    Default Resume advice- almost finished study

    Anybody who has any experience with hiring or has been in a similar position?

    DH will soon be qualified for a role (in a similar field of work) but the completion of qualification he is doing is 4-6 weeks away. It's hard to get a straight answer from his tutor regarding this.

    His ideal job is advertising now with a closing date of next week. The role requires experience (which he has, but also asks for the qualification) Although he feels as though he doesn't have a chance, he wants to apply anyway.

    What is best to write on resume? Should he say that he is almost finished the qualification? And give an expected date?

    I'm a sahm and hubby has been with same company for many years so bit lost with writing resume!

    Thanks for any help

    Depending on what he is studying and the experience of his tutor, they may not be able to give him much advice on this.

    I say apply for it, be upfront about expected completion date in the resume and cover letter. Make sure he works in his experience in the cover letter and how his qualification enhances this. Make sure he addresses all the selection criteria too. Might be worth getting the tutor or someone as a reference to confirm he will be completing the qual very soon.

    Good luck!

    Yes it depends a bit on the field but in my field you would write:

    Name of qualification- candidate. Expected completion date/date/year

    This. 4 to 6 weeks is shorter than some recruitment processes/providing notice periods so should hardly make a difference if he has experience. Good luck to him.
