How many certifications before you are a
MCTT? (Microsoft Certified Test Taker)
A Website Dedicated to
Computer Professional...and some not so
By Doug Chick
is the line between having too many certifications and just enough? Does
your resume give the impression that you have more experience in test taking
than actual work experience? If this sounds like you than here's a quick
test to see how you rank. Relax Poindexter...there's no test here.
The fact is that many people are acquiring computer certifications
without any experience, and quite frankly very little of the information
learned to pass a test stays with you long enough to be useful in the real
world. So why are so many people spending so much time and money trying to
get as many certifications as they can? Because they are being lured in with the promise of high paying jobs with as
much as a few computer certifications, and it's just not true.
I'm wonder sometimes; what is the most computer certifications that you can
have without discrediting your resume? There must be a formula that equates the
number of certs, with actual work experience divided by your age, times the
square root of all the brain dumps that you've lied about never going to.
But if you have too many acronyms under your name, some might say that more
than a mouthful is a waste...wait a minute, I think I said that wrong.
