Ask Devex: Are certifications worth the investment?

Devex CrowdHall participants put Devex to the test in this month’s “Ask Devex series.”

Kate Warren, Devex senior director and editor of careers and recruiting, invited development professionals to submit their own pressing questions in this month’s installment of our “Ask Devex” series. Having spent a decade of her career working in development recruitment, Warren knows that navigating a successful development career path can be daunting

Devex members put her knowledge to the test, inquiring how integrators can convey their range of skills, for instance. Warren gave advice on finding rule-of-law jobs and whether certifications are the way for private sector professionals to transition to development.
