It depends on your role and what you really want to do

All depends on what your goals are

Very context dependent on your niche. PMP would be yes for Federal practices, otherwise no. AWS (architect etc.) of course might apply if you are in cloud, but actual capabilities may matter a lot more than certs. Cyber has a slew of certs and people tend to have a lot of them and they seem to carry more value than in other niches, probably because it is such a compliance heavy area. In many areas though, you’ll do just fine without any certs whatsoever.

OP, each of these certs are different. PMP’s for people focusing on delivery. AWS (depending on type) is more of a technologist. How do you see yourself?

CSM, AWS and Salesforce certs

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.

What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
