Do you really *need* that certification? Which ones are most important to have? In this episode we take a look at the importance of certifications AND what it means to use your own experience while developing your expertise in your industry. Certifications are not the be-all and end-all AND they are certainly an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to your own education.
In This Episode You Will Hear:
