EXIN Certificate Advice

Continuing your education - following training, passing exams, earning certificates - is the key to better job opportunities and/or a higher salary. In IT the more certificates you have, the better your chances of earning a higher wage: on average, certificates offer a 20% pay boost over a high school diploma. And research has shown that 63% of hiring managers feel that certified professionals are more productive then their non-certified peers and are therefore inclined to hire the job applicant with the certificate. Certification demonstrates your commitment to IT practices. Having certified professionals will boost companies’ credibility within the industry and it will save them money in support costs.
