Certifications

Some business leaders look for "certifications" when hiring workers. It's a magic pill, and it's supposed to cure the common cold and solve the problems of worker competence.

But does it? I think not. It's nothing but some meaningless award. See here. Leaders who rely on such things miss the point. They don't know how to recognize a competent (or incompetent) worker. So they rely on acronyms and pieces of paper that the applicant paid for. And they end up eliminating good candidates, while letting in those who can "take multiple choice tests" but do no useful work.
