Certificates don’t compensate for experience… that took you a while to figure out, it seems.

Actually I’m surprised you got to the 6th company before someone told you.

Experience is what you need, and you can’t jump over that. Certificates mainly serve to make customers feel good when you work as a co tractor for a big service provider. I never needed one in 25 years.
