Hi,

Thats what I meant in earlier post. Certification is
just a method to get to the point on the interview
table. The skills and experience then are needed to
get through the interview as well as to get to work.
Finally, your work/skill makes it sure you get the job
or remain in the job. Certification cannot gurantee
(and its not meant to guarantee) you a remain in the
job.

Hello all,

Being a IT consultant myself, as well as an IT
trainer in various 
technical courses, I can only agree all the way with
Robert. 
Certifications are an industry nowadays, and by no
means provide proof 
of proficiency in a field. Most certifications can
be earned just by 
memorizing knowledge. Only the ones that combine
theoretical and 
practical examinations really test (and prove) an
individual's technical 
competencies and skills. Certifications are only a
way that one can make 
his/her cv look better and distinctive, nothing
more, nothing less. An 
experienced  interviewer can quickly identify a
"paper-cert" holder from 
a skilled candidate.
