As individual professionals strive to advance their own careers, it might occur to them to think about what the average successful executive or business person’s career looks like.
One thing though find is that certifications are a core component of advancing in many parts of the business world.
The certifications are the proof of expertise. Anybody can wear a suit, but part of what makes a practical business person with utility to a firm is his or her credentials and specifically, certifications that show these people have studied the skills that make them valuable for project management or anything else
Online and real-world value
Of course there’s a place on LinkedIn for your certifications. The designers of that platform recognized why people obtain credentials like these and how important it is to present them to the world.
But these certifications can be valuable in real life too, in interview or on-site where you’re actually getting involved in an employer or potential employer’s business operations, putting your hands to work and setting your eyes on what a company is doing.
In fact, many of our clients would say that’s one of the times that they felt most successful in obtaining this kind of knowledge. Hands-on situations show why these certifications are important and why course designers include certain kinds of information.
That’s why someone might phrase it this way: “what’s in your suit pocket?” It’s kind of like those credit card commercials where Samuel L. Jackson yells at you – only perhaps less annoying, and more relevant to actual workplace success. Again, anyone can take out a credit card, but investing in professional education takes patience, although it can provide a big payout in the end.
