These certifications are consistently topping the lists of most in-demand skills in job specs.
Entry Level Certifications
Best geared for someone starting an IT career or considering a career change, these certifications are a great way to organise one’s understanding of a particular field in the IT industry.
If you see any of the following certifications on someone’s resume you can be sure the candidate possesses the necessary level of knowledge and skills to provide support and to actively learn and progress in most of the junior and mid-level IT roles.
Professional Level Certifications
For those taking the next few steps in their IT career, these certificates are an excellent choice to broaden the understanding of how and why many complex processes work in modern IT organisations.
These certificates will likely indicate a professional’s drive and readiness to explore roles and responsibilities outside of the career path chosen to date: systems administrators and software developers obtain cloud architecture skills; IT architects improve their security and infrastructure knowledge; many professionals with existing cloud skills simply explore offerings on an additional cloud provider.
Advanced Level Certifications
These expert level certifications are notoriously hard to achieve, but they’re also the ones guaranteeing their holder will likely have no problem working with even the hardest technical problems in your environment.
Getting to this level of certification means having years of hands-on skills and multiple lower level exams successfully passed – so having of these on a candidate CV is a very positive sign.
