You can find several reasons to pursuit a certification on google but I will give only 2 important reasons according with the Canadian job market for professionals and migrants. As you well know, one of the mayor filters to get a job in Canada is that you have Canadian Experience, the second one is the Years of Experience in your filed, how long time of experience do you have in…
Being newcomer or Canadian, you should demonstrate not only experience but knowledge and with the certification in the field, the recruiters are feel comfortable that you have it. You will get the interview faster than another person not showing certifications, additional of this, please do not forget explaining in detail all your duties where you apply the certification. Also, the certification will support that you are an expert and they will have confident on your skills that you write down into your resume.
