IT certifications boast numerous benefits. They bolster resumes, encourage higher salaries, and assist in job
retention. But which IT certifications are best?
Technology professionals generate much debate over just that question. Many claim vendor-specific programs best
measure a candidate's skills, while others propose vendor-independent exams are the only worthy way of measuring real-
world expertise. Still other observers believe the highest-level accreditations - Microsoft's MCSE or new Architect
Series certification, Cisco's CCIE, etc. - are the only credentials that truly hold value.
We don't fully subscribe to any of those mindsets. The best IT certification for you, after all, is likely to be
different from that for another technology professional with different education, skills, and goals working at a
different company in a different industry. For that reason, when pursuing any professional accreditation, you should give
much thought and care to your education, experience, skills, goals, and desired career path.
Once a career road map is in place, selecting a potential certification path becomes much easier.
