MCTS Certification (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist)
MCTS certification is a powerful antidote to a lagging CV, one that seems far behind the other employment candidates vying for a job you want. Microsoft MCTS certification is something that nearly 100% of hiring managers say sets candidates apart, and 86% of hiring managers say that it is relevant to their hiring decision.
An IT certification is given a medium to high priority by the majority of hiring managers. Not only does it show that you know what you’re doing, but it shows that you can study for something, demonstrate your knowledge and skills under pressure, and press through to garner a certification. A MCTS exam can be taken with just a little bit of study and a small amount of money invested, and when you have that MCTS title on your CV, it will be well worth the effort you put into it.
MCTS is a broad certification that has 17 sub-level certifications available for it. This lets the owner prove that they are proficient in any of these categories: .NET Framework 2.0 Distribution Applications, Windows Applications, or Web Applications, SQL Server 2005, Windows Mobile 5.0 Applications, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Application Development, and several others.
