Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Certifications by themselves are not going to get you a high salary. It is your ability to do the job and meet employer expectations and requirements. A certification may indicate you have met a certification body’s requirements but that alone will not get you a job. There has to be a fit with an organizations business needs.

So, it depends on where your interests and skills lie. If networking is your interest, then the Cisco series of certifications will be useful. If security is your vocation, look into the ISACA or ISC2 certifications. Cisco also has some security certifications focused on network security. Of course there are also operating system certifications like those from Microsoft or RedHat.

    Here's some info on IT salaries as well as here. Jenny/Michael: TechTarget should consider doing a survey of their own so we can keep the links pointed in the right direction. ;-)
