    Hey everyone! Curious to hear from those of you who have more than one credential! Please share what encouraged you to obtain more than one
    Thank you!

    So I'm not sure if credentials and certifications are the same thing, but in my high school we're getting the opportunity to receive two certifications by the time we graduate and it's already been beneficial because we're learning early on about how things in work settings work and are more prepared when applying to jobs since we did intern earlier this year.

    Yes, in my high school we are also getting that same opportunity. It's great because it's free and once we graduate we would be able to work in the medical field Jimena!

    My high school specializes in health sciences and healthcare. By the time we graduate, we have two certifications, ranging from CMA to Phlebotomy, etc. I think my high school has a great healthcare school system for students who want to get certified early on and also experience healthcare jobs early in our future careers. My current occupation is as a CMA for a private clinic thanks to my certification offered by my high school.

    In my high school we are able to get two certifications. We are able to get them for free which is great. They take a lot of work but it is worth it.
