errr... a cert chaser eh ?


I hate certs and how cert crazy employers have become....

I can get any damn cert they want me to....  but they need to pay
for it.... I know my abilities, and certs (or lack thereof) don't
prove crap about someones abilities (most of them don't anyway).

I sometimes wonder if I'm having a tough time getting interviews because
I haven't gone the route of certs...  wish I'd have known they would be
so damn important... I wouldn't have bothered with a college education
(the original "cert").  Make me pretty damn mad.
