IMO, they mostly help in understanding the technology and building confidence so you can make contributions at work, and not as much as show-to-employers thing.

I would also checkout www.edx.org. They have dedicated instructors and verified certificates that you can pay for. That makes more sense for to add on your Resume or LinkedIn profile.

But the situation is changing. With the growth of online courses popularity grows also online certificates credibility.
