"in store for me"? Not really, I don't need that sort of job. Nor company.
Never did, won't start now. Fortunately, for every place that "requires
OCP for an interview", there are hundreds who don't and won't.
Where I work now I'd send a resume emblazoned by "certifications"

Don't get me wrong: I do respect professional accreditation provided by *independent* industry bodies. But one provided - at a price - by a marketing organization or a software/hardware manufacturer? Gotta be kidding!...
