Certs, Certs and more Certs!!
Way back in the day there was no certification for staffing, recruiting and sourcing. Then came AIRS, and now we have…a lot. The question is why? Why so many? The answer really is money. The companies giving these certifications see a chance to make money.
How different are they from one to the other? Does one provide some mystic in site, or skills or tools that the others do not? The answer is not really for the most part they all teach the same things, or at least have additional courses that together teach the same stuff. The thing is though, each teaches it in a different way, and therein lays the real benefit. We all learn differently. We all take different things from the way they are said, shown and explained.
The real benefit is not so much what they teach as they all teach a lot of the same things, but the benefit is in the way the teach and your real goal should be finding one the teaches in a way that allows you to get the most out of it. Now of course there is usually a cost difference as well, what you need to do is find one that teaches in a way that works for you at eh most cost effective price for YOU.
