Hi,

How can we display like we have cleared some certification?

Is there anything like we need to include the logo (for ex. Sun logo for sun certifications) in our resume?

Pls tell me which way we can attract the employers in this regard..

Please use real words and proper grammar when posting, as explained here. (Common acronyms such as IMHO, BTW, TIA, etc. are fine.) We have lots of other useful tips for asking questions on JavaRanch as well.

Setting aside the grammar issues and whathaveyou.

I haven't taken a glance at the logo guidelines from Sun for a while, but I would admit that I'd be hesitant to put the logos of the programs/exams that I've passed on a resume. Firstly, they're often of varying quality and size, and so it would be more of a distraction than an aid. Second, the logos can be somewhat bulky and just add to what the person handling the first screening has to look at. And finally, there's just easier ways to attract attention to the titles.

Personally, I list them in a section along with the other items that constitute my non-job-specific qualifications and continuing education, ordered by their relevance to my job. (In my case, that puts my Sun certifications first, followed by my IBM and PHP certs.) I don't move it any higher because, frankly, I feel my job experience would be more important for an interview, but that the certifications are a 'bonus' to show that I know what I'm talking about...

Hope that helps at all.
