How many certs do you need to get hired in cloud? In one sense, that's the wrong question to ask - hiring managers don't evaluate you solely based on certs, but on your hands-on experience and aptitude as well. In this episode of "Dear Gurus", AWS Serverless Hero and ACG Senior Manager Forrest Brazeal breaks down the ways certs can help or hurt you and the skill stack you need to stand out in the crowd and land that first job as a highly-paid cloud engineer.

*Correction* The AZ103 cert mentioned at 4:54 was retired in August and it's now AZ104.
