Can you explain this further? When I was first thinking about changing
careers 3 years ago, I would have been grateful to have a test to
pass. Instead, I had to work on a lot of fronts, excluding writing,
and it took over a year and a half to find a job. I think
certification would have made the process of changing careers a lot
easier and a lot more focused.
