Have to Say
Becoming Snowflake certified has helped a lot with my career and personal goals. It has advanced my career at a professional level and has helped me develop a team of engineers. Now, I lead a team of SnowPros who deliver Snowflake client work. It has allowed me to grow in my individual career, but also has helped us develop our own practice as well. We’re representing South Florida and our goal is to continue expanding here in Florida to have a large footprint.
Senior Principal Data Engineer
It was useful to apply my knowledge and demonstrate that I knew what I was talking about with customers. Sharing my achievements on social media has gotten me a lot more social media traffic and I have been contacted more, which is great.
Job candidates who hold the SnowPro Core Certification can pretty much hop, skip, and jump right through the vast majority of our company’s technical interview processes.
Snowflake certification is important because it gives my company external recognition to our clients. For me personally, I find that being certified shows that I not only know the content of the certification, but also have the will to study all the materials, even things that I do not use every day.
After I became certified, I was given more responsibility, (and) allowed to work on more challenging tasks, like architecture-related work. It also helps me to stand out and become an authority to whom others can come for advice and direction.
My solution is to start with the SnowPro Core Certification because that covers basic and fundamental concepts about Snowflake. Once you are more confident in your role, go for an advanced certification. Pursue that role and make sure you have hands-on experience with Snowflake before you attempt the exam. When I started preparing for the certification, I got a lot of hands-on experience and started learning the Snowflake inner workings. A person who is not ready for the certification will say it is terribly difficult. A person who works closely with Snowflake would say the exams are easy.
One thing I absolutely love about Snowflake is that the documentation that is published on the Snowflake docs, as well as the official study guide, is very organized in terms of tutorials, quick start guides, best practices, and considerations to keep in mind whenever Snowflake is being used. I like the fact that the certifications are finite, requiring credential holders to recertify, because new features come to life and become generally available to Snowflake customers. Making sure that we’re tested on those features is essential to ensure that the skill set for Snowflake is up to date.
