Programming Certificates


#1

Hi, Paul!

There are some types of certificates exist, I can obtain to
prove my programming skills (for Java, C# etc.).

For instance, “Microsoft Certified Professional”, which can
be obtained by passing this test:

Does such certificate give any benefits while applying for a
developer job in Japan?

Within my world, primarily web/mobile startups in Japan, certificates aren’t seen as valuable. However, I think they are aimed at enterprise companies in the first place, so they may think differently about them.
