Most Wanted Certifications — What's on the List?


Is your next cert on the list of Most Wanted credentials?One of the often underrated outputs of the annual Salary Survey conducted by our friends at Certification Magazine is the list of Most Wanted Certifications. The Salary Survey 75 list that attaches average annual incomes to big-name IT credentials gets all of the attention, but there's nearly equal intrigue — as well as fodder for water cooler conversation — to be found in the list of 50 Most Wanted Certifications. As noted in the introductory heading for the list, nearly 80 percent of Salary Survey participants intend to get a certification in the coming year.
