The debate over I.T. certifications rages on. Many I.T. professionals maintain that their certifications opened doors and have rewarded them financially in ways they never could have achieved without them. Others suggest that experience and skill, not certifications are the currency of success in I.T. They claim that their best opportunities came only after a proven track-record of performance.
The opinions are as varied as the experiences of the individuals who offer them. But most agree that, especially in the formative years of one’s career when the resume may be short, IT certifications go a long way toward attracting the attention of hiring managers and opening doors to employment. At the very least, most will concede that the certs tell a potential employer that the candidate is sufficiently committed and disciplined to invest the time and money in relevant IT training. That says a lot!
For the career changer, in particular, IT certifications offer a comparatively fast-track to the essential skills I.T. professionals need to perform and compete in the marketplace. The initials behind the name may not guarantee employment or performance, but they certainly can open doors that would otherwise be closed to the I.T. nube.
