Does Ethica’s CIFE Get Me a Job?

Ethica's certificates significantly improve your chances of getting a job.


In fact, in our experience, the CIFE and ACIFE are not only the strongest and most prestigious certificates in the Islamic finance industry, but also the most life transforming. You go from merely understand the basics to internalizing the theoretical and practical underpinnings of the industry. You have to put in the time and effort to find your career opportunity, but Ethica's certificates will be there to differentiate you from the crowd.

When your resume reads 'Ethica CIFE™ Graduate,' recruiters know that you bring more Islamic finance know-how to the job than most around. Simply search “Ethica�? on LinkedIN to see the diversity – both geographical and professional – of Ethica’s CIFE and ACIFE graduates and the organizations they work for.

Included with every Ethica certification is our "Career Advancement Package." Every graduate is entitled to:
  • Referrals to three Islamic banks. In the competitive world of job hunting when thousands are applying for a handful of positions, a referral often makes the difference between getting an interview or not.
  • 1-on-1 career counseling with a former Harvard and MIT recruiter for Morgan Stanley. Learn the closely guarded secrets of what works and what doesn’t.
  • CV review and job interview coaching.
  • Recommendation letters.
  • Use CIFE™ and ACIFE™ as a designatory title after your name on resumes and LinkedIn.
  • Access alumni network spanning +160 financial institutions in 65 countries.
  • Search 2,000+ "Ethica" hits on LinkedIn.
