My current company purchased 2 licenses for certifications for me, though I am in the process of looking for a new job. I plan on getting them before I leave but I don’t want this to halt my job hunt. In the meantime, is it a good idea/the standard to put the certifications you are currently working towards on your resume as “in progress”?
The downsides I see are 1) if I end up leaving before I compete them, I’m sure my company will revoke the licenses so I’ll probably not end up getting them. 2) I don’t actually have them so I don’t want this to reflect poorly on me to future employers.
But I want to use this as an opportunity to show prospective employers that I do know a fair amount in these particular areas.
What do you all think?
(Edit: if not on my resume, this could be something to mention in first round interviews with HR?)
