Allan Hoffman, Monster Tech Jobs Expert

Passing an IT certification test isn’t always easy, but it’s one of the best ways to quantify skills you’ve learned and prove to prospective employers — or even your own boss — that you’re ready to handle a certain job. While the certs don’t guarantee you a job, they can put a candidate’s resume over the top or gain you a decent pay premium over non-certified competitors.

Picking the right certification (and passing the test once you do) isn’t always easy, but we’re here to help. We’ll tell you what you need to know, how to prepare, and which certifications get you the best bang for your buck.
