Can I put EntryLevel qualification on my CV/Resume/LinkedIn profile?

Can the project I did be added to my portfolio and my LinkedIn profile as an industrial work experience?

πŸ₯œ In a nutshell:
​
You can display your EntryLevel course on your CV, resume, or LinkedIn profile to highlight skills and projects completed, with qualifications gained.

Absolutely! Completing a course with EntryLevel is a noteworthy accomplishment that you should proudly showcase on your CV, resume, or LinkedIn profile.

How to list your experience

  • CV/resume: You can add the completed course under sections like 'Education', 'Projects', or 'Portfolio', depending on how you want to frame your experience. Detailing the skills you acquired and the projects you completed can significantly enhance your resume.

Here's an example of a student who made her Data Analysis Portfolio using our Canva Template.

Example 1: Portfolio section

A portfolio section was added to her resume, and she added a clickable link to it from Canva's Public View Link feature:

Example 2: Projects section

Alternatively, you can add your learning in a projects section with a clickable link. The best way to do this is to add the title of the project, the dates you did the course, and a summary of your project.

  • You can utilize free platforms like this if you're saving your resume as a PDF. If you're using Canva, you can share by clicking "Public Link View."

  • LinkedIn: For LinkedIn, you can include your EntryLevel experience under the "Licenses & Certifications" if you received a certificate, or the "Education" section. We also suggest uploading and featuring your certificate or showcasing your portfolio in a post, which you can then pin to your profile under "Featured" to highlight your achievement to prospective employers.

Is this an industrial work experience?

Currently, EntryLevel is not recognized as industrial work experience. We are actively working to have our courses formally recognized, and we will notify you as soon as this status is updated. In the meantime, we recommend including the completion of the courses in the 'Extracurricular Activities' or 'Projects' sections of your resume. This can help potential employers understand the value and relevance of your experience.

Showcasing your completion of an EntryLevel course can set you apart in the job market by demonstrating your commitment to professional growth and your proactive approach to acquiring new skills.

Can I list EntryLevel as work?

While we encourage you to share your accomplishments, please ensure not to list yourself as an employee of EntryLevel or any of our mentor companies. Instead, focus on describing the skills and knowledge you gained.
