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.
