It Depends

It Depends

It totally depends on what worth means for you.

If you are thinking that just completing a Computer Science or Data Science course on Coursera and displaying a completion certificate on your resume or on LinkedIn will land you a Job then definitely, it's not worth it. But, at the same time, these certifications can put your resume forward to many Recruiters looking for Data scientists.

A constant learner

A constant learner

A course completion certificate doesn't make you an expert, but it does show that you have completed a course on a particular subject, which means you know about it, and are a constant learner, an essential attribute that hiring managers look out for, while hiring Programmers, Engineers, Developers, and Data Scientists.

Almost 90% of people who start an online course never complete them.

Different Certifications

Different Certifications

You need to remember that a course completion certification is very different from Oracle's Java certification or AWS certification from Amazon, which really tests your skill and then awards your certificate.

The certifications listed above are definitely more valuable than a standard course completion certificate from Udemy, Coursera, edX, Educative, or Udacity.

Coursera or Udacity certificates offered by Google, Microsoft, or Stamford University are much more valuable than a random certificate as these firms enjoy a lot of trust in the public's eye.

Justify those certificates

It's Ok to not put a certification or a course completion proof on your Resume, but If you have evidence, you must be ready to prove that you have acquired them.

For eg: if you say that you completed The Google Cloud Certification on Coursera but don't know what a compute engine, BigQueury or BigTable is, then you are not sincere and you come of as someone who is just concerned about points on a paper instead of learning skill acquisition

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
