Professional Benefits
 
NO.1
Differentiate yourself
When you apply for a job, your application won’t be the only one considered. Use certification to differentiate yourself from the competition. A study has shown that 96% of hiring managers use IT certification to screen qualified candidates. Also, many HR managers believe that people with certifications are more competent and faster to adapt to their new job. With proven knowledge and skills, you have a better chance of getting hired than other candidates.
NO.2
Strengthen your resume
According to a survey, over 90% of HR managers indicated that IT certifications play a key role in the hiring process. This is largely because employers perceive certification as one of the critical characteristics of successful employees. Thus, if you have a certification that validates skills that your employers are looking for, it’s a huge plus in your hiring process. You can strengthen your resume by adding relevant certifications in order to increase your chance of getting hired.
NO.3
Receive better compensation
Proven and validated skills often mean that you are compensated better. A study showed that those who have IT certifications earned 15% more than uncertified professionals, and 92% of employers stated that certified IT individuals receive higher starting salaries than those without certification. By earning certifications, you can build better financial stability for you and your family.
