IT Certifications to Accelerate Your IT Career


In case you’ve checked the Salary Barometer 2018, you’ll be excited to find out that the IT industry presents a rather lucrative career. You might feel anxious to jump in and demand a high salary, but of course — everything depends on your employer. The question is, how can you have the confidence to ask (nicely) for the salary you think you deserve?


You might not be able to get the salary you want overnight, but by taking the right actions — like training to get the certifications below — might be the key to reach your salary goals.
