    Now I've passed my MCSE, I need to update my CV. What I'd like to do instead of writing out each MCP exam I've taken is summarise the MCSE and supply a link to my transcript sharing page. Is this what most people do and are there any security risks in doing this? I just ask as my CV will be displayed online for anyone to view.
    Certifications: BSc, MCP, MCSA, MCSE

    Hi Andy, create a section on your CV called professional qualification and list your MCSE 2003 and put a logo of your cert on the far right hand corner of your CV or at the bottom page. You do not need to list each on your CV:biggrin

    My CV just has 'MCSE - Windows NT & 2000, MCDBA 2000' on it.

    Can't be arsed putting all the MCPs - although admittedly its pretty easy to spot my electives when you see the MCDBA as well :oops:

    I think the only time an employer will care what your electives are is if you're going for a specific role like a DBA, Exchange Admin or Security role.

    PS: I wouldn't bother with the logo either. Unless you're sending out printed CVs, almost all agencies, recruiters and the like will just delete them anyway - that's if they survive the upload process!

    Saying "MCSE: Windows 2003" should be all that needs to be said. If an employer needs to have the MCSE and exams spelled out to them... then you probably don't want to work for that employer, to be honest.
