This is another argument for certification in my view. Length of service in any given job is getting shorter across all industries, which makes references something of an out-dated form of guarantee (of course, we all know that it was never that valid to start with for obvious reasons; however, in days of yore a reference was a point of contact that established credibility precisely because they were long-standing employees in responsible positions of credible companies. Now, we're all just temporary hires, more or less. More reason to have certification.

Naturally, that means certification needs to place less emphasis on references, and more on quantifiable skills and portfolio.
