I was hoping someone would have real world examples on how obtaining a Spring certification has helped with their career. Thanks!

Hello Carl,

Being a Spring certified professional and bragging about it on my blog made Steve Anglin approach me in June 2014.

Is this enough of a success story?  

For real now: being certified might attract the attention of some recruiters, but in the end nothing beats hands-on practical experience.

Cheers!

@Campbell it is more common than you would imagine. Apparently it's because of social media - we all feel inadequate, compared to all the people that seem great.

@Aleksandrs: I have written five technical books so far, I still have bouts of doubt and inadequacy when writing or at work. I use this feeling of not being good enough as a reason to do better next time.

Cheers!
