    I want to express on my resume that I am currently looking for a job which allow me to fulfill work experience requirement.

    What should I put on my resume?

    I had the experience requirement met before I passed, but I've seen people use a Summary statement like “All exams passed, seeking to fulfill experience requirement to become fully licensed.” While I was working through exams I listed “Passed x of 4 sections, 150 credits rule met, work experience requirement met.” Got my license and a new Tax job within a month of each other. Depending on your aspirations, it might be worth picking up a tax prep job this time of year just to have a little relevant experience that might get your foot in the door at firms. Good Luck!

    I always attach a cover letter to my resume and, before I was officially licensed, wrote a brief paragraph on my cover letter explaining that I had passed the exams, had all the requirements met, but was waiting for the state board to process my application.
