Have you just completed American TESOL Institute Philippines’ Advanced TESOL Program? Are you thinking about requesting for a certificate to showcase what you just learned? Maybe you’re here because you want to know if you should include the certification in your resume or CV?
Well, the easy answer to that is—yes! You earned it, so you should definitely be adding it to your CV or resume, especially if it is related to the position you’re applying for.
But, you have to know how to use the certificate in the right way. So where on your resume should you list your TESOL certificate?
Here are four possible sections and their pros and cons. Your approach will definitely depend on your other experiences, skills and qualifications, so be sure to read through all of our recommendations to choose the best option!
If you have been participating in different training programs, conferences and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules, your TESOL Certification would be a fantastic addition to this section.
You can name it in various ways, such as “Professional Development”, “Trainings and Workshops Attended”, or “Further Training”, and follow the format you used for your Education section.
TIP: Be selective. You don’t have to indicate all of the workshops you attended if they are not related to your intended position. You can also focus on CPD units and training courses exclusively and leave out the seminars or conferences.
Since ATI-Phils is a recognized language institution, you can include our Advanced TESOL program, with the certification as a bulleted achievement or highlight beneath, alongside the rest of your educational background.
TIP: Consistency is key. List ATI-Phils in the same way you would cite a degree-granting school. Match the arrangement of information with the format you used for your other educational qualifications.
The TESOL certificate we offer is internationally recognized and comes directly from ATI USA. Thus, you can add an entirely new section to your CV or resume specifically for certifications and licenses.
TIP: Be strategic. The layout can make or break how your resume is perceived. Creating another section can fill up empty space, but it can also introduce new problems if the information ends up too cramped.
A good resume or CV will typically have a brief statement at the beginning to offer a professional summary of who you are, what you can bring to the team and what you want to achieve. You can use the TESOL Certificate as a strong opener or descriptor for that statement.
TIP: It is an easy fix. This is the simplest and quickest way to insert the certification, without having to figure out how to alter the layout and other sections of the resume or CV.
Try out the suggestions above and see which one works for you! Remember that you know yourself and what you can offer, so build your CV or resume in a way that best portrays that profile.
The TESOL Certificate can improve your chances at landing a job or being accepted for further education, like graduate studies or exchange programs. However, your qualifications are only as good as you can make them out to be; it all boils down to presentation on your resume or CV. You definitely want to be highlighting it the right way, so that your application leaves an impression at first glance and paves the way for great career opportunities!
