I was reading an article, and at the end, where it has a small blurb about the author, some of her qualifications were Certified Interview Coach ™ (CIC) Job & Career Transition Coach (JCTC) and Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW).
This, in my opinion, is total bullshit. Certified Interview Coach? Certified Resume Writer? Come on, people. Things like this are part of the problem. Companies are looking for people who will fit perfectly into what they want without having to find someone actually qualified to grow into the position and people like this help them do just exactly that.
It’s getting to the point where everything is “Certified”. Why yes, Bob, I am certified to wipe my own butt and, while I am not certified to do so, I am quiet capable of blowing my nose should I need to.
The people who came up with things like this deserve to be tortured to death with really bad pop music.
And yes, I realize that was a redundant statement.
