Are Online Certifications worth it? Is it worth adding them to your CV?

    Yes, in that they demonstrate knowledge; no in that they don't indicate competency. An individual can pass a test without really knowing how to apply that knowledge. They do help with getting hired ... sort of.

    @Dreaming all other things being equal, the person with the certs will get the job over the one that doesn't have them. A recruiter who sees two identical candidates, but one has certs, and one does not, the recruiter will pick the one with certs.

    At the end what really matters is the ability to fulfill your duty at work. You could have all the certifications and all the diplomas on the world but if you have no knowledge it will mean nothing.
