    Hey everybody! I have some Apple certification questions that I couldn't find answered or mentioned in other posts and threads, here at MacRumors and elsewhere and decided to make my own post.

    So for my first question, I'm thinking about studying for an ACHDS examination and wondered if I should start right away or wait until Leopard comes out.

    Second, I'm wondering if getting an ACHDS certification will cause me to better find a job related to Mac OS X than without having one in the first place.

    And I guess lastly, if I'm interested in finding work related to Apple products and Mac OS X, what should I be doing. I've already graduated college (but with a degree in English that hasn't proved too useful in the real world) and I wonder if getting certified is a better bet to get jobs than going back to school and getting another degree, since I'm more into software than programing or engineering software.

    And help will be great. Thanks.

    I also posted a thread about certification a little while ago:

    I don't know if it contains anything useful.

    But I'm sure that getting some certifications will help your job prospects.

    I used to work in publishing, and most people there had English-related degrees, and the design teams worked on Macs... perhaps you could find your market there...?

    Hey thanks PCMACUser! Yeah, I hope certifications help my job perspectives. I came into college as a computer science major but ended up as an English major. Being a writer is quite difficult, so I thought why not find work within Macs.
