Why am I not a Gigantic Fan of Certifications?
- Anything that can be bootcamp'ed is worthless.
- Anything where all the answers can be found in the book for the classware, and you are allowed to take the classware book with you to the test.. worthless
- Anything that does not require a practical exam. (Either written or physically typing something) is worthless. Which is why I am a slightly larger fan of the Gold GIAC certifications. As they require you to write a practical. Or the harder Cisco ones, or the Redhat exams.
Personally I'd rather hire someone that can do the job, do it well, and if they don't know the answer, know where to find it.
