Interview question 7: Will obtaining QTP certification improve chances of getting a QA job?

There are many questions and answers among software specialist if any certifications like QuickTest Professional 9.0 Specialist, Borland Certified SilkTest Engineer (BCSTE), Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) or Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP) as an aid to gaining employment in software area. I think the certification definitely open some more doors in your career, but only with experience. No one in our Quality Assurance team owns a HP QTP certification. Our development and Quality Assurance managers have never mentioned certification requirement in any job description and never hired anyone based on a certification. So will having a QuickTest Professional 9.0 Certified Product Consultant help you get hired? Probably, but it perhaps won't matter. I guess it couldn't hurt, just imagine that the manager has to choose among two candidates with the same skill set, but one has QTP 9.0 certification in the resume. Which one you would hire?
