Bamboo Solutions: Prioritizing Flexibility1 | 2 |
“Certification is the way of coming to a conclusion about someone’s competency a lot faster,” Tanner said. “By and large, you don’t find that exact right person with glowing recommendations, but if they have certifications, that’s a way of saying, ‘Hey, this person gets it. They’ve done it,’ and it gives you, the employer, a certain level of confidence.”
But the confidence that certifications initially provide in the interview may be short-lived in the context of that person’s overall impact as an employee. Since Bamboo offers specific Web solutions via SharePoint, someone with administrative experience in that would be a premium over just a certification on the same subject without any experience. According to Tanner, recommendations from previous jobs carry more weight than anything. If someone has shown a history of problem solving within a certain system, that may be the most valuable trait of all.
