Credentials … How Important Are They?

How important are professional credentials? Kammer & Associates has found that designations can help enhance your professional stature.

Our advice to clients: Earn any and all certifications and accreditations possible. You have nothing to lose and much to gain. Why?

  • Designations can promote a positive first impression with employers and peers.
  • The process itself – review of your experience, written exam, peer interviews – exposes you to a new and often higher-level
    group of peers.
  • Knowing the criteria to obtain credentials is an excellent review of what your industry views as important. It also instills the discipline of keeping up with professional standards.
  • Having credentials can give you access to special training, seminars, publications, etc.

Earning professional credentials is a career-building opportunity that can greatly exceed the effort involved.
