What’s More Important? A Certification or Experience?

Eagle’s founder, Kevin Dee, recently had the opportunity to participate on a panel in a webinar hosted by CPA4IT. The event, titled The Future of Work for Independent Contracting Webinar, set out to discuss how Canadian IT contractors can survive and thrive in this time and what practical tips that they can utilize to achieve success at work as an Independent Contractor.

An age-old question was asked to the panel: What’s more important — Experience or Certifications? Kevin Dee shared an adage that was passed around at one of his previous companies — “If you do the same job for five years, do you have five years’ experience or one year’s experience five times?” See the full discussion in the video below.

Eagle’s CEO, Janis Grantham, is joining the panel for the next webinar hosted by CPA4IT on Thursday, October 22nd. They’ll be building on the previous discussion and answering questions about the future of work for independent contracting in Canada. Click here to register today.
