I may be interested, but the question I have to ask is: Does anyone
care if I have an LPI certification. And by anyone I mean the
business/hiring world, not the world in general. I pretty sure the
world as a whole does not care what certifications I may have
Or put another way, Is the LPI certification respected by the IT
community as a whole? How many job descriptions require it? How many
employers really even know what it is?
Why should I spend my time, energy and money chasing a certification
that may not advance my career?
