“I didn't think the certificate was going to be beneficial but it definitely was. I was able to obtain a good paying job with excellent benefits by adding the certification to my resume. Under normal circumstances the position I obtained is filled by temporary employees or employees that are already in the company but because of the certification I was hired directly by the company without having to go through a temp service.”
