In the world of Information Technology there are many different types of certifications many for varies different fields of work. I.E. MCSE, CNE, RHCE, CCNA, CCIE, NETWORK+, A+, SECURITY+ etc. Which one is the most sought after from Certifications like among these listed? I understand it might vary from city to city but nationally, which has the most benefits?
I'd urge you to recast your research in any of several ways. You can visit www.certcities.com and check out their yearly "Top 10 Certs" list. You can also visit www.certmag.com
, and various targeted certification magazines (like www.mcpmag.com for MCPs
for Cisco professionals, and so forth) and read their salary surveys and demands predictions. You're asking me to either summarize or perform an awful lot of research to answer your questions; I hope you don't mind my ducking, and pointing you at more and better sources for such information than I can provide off the top of my head.
While you're looking don't forget to check the various SearchNetworking and other TechTarget surveys as well, too!
