Office poll: How important is Office certification?

Take the TechRepublic Office Blog poll question: How important is Office certification? Add your thoughts on the topic to the accompanying discussion thread.

A couple of years ago, we had a great discussion on Microsoft certification  in the Office area. Just this morning, someone asked me if I thought certification in Office was helpful. I'm wondering how you guys feel about it—three years later. Have any of you recently gone through the process? If you're certified, do you believe it's helped you get a better job? If you're not certified in Office, are you considering it?

By the ways, the links in the 2007 post on Office certification are still valid.
