“I should have held out for a job that required AWS, but I didn't. Then I got into the loop of "I can't get a job because I don't have the experience, but I can't get experience unless I get a job". Had I gotten a job that required AWS knowledge as soon as I left the position I had, I would be off of that loop. Now, that certificate is 5 years old and it is terribly out of date. What is really ironic is that while I was at Amazon supporting AWS, I didn't actually use AWS because the organization I was working at was responsible for fixing AWS if it broke.”
