As more organizations embrace digital transformation, cloud skills are increasingly rising to the top of the list for hiring managers. Today’s employers need people who have the expertise to help their organizations capture the benefits of the newest technologies. Acquiring a technical certification is one of the best ways to show you’re prepared for one of these highly specialized roles.
Certification serves as validation of an individual’s capabilities, often opening the door to a new job, promotion, or leadership opportunity. It also helps employers better understand the skillsets of people they’re looking to employ. When it comes to hiring, certification is powerful because it takes away the questions “Can you really deliver?” and “Do you know more than the other candidates?”
