10 TIPS FOR MAKING A CAREER
CHOICE IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
Information Technology Certification is a growing trend that can't be
ignored by anyone that has an interest in the information technology industry. It is a
popular route for starting information technology careers. The seminar looks at three
specific certifications (A+, Network+ and CCNA). Certification is
popular but some fail and others pass. Why?
Start by understanding What Certification can do and What you need to do for yourself:
IT certification is a career tool that can't be ignored by anyone who has an interest in the IT industry.
But how you assess certification is dependent on the quality of information you have about what certification is and what it can do.
You can't get the best of out certification with "Half knowledge", unrealistic expectations and a poor career focus. In view of huge amount of feedback we receive on certification there is a need for more careful and wise decision making in order to stop wasting resources and effort.
Certification is not a cure-all and is not the only tool for advancing an IT Career. You need to know how IT careers are built and how to use effective career growth methods.
Knowing all the different career tools and getting certified from "cover to cover" will not get you anywhere without the right approach.
"Paper" certification has no value. Certification arose from the need to have competent professionals that could deliver value in specific IT areas in the workplace. You cannot give what you don't have.
The question: "what is the best certification?" is of no relevance. The questions should be: "Is certification for me?" "If certification is for me, which certification (s) do I need to achieve my career goals? How should I achieve chosen certifications?"

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.
