Even though a lot of employers today are more concerned about the skills and what their employees and potential employees are bringing to the table for their organization based on Experience, Certifications still play a very vital role in the promotion and hiring processes in every organization. Certificates are a testament to the fact that one is actively seeking self-development and improvement.
Interestingly, online education has made it a lot easier for individuals to learn and earn certificates while retaining their full-time jobs and daily hustles and a lot of people are plugging into it to share in this awesome experience.
However, one important question that is usually asked is how valuable these certificates earned from online studies are. Well, the answer to this question is dependent on the institution offering the program and sometimes the program being offered since a lot of online courses and some learning platforms are unaccredited.
Meanwhile, these programs howbeit unaccredited, offer hands-on training from Industry experts to impart learners with in-demand skills that employers are constantly on the lookout for.
Some other employers may not recognize certificates from these platforms as valid, but they would indeed be impressed by the employee or potential employee’s desire to improve themselves because they understand that personal growth always has a ripple effect on productivity on every team.
So, for those whose learning goal is to earn more valuable certifications, it is more advisable to enroll in accredited online courses. In the end, the cost of learning will pay off in the reduction in time spent job searching, the number of opportunities that it will create, and the remuneration that comes with such opportunities.
