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?

How do I better highlight my marketing experience on my resume?
