IT people (project managers in particular) know about the pressure to embellish their CVs with industry accreditations. And many have succumbed to the pressure. They join an association, gather evidence to prove their competency, and do exams to gain those (supposedly) all important post nominals.
I do wonder if all this extra curricular activity is really worthwhile. After all, most of the senior professionals I know don’t seem to bother with any of it.
To my way of thinking, a string of post-nominals trailing off the page is not a good look. What I see is not a person with an eminent set of qualifications, but someone who may be not be quite there yet.
What do you think are the benefits of industry accreditations, and what’s the best way to present them to clients and employers?
