    Have certifications lost their luster?

    That certification you're working on may not be worth what you think it is. New research suggests employers are less impressed with a long list of certs than they are with real hands-on experience.

    According to new research released last week by New Canaan, Conn.-based IT research consultancy firm Foote Partners, pay for non-certified skilled professionals grew almost five times as much as certified counterparts in the first three months of 2005. Pay for non-certified skilled IT pros grew 2.8% from January through March, while certified workers saw a 0.6% increase during that same time period.
