When it comes to changing jobs or improving the conditions of our current position, especially if it is related to programming, application development, computer engineering and technology in general, one of the best options we have at our disposal is to obtain a certification from Microsoft, a certification that will open many doors for us and we will be able to demand a salary according to our knowledge.
Employees who have a certification earn an average of 15% more than employees who do not, since they allow immediate proof of professional worth. In addition, companies seeking employees in this field prioritize people with these types of certificates and have a much better chance of moving up quickly.
With data in hand, 72% of technology companies consider it a requirement to have an IT certification to apply for certain jobs. 91% of hiring managers consider this type of certification in the first place to rule out candidates for a position. 65% of companies in the IT sector classify employees and candidates whether or not they have an official certification. If we talk about money, having an IT certificate, whether from Microsoft or any other company, can mean up to 16,000 euros more per year compared to other employees performing the same tasks.
