    Hi there Sakaruba,

    First of all, congratulations on your A+ Doesn't it feel good ?

    I'm a bit of a newb myself so if you hang around here long enough, someone else with more experience will be able to help you - in fact, like buses, I bet 3 come along at once.

    You should probably let the good people on here know more about yourself though. Your age, jobs, career background, work experience etc so that they can tailor their advice to you.

    Good luck

    I just took a quick look at my online CV and saw that I only mention my certs by listing them under my name at the top. The rest of the CV is laid out as follows:

    Head

    Includes my name, website URL and email address.

    Summary

    Applications

    specific software applications that I use in my work.

    Experience

    This is broken down into the different specific types of experience.

    Education

    Feel free to have a look Here.

    As you did I have stuck in the next cert im doign as WIP - I also put this in my list of education, so started with GCSEs, Alevels etc then put Professional at the top (in chronological order), and mentioned the cert. Also as with the gcses etc i put the place of study - this time round I put self study to make it look better :D

    Also - i foudn it best to put at the top name address etc, then a small statement about myself, then skills (lateral thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork etc), and then after that education. Try and put this on the 1st page though.

    Then on the 2nd I put work experience, and then hobbies

    Hey Sakuraba,

    You could probably write a whole novel on how good your cert is but the real selling point is yourself. Make sure you get across all your relevant experience (to the job your applying for) and then back it up with any qualifications. Maybe explain what experiences you gained from studying for your cert, labs you set up, operating systems you've configured etc, etc.

    To be honest, you look like you'll be aiming for an entry level role into IT where you probably wont be expected to have loads of great qualifications and technical knowledge. At this stage the employer will be more interested in you, your aptitude towards work and self development.

    The fact that you self-study shows a willingness to learn and self-motivation, which are all good points in my book.

    Hope this helps. 8)

    Main job applicants for A+ first of all seem to head towards first line support jobs..... Then try and expand from there. Personally i just header my CV PC Engineer instead of Curriculum Vitae.. Then list certs below :D
