I can almost guarantee this was told to you by someone who has certifications in English or the Arts. While I mean no disrespect to those, having an IT Certification is worth its weight in gold.
What are the benefits of having IT Certification? The most obvious one is that you will score a job in the IT field. Having IT Certification will give you the advantage over those that don’t have one, and they make your resume look amazing.
Continuing to earn IT Certifications can also mean that you have better job retention and possible promotion.
