Is there any point in getting small qualifications that are unrelated to the job you're applying for and what does that tell the employer?

For example, is there any use to a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification specifically on a resume if you aren't applying for a job teaching English? Does it look any better on paper?

Should I prioritize getting a Bachelors degree or getting job certifications?

I have a two-year degree in what is essentially digital photography (my childhood dream) that I got immediately after high school. I have since decided that this isn’t a good fit for me as a career, and have been struggling to find my first job. In 2019, I went back to my local community college to take some professional development classes to try and build my resume. These classes so far have been training in MS Word, Excel, and Access, communication skills, and customer service skills. I’ve had to step away for a bit for personal reasons, but I plan to start working towards the Professional Administrative Certificate of Excellence (PACE Certification) in the next few weeks. But. I’ve recently learned that the college money that my parents set aside for me is still available - they paid for my community college degree out of pocket (which completely blows my mind). It’s a nest egg big enough that I can essentially get a bachelors degree for “free” without taking out any student loans. This is an amazing opportunity that I am lucky to have, and I want to make sure that I use this money wisely. My parents have been super generous by letting me live at home until I can get my feet under me…but I’m now in my early 30s. My dad plans to retire next year. We’re currently trying to navigate what that looks like, but I want to be financially independent as quickly as possible so I don’t become a leech. I don’t know if I am necessarily trying to choose my entire career right now. I’ve always been told that education was the key to a good life and career, and I don’t want to waste this money. I am currently looking for work and doing all the things associated with that - I am constantly applying for jobs, I volunteer, I’ve taken several job/career assessments, I’m getting into networking, etc. I’m trying to cast as wide of a net as possible to find this first job - I’m open to almost anything. So - what would be the best strategy for my situation? Should I go for the bachelors degree? Or should I focus on getting certified in various job fields/disciplines and get my bachelors after I find employment? What is the quickest route to a job that will allow me to finally move out of my parents’ house (and, preferably, to buy my own home)?

What do I need to do in order to qualify for an MLT certification?

I am nearing the end of my M.S. program in Biology and I do not have an MLT certification that a lot of CLIA laboratory jobs require. Only a few colleges provide an MLT program and I can't afford a $5k program right now. The other option is to spend three years in a clinical lab but no lab has responded because they all require an MLT to begin with, so I have no idea how to actually qualify for the MLT certification exam despite having a B.S. in Biology and soon an M.S. in the same field. What do I need to do that is affordable and practical for me to get an MLT certification? I desperately need professional advice, as my professors do not even know how MLT certification works.

What would be the benefits of pursuing an HR management certificate?

I'm getting my associate's in accounting in May 2023. I discovered that if I took 3 more classes I could earn an HR management certificate. I'm really tempted by this, but it would cost about $2400. I'm also not sure if it would be worth it in the long run, as I might not get a bachelor's in management/accounting. Still, it would be nice to have it as something to fall back on for a career switch/retirement job/etc. Would I be able to use it with my accounting degree to get into payroll administration? What are your thoughts/advice?

What is the difference between getting a certification and obtaining an M.A?

This question has always seemed to bother me. Maybe it's just because I don't even know what a certification is. But overall, I would like to know the difference between the both and is one better to have than the other? Also, How many years of schooling does going for a certification require? Can you even receive both? I've only heard of one of my friends going for her certification in the field of psychology but never bothered to ask about it. #masters #masters-degree #certifications #certification
