sariel91631yNot a recruiter but I interview and hire developers.
When I see AWS accreditation they go to the top of my list because we work heavily in AWS.
I would assume it would be the same for Google, Azure, Oracle, etc.
Verifiable experience in a given field is always more valuable to me than any certification or education, when interviewing a candidate. But when I see a claim of either, I will definitely press for evidence of that knowledge. I will never give a candidate the benefit of the doubt.
When I said I would never give a candidate the benefit of the doubt, what I meant was that I would never give a certification authority that benefit. Having a cert, to me, is just a claim of knowledge. That claim will not stand on its own.
@bahua Do you see a difference between a certification on one resume, and a bullet item under an employer and job title on the same functional area/tool/specialization on a different resume that didn’t have a certification-in terms of what counts as being a ‘claim of knowledge’?
The main difference I've seen is that certs are typically listed on a resume if the candidate has no professional experience in that topic. That raises my eyebrows much more than a claim of experience.
Go for it, as long as it’s good quality and you can prove to your interviewers that you know enough about it to do well in the role you’re interviewing for!
Having knowledge and the cert is one thing; but try your best to really understand that knowledge and what your classes covered! That will make the most difference!
arekxv10681yYou can get a cert and never use that knowledge at all. Just because you have Solutions Architect cert in AWS does not make you a Solutions Architect. You still need to have experience to know when to do and when to break/bend the rules because of issues or office politics or specific implementation.
Senior Recruiters: Are GCP accreditations worth it? I’m looking to take the Professional Cloud Developer course.
Do they give weight on a CV?
