I can probably answer this best through my own experience. To date, I’ve passed a few certifications with VMware. Before that, I had a couple of years of job experience, but I didn’t have a way to validate my knowledge. From a career perspective, getting this certification was completely life-changing. Within a month of receiving my certification, I had a very attractive offer for a new job. This was due to the recruiter being able to simply search for VCP holders in my country and know that I met a particular set standard for the role that they were looking for. Beyond this, though, I had much more confidence in my knowledge when contributing to solutions within a team.
The reality is, you can say that you’re an expert in your field, but simply saying you’re an expert in something doesn’t amount to much on a CV or in an interview. What a certification does is it validates your experience to prospective employers. By definition, it creates a minimum standard by which an employer can assess your skills.

Passing this VMware Certified Professional exam has done wonders for my career. I stayed in the same workplace, one of the larger banks in East Africa, but with the certification, I was actually able to negotiate a new role and higher pay. Of course, they were hoping I would just use my newly learned skills in helping out with our cloud servers but I held out for a new role, higher salary, new contract, and I got it! I told my best friend about it and he’s taking the course right now too. Cloud Computing certifications are the best kept secret in the IT world at the moment!
