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)

Minnesota Job And Career Fair 2013

April 18, 2013 the Minnesota Recruiting and Staffing Association is hosting their 4th annual job, career and skills summit and I will once again be one of the speakers.

This will be the 3rd time for me speaking at their event and I am really looking forward to this one as MNRSA is reaching out to our military veterans to help them in their job search process.

To be able to talk with these folks… means a lot to me and I look forward to saying thank you to them.

The event is free to attend and open to all job seekers.

Last year 700+ attended and the feedback was very positive.

I will be speaking from 10:00 am to 11:30 am and doing my “Be Your Own Headhunter” presentation. I will be showing folks how I would be do a job search using LinkedIn, job boards, networking, Twitter and Facebook along with some strategy tips including how to market oneself, when to follow up, finding contact names and more.

It is an aggressive approach or as many have called it either a “wake up call” or a much needed “kick in the pants”.
