Most In Demand IT Certifications - March 2013

WantedAnalytics analyzed 800,000+ jobs in March 2013 and came up with a list of the Most In-Demand Certifications for Tech Jobs.

What I really want to know… what is the percentage of jobs asking for them and what is the trend?

Here in Minneapolis I am seeing less requests for certifications. That may be because I am working with more start up and tech small tech companies than I did in the past.

The req’s my colleagues send from large/enterprise companies (to see if I can lend a hand) seem to have fewer of these being asked for than a year ago.


Here is the list:

  1. Project Management Professional (PMP)
  2. Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
  3. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA)
  4. Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE)
  5. Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP)
  6. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
  7. Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE)
  8. Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
  9. DoD 8570 Certification
  10. Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)
  11. Certified Information Security Manager (CISM)
  12. ITIL Foundation certification (v3)
  13. Certified Scrum Coach
  14. IBM Rational Unified Process Certification (RUP)
  15. Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA)
