Hi Bees! Anyone work in digital and/or social media and have any social media type certifcations? If so, what are they and how did you obtain them (online reading/videos/tests or quizzes, through a seminar, through your company).
For instance, not Social Media but there is Google AdWord certification and that one that where I live and with my digital background and experience, people are always asking if I have (I need to just get it, it’s free) because they want to talk to me about jobs…jobs they cannot find qualified people for (so when jobs needing Google Adwords come available, I get about 5 calls/emails from different recruiters because of my expeirence with Google AdWords). I could get more if I didn’t have a job already and I seeked it out (& got hte certication.
I know Hootsuite has a certifcation (free, just have to read/take a test or quizzes I believe). Last year I got digital and social media certiicates through a company my work signed up for..we had to watch videos, read, study & take quizzes and tests.
There’s so much out there…I’m just looking to see what people have and is it useful in your industry for getting a job or just something to add to your resume/LinkedIn. I work at a place that is talking about social media certifcations and what’s useful, etc
