Look at the last line in the job requirement at this post webpage
Astonishing ! How can certifications even matter when a person is expected to satisfy all/most of the other requirements ?

I don't see a whole lot of jobs that prefer certifications and certainly not at such senior levels. Why would the OP/her company prefer certifications ?

Moving this topic to the "jobs discussions" forum


And BTW, I deleted your post in that topic. That topic is basically a "help wanted" for a role -- and not really an appropriate place to discuss the validity of the help wanted ad. You can discuss that here instead.
