How do you list your certification on your resume?

I am currently studying for my SCJA and was wondering how you guys typically list your certification on your resume? I know the Sun certifications come with a logo. Do you guys just use this logo? just use regular text? combination of both? can someone provide me with a visual example?


EDIT: And do you typically list your test score on your resume?

Hi, usually in your resume' you should always order stuff by date, by putting the last acquisitions first (chronological order). For example if you got a SCJP in July/2008 and a SCWCD in June/2009 you should be listing them as follow:


June-2009 Sun Certified Web Component Developer (SCWCD) - Mark 100%
July-2008 Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP) - Mark 70%


you could place the logo too, but I think its useless (I wouldn't like anything except a personal image in the resume'). Just list your certifications as plain text.

if you have a personal website, then you putting the logo there would be a good idea.


if you want to see how they look in my CV check it from my website

For me I put it in chronological order. I don't think the order is important much.


SCJA 1.0, SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCJP 5.0, SCEA 5, SCBCD 5; OCUP - Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced; IBM Certified Solution Designer - OOAD, vUML 2; SpringSource Certified Spring Professional

Thansk , the CV is a container that gets filled by time don't worry, and don't forget that the CV will be only the ticket to a real interview and the interview is what will judge wether you are good or not, think of the CV as a first impression

I put certifications that I think will have more impact first and I use only one logo to display on the resume
