to the pervasive effect of networking technologies and infrastructure,
all over the world in different spheres of life, there is steady and
increasing demand for skilled network professionals. Networking spans a
wide expertise range and network certifications, such as CCNA, CCENT,
Network+, MCP/MCSE , aim to
equip individuals with the skills needed to build successful careers in
networking. For many candidates the focus is usually on new job and
business opportunities, recognition and better compensation.
While it is true that certifications give individuals the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents, there must be realistic expectations. Achieving a certification is a sign of initiative - it differentiates you from the competition and is recognized by clients and employers. However, though certifications like other educational programs may confer advantage they do not guarantee anything.
GETTING OPPORTUNITIES ALSO DEPENDS ON YOUR CONTRIBUTION, ATTITUDE, EXPERIENCE AND MARKETING SKILLS. Candidates need to bear this in mind at all times. Certifications are NOT guarantees or "quick-fix", shortcut career solutions. As you take advantage of certification, make sure you have realistic expectations and know how the certification fits into your career plan.

How relevant is this new certification? Thanks also for the expectations/career advise.
DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!
Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.
Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.
You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.
But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.
"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.
Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.
GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.
What is the use of ideas without action?
Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.
MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
