Are You Certified Enough?
A recent study from CompTIA shows that employers are more inclined to rely on professional certifications when hiring IT workers, but are challenged by credential evaluation and validation issues. The study suggests that certifications will grow in importance as more tech jobs are created. The survey included nearly 1,700 business, HR, and IT executives in the U.S., the U.K., and South Africa. Highlights of the study include: 64 percent rate IT certifications as having extremely high or high value in validating skills and expertise.
