    While that particular statement may be true, just having a cert might get your foot in the door, but unless you have the knowledge to backup some of the more difficult interview questions, a cert is meaningless.

    They may as well give out MCSE's as the prize in Cracker Jack boxes now.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Personally i been thinking about this issue and that i should start writing nicely, but it is hard to do when almost every single friend writes in crazy way.
    Slang to save time, and sound like an idiot, well that's just great. Instead of trying to save time and use unintelligible sentence structure, how about just learning the correct way to speak and type.

    After all, it isn't hard to type over 80wpm if you just practice it a little bit.

    Plus posts like yours in a tech forum just means that people generally won't take you for your word because after all, if you can't even write intelligently, what else could you possible know?

    I've been to a few places where they wont even look at your resume' if you dont have certs. I know it's lame, and there's nothing better than good old fashion experience, but sometimes if you dont have the cert, they wont hire you.

    At a different job we had a guy apply for a tech spot on the team. He didn't get hired because he didn't have his A+. He had his Mcse and Ccna, but no A+ so they didn't hire him. Anyone that has taken the A+ knows that it's to determine you know what a computer actually is.
    What is that?
    A motherboard.
    What is that?
    A stick of Ram.
    What is that?
    A coffee holder.
    Um no, that's a cdrom tray.
    Doh.

    On the flip side, some people are good at memorizing and test taking. I was lucky to get into the field without anything. Then started picking up stuff along the way. I still want to get my Cwna, but it would be kind of tough knowing that I really dont do anything wirelessly for work. I just fiddle with it at home.
