That said, specific mention of CWNP certs in job postings is not an extremely common feature just yet. It does...
come up in job searches on some Internet employment sites, and so forth, but not in extremely large numbers. But since most wireless professionals (and those who hire them) are becoming increasingly aware of these credentials, I don't necessary see them as a "risky investment." But then again, I don't seem them as a "job guarantee," either—but that's hardly the case for the vast majority of certs these days anyway. If you can talk about what you learned, what you know, and what you can do as a consequences of wireless certification, your ability to communicate about such things and to show prospective employers that you understand the value of your skills and knowledge is probably worth more than a certification anyway.
