Benefits of Certification:
The reality we face as we chart the course of our career is that we cannot see over the horizon. We can make informed
decisions based on what we know today and hope that these career choices will adequately prepare us for whatever
conditions lie ahead, fair weather or foul. The intrinsic value of certification-and managing that value-can help ensure a
successful career voyage.
Certification assists us in making important connections in a career. We see an ad for a job opening. The ad specifies
certifications we hold or describes skills contained in our certifications. We make the connection that there is a possibility of
filling that job. We make connections with headhunters in the same way. We use the credibility of certification to connect
with business opportunities. Certifications, in other words, intrinsically provide the link between where you are and where
you want to go.
