I am nearing my graduation and currently looking for jobs. I am looking into some certifications which will make my resume more professional. Specifically, I am talking about SAS certification and Java certification. However, having used SAS for my coursework and a couple of projects, I am not sure whether it will add more value to my resume. Also I have good working knowledge of Python. Specifically, I am targeting statisticians / data miners and related jobs.
Since I do not have a degree in computer science, I think Java certification would add more value to my resume.
What do you think? Do the certifications really add value to your resume? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
