What Can You Do with a Certification?

4/4/2017 1:53:45 PM

The importance of education is widely recognized, however, with how expensive it can get and the time that it requires, not everyone is able to earn the degree that they would like to. Many are able to find jobs to support themselves, but have a difficult time finding careers that they actually love.

Are you ready to make a life change and get into a career that you enjoy? If you don’t have the time or money to invest in a degree, there are other options that you can take advantage of in order to get ahead.

Certification programs are a shorter and potentially more affordable alternative to degree programs and may give you a leg up when working towards getting into your desired career. When considering certification programs, however, keep in mind that not all certification programs are the same.

Finding the Right Certification for You

When considering certifications, check the field and industry you are interested in going into. See what requirements most employers have and what kind of education and knowledge applicants are expected to possess. Once you’ve collected enough information, research the certifications available in your desired field.

When choosing a certification program, be sure to choose one that will bring value to you as an individual as well as any potential employer. Programs that simply require a payment to take a proficiency test will not likely impress a potential future boss. Find programs that actually teach you and help you apply what you learn and then verify your proficiency.
