6. What kind of advice do you have for your peers and colleagues about earning a certification?
Certification is very crucial because it defines an industry standard, a commitment to a level of knowledge and learning that can be relied upon. Like a professional license, certification offers structured and reliable evidence of skills. Through certification you can show current and prospective employers what you’ve really got to offer. Saying so is one thing, but proving it is enitrely another.
As this epigram from Microsoft notes: “GREAT IT PROFESSIONALS AREN’T BORN, THEY’RE CERTIFIED”
