Has anyone found the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification to be helpful for people in non-technical roles? Any experience in how potential employers view this cert would be greatly appreciated!

I think the cert gives a good overview of cloud concepts and helps you understand what tech folks are talking about when they say things like "S3 bucket". To employers it only shows that you're familiar with the cloud but doesn't give any indication of expertise. I definitely recommend getting it if you're new to cloud - it's a fairly easy cert to get and does a good job of covering different topics. If you already have cloud experience, it's a waste of time.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
