I am seeking some advice on how to word my professional designation (almost) on my resume.
I have completed all the necessary education and work experience for my accounting designation, all that is left is to complete my membership application and approval my the professional body before acheiving the designation.
This process will take apx 3 months, as the approval is only done at BoD meetings and the board only meets 4 times a year, thus I have to wait until January 2013 for the next meeting.
I am not sure how to best word this on my resume or cover letter. I have just been stating that I have completed all necessary requirements and am waiting for approval, but, as previously stated, I am not sure this is the best way to express this when I am competeing with designated professionals for the same position.
I have 20 years work experience in my field, moved up in the corporate world without a designation, but saw my options being limited without one so I went back to school and completed it, so I feel I have the necessary work experiece potential employers will want, but I have been turned down for some opportunities as I was not designated, (sorry for the run on sentance).
I appreciate any advice others could offer.
