Discussion on: What if Certifications Didn’t Suck?

I've received opportunities for certifications back in high school where I obtained a free:

  • MTA: Intro to HTML & CSS
  • MTA: Operating System Fundamentals
  • IC3 GS5: Digital Literacy

Certifications are as you pointed nice to have, which is why I have obtained them when they were offered -- But I also feel that you can learn a lot while trying to obtain one.

For example, in the Operating System Fundamentals, we had to dig deeper into the Windows 10 operating system and learn of the features windows offers you usually wouldn't touch or adjust daily. However, I learned a bit more about my work environment that I used daily so when a situation happens, I save time in the long-run.
