Hi All,

I have just passed Splunk Certified Power User 6.3 exam. This post is intended to know your opinion on this certification. Anyone who has done this certification or intending to take or using splunk platform on daily basis - can you please throw some light on how this certification is rated according to you?

Is it worth mentioning this certification on my linkedin profile?

Thanks and appreciate your response.

    Daily Splunk user here. I took this maybe 1.5-2 years ago. I have it on my LinkedIn profile and certainly serves to attract recruiters looking for Splunk engineers. Unfortunately most of the time they are looking for Splunk admins/architects which is not what I am. Other than that I don't think it has much value. If you search the job board with this term you will most likely get no more than a handful of hits.

    We throw tons of logs at it from different platforms and develop in-house security intelligence. We leverage it for employee investigations, vulnerability management, incident response, threat intel, and many other cases.

    Congrats! I just passed the Splunk Certified Power User exam yesterday as well. My employer paid for all the training, and I never throw away an opportunity for a cert when it is not on my dime...

    Its the same case with me. it is rather an expensive certification and i didnt wanna throw away the opportunity. i dont use Splunk on daily basis and hence this thread to know how this certification can boost up my resume. should i even mention it as part of my signature or not really required :/

    I don't use it as part of my signature, but I have it listed on my resume and my LinkedIn profile. I actually got a few job offers because of it. With one of them, I basically explained that I got the certification because my company paid for it, but that I don't actually have any real experience with it. Even knowing that, they offered to send me through the Admin level I and II courses during my onboarding and to pay for the certs as well... apparently Splunk is in demand. It would have been a great job, but it would have been way more travel than I would be willing to do (70 - 80% travel).
