Probably not with the practitioner. A lot of job postings iv seen list that the preferred candidate will have at least one of the associate certifications so I would start there.

If you can get your company to pay for it, why not? I'm going to take it before the SAA so that I get the feel for the AWS exam style

It doesn't do much for you. Cert takes 10 hrs of studying to get. Even the SAA won't get you more jobs

Doesn’t do a ton for you, but can be a big help for your firm. AWS has different levels of partnership and certain competencies which allow your firm to co-sell with AWS. These levels and competencies all require a number of certs from practitioners at the firm. Long story short, get your firm to pay for it. Free certs are always a good idea. Isn’t gonna hurt your resume.

In a tough spot. Recently joined a company and I regret it. I left consulting for better wlb but I’m now working the same amount. I am interviewing for a role within a university which sounds more easy going. If I leave my current company, I’d have to pay back my sign on bonus (5k). But I just feel so stressed out all the time and was recently diagnosed with depression & had to go on medication (already in therapy). I don’t know what to do. Do I stick it out? Do I continue to interview?

I am having a lots of interviews for a first year association position, but unfortunately any concrete offers.
