If you have a bunch of certifications and not very much experience first thing people are probably going to think is you dumped them. If you have a lot of certifications that match up to your experience then I don't see it being a negative.

Don't these hiring manager or recruiters test your knowledge on the position you are applying for and shouldn't that be their concern or is it something unprofessional for a tech?

I have heard this from a few hiring managers. "With that many certs, how does that person have time to get any work done?"

For example, if someone has a plethora of entry level certs (CompTIAs, CCNA, MCSA, etc) but no experience, I don't hold it against them since they're entry-level and seeking an entry-level job. It's usually when someone shows up with every intermediate or dumpable exam without the normal experience to go along with it. It's pretty fishy when someone says that they have the CCNP R&S, Voice, Security, Data Center, and Service Provider with little or no experience.

I wonder ... would I fall into the "that many" pile? I have seen people with tons more than I have, so I really hope not. I want to make sure to get a quantified response, before I go too far explaining the process of using personal time and personal funds to seek self-improvement.

As per the title with experience is there such thing as too many certificates?
