October 23, 2023
Feeling under the weather? Don't worry, so is our co-host, Clark! This episode packs a punch, blending together the unlikely mix of illness, horror movies, and workplace certifications. We're sorry for the delay in delivery, but when one host is 90% virus, things can get a little chaotic. Now, Clark might be battling a cold, but it doesn't stop him from sharing his thoughts on the latest AI developments, our mutual love for hair-raising horror flicks, and the controversial concept of a limb-chopping hero story. Ever wondered if certifications are your golden ticket to success in the corporate world? Squid Boy and Individual Contributor have! So, we decided it was high time we addressed this ongoing debate. While Clark and I are in agreement that certifications can be advantageous, especially if your company foots the bill, we don't view them as an essential element of success. And yes, we also share how certifications could give your resume's SEO a nice little boost! But we don't stop there. Our curiosity piques as we further delve into various IT certifications, including those from Cisco, AWS, and CompTIA Linux Plus. We believe that certifications can play a pivotal role in climbing the corporate ladder, especially if your chosen field is tech-oriented. So, if your company offers to pay for them, why not grab the opportunity? Let's unpick the world of certifications, their relevance in the fast-paced tech industry, and how they can help future-proof your career.
