Are SolidWorks certifications of any worth?

Dear SolidWorks community,


I hold 6 certifications in Solidworks and have an year of experience as a design engineer. Currently I am pursuing graduate studies and looking for internships. However, I realized my certifications themselves do not make any impression. I have applied to several design jobs and haven't heard back from any of them. Even at the career fair, when I explained my proficiency in design skills, people just listened (did not react much). Though I obtained those certifications for my personal satisfaction, I thought that they would make some positive impact in my future career challenges. Now, I am starting to think they are not really of much worth.


Is there anyone with any positive stories regarding the certifications? If yes, please share your experience on this post.


Thank you very much for your time everyone.
