Microsoft certifications are among the most highly regarded in the IT field, and in a world where more and more people are gaining degrees, certifications can give you an edge. Not only do they validate your skills with a globally-recognized badge of honor, but they also illustrate your commitment to your profession and your willingness to continually enrich your own knowledge.
Not only can certifications mark you out during your job hunt, they can give your pay packet a bump too. Our latest Microsoft Dynamics Salary Survey revealed that 33% of Microsoft professionals enjoyed a pay rise post-certification. Microsoft’s own analysis found that Microsoft certified technologists earn on average 15% more than their non-certified peers. They can also help you climb the professional ladder faster; according to a 2012 Microsoft study, 91% of hiring managers view certifications as an essential part of their criteria when hiring senior staff.
Even if you haven’t yet made your way into the working world, a Microsoft Certification can still be worth getting. Not only will certifications give you an edge when it comes to finding a job after college, but students can get college credit by earning a Microsoft Certification. Microsoft has partnered with the American Council on Education (ACE) to have a number of exams and certifications recognized by partner universities and higher education institutions for college credit.
Rather than having several paths which can be followed to several destinations, with some of Microsoft’s previous paths branching out to include up to five top-level certification options, each of their six new paths has only one terminus each. Most of the rebrands are pretty straightforward (Database becoming Data Management and Analytics, Server being replaced by Cloud Platform and Infrastructure etc.) and all of the new monikers have been chosen to better reflect new developments and functions in their corresponding channels:
Cloud Platform and Infrastructure
Data Management and Analytics
