Is the AWS cloud practitioner cert meaningful to get or is it just another basic cert that’s useless?

People who know distributed computing as an engineer or a scientist see through the marketing BS. Always be cloud vendor agnostic. Certifications are just a way to make you a loyal customer

Yeah, have my VCP and CCNA, and barely used it for work ever, just need to find something to fulfill my training requirement at this point

As a non tech person, it was useful going through the training to understand the basics of AWS products and all the non-sense product names they’ve come up with. Will I take more certs? Prob not

Good practice to prep for a harder cert like Developer or Architect. It used to be a prerequisite but they loosened that requirement.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
