Linked – How microcertifications work for IT job seekers and employers

posted in: Career, Links, Tech | 0

The idea intrigues me, but the article doesn’t really list any examples of micro-certifications that are out there. If you’ve looked into this sort of thing, can you give me some examples?

“”The problem with traditional certifications is they’re 20 feet wide and a foot deep, so to speak. Take Linux, for example. If you’re trying to get a job as a Linux systems administrator, if you take a certification, you’re learning everything there is to know about Linux when you’ll only ever use 25 percent of that knowledge on the job. Or, if you’re trying to land a role that requires AWS skills, you might only need mastery of a few of the more than seventy different components AWS has,” he says.”
