Yvonne DeGraw mentioned Michele Jackman, who spoke to the Santa
Barbara STC Chapter about "New Attitudes for New Ways of Working":

I like Ms. Jackman's premise, and I love her metaphor. I'm a little
mystified, though, as to why she says what she says about
certification. If job-hopping is becoming the norm (and it is),
couldn't certification be helpful both to job seekers and to
employers? Could you elaborate a little bit, Yvonne?
