Totally untrue. Earning a certification does not guarantee you a job, even more so in the security field, where actual experience has far more value.

I respectfully disagree with JoJo. Let your resume have experience with a Siem such as Arcsight or LogRythm, IPS/IDS experience of Snort or Tipping point, Web proxy experience of Bluecoat or Websense and these recruiters/companies will be beating down your door. Trust me on that, I have more than enough offers in a week than I care to sift through.

Emails from recruiters (internal and external) don't mean anything. I had the same thing. At the end of last year and beginning of this year I had so many contacts coming in I couldn't keep track of them and had to get a notebook and log every incoming contact, as well as phone call or email I made, just to keep up with them. However getting in front of the hiring manager and the technical team when they are looking for specific skills is another thing. Like I said in my post, it's what I've found. Doesn't mean it's true for every person and in every market. Just my experience, as well as others that I know in the profession. And my statement still stands true, having experience in one thing, doesn't mean you can get a job doing something else.

With regards to finding a job, certifications on your resume may get you a first round interview but nothing else. Once your butt is in the interviewee chair it's only your ability to successfully present your problem-solving knowledge and team-compatible personality that matter.
