The Ultimate Guide to IT Certifications - CompTIA Network+
Everything you need to know about the certification and the importance of being certified in the IT world – A comprehensive workshop with Andrew Chichewicz, Cyber Security Engineer & Technology expert.

The Value of IT Certifications
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, it's harder than ever for job candidates to impress their employers. Gaining industry-recognized certifications can help differentiate yourself in a challenging job market.

It's essential for aspiring IT Students, like yourself, to validate your skills and add valuable credentials to your resume.

WHY GET CERTIFIED?
The opportunity for students pursuing an IT career is enormous. In Q2 2014 there were more than 648,000 IT jobs open in the US.
Yet many businesses are struggling with IT hiring due to large skills gaps in the workforce. Employers are disparately seeking skilled IT professionals. Close to 85% of IT job postings currently list certification as a requirement. As a certified individual, you can distinguish yourself with proof that you have the specialized skills employers are seeking.

A COMPETITIVE EDGE
