We became a Microsoft Learning Partner because we have seen first hand the value certification brings to your personal brand and competitiveness in the job market. Microsoft Certifications are globally recognized and have been rapidly expanding their offerings across technology, especially in the cloud arena. 23% of Microsoft certified technologists reported receiving up to a 20% salary increase.
Have you ever submitted a resume online with no response? The reality of the job application process involves Applicant Tracking Software. In fact, over 90% of Fortune 500 Companies use Applicant Tracking Software to filter candidates for open positions. Online applications are a blessing and a curse. For the job applicant, online applications broaden access to jobs and increase speed when applying for a new position. However, for HR or hiring managers, the online application has resulted in receiving over 250 candidate submissions per role. To optimize the resume review process, organizations have turned to resume screening software.
What does this reality mean for you? If you do not have one of the Required Certifications for the role, your resume is never seen by a human being. For security positions, more than 1/3 of Job Postings ask for a Certification. Regardless of your skill level and experience, if the required certification is not on your resume, you are disqualified.
Therefore, whether you’re looking for a higher salary, better work-life balance or something with greater growth potential, CompTIA certifications can help.
CyberSchule is focused on filling the skills gap within the Cybersecurity Industry. Therefore, we offer security focused pathways from Microsoft's Role Based Certifications. In 2018, Microsoft changed their approach to IT certifications from a product knowledge approach to a skills based approach. This change was in a response to a familiar argument where knowledge to pass a certification did not transfer into possessing the skills needed to apply the knowledge in real world scenarios.
Microsoft consulted with industry subject matter experts who are working in the field—both inside and outside of Microsoft—and aligned the new training options and certification experiences with defined roles and skills. The training and certification has been expanded beyond individual technologies to focus on the skills and concepts needed for specific job roles. The inclusion of hands-on training is inspired by working professionals who teach you to apply these learnings in today’s demanding IT environment. With the new role-based certification, your improved productivity and next-level skills help you to become even more valuable to your team and organization.
