Google IT Support Professional Certificate worth getting?

Is the Google IT Support Professional Certificate worth getting? Or will it be a big waste of time? I recently saw an ad for it after not knowing it existed and I’m unsure if any big name companies acknowledge it.

I’m currently working a dead end job at a big box store in the warehouse, sales and hours are way down. I’ve been in a bad situation since September with no way out.
I’ve always been good with and loved using computers but not smart enough to handle compsci, while job hunting I’ve kept on the look for IT jobs but seemingly every place wants college degrees and years of experience for “entry level work”.

Maybe try looking into getting a job as an installer for your local ISP or try getting a job with a subcontractor that does installs for the ISP. I know some of the ISP subcontractors pay for your schooling.
