New York, NY – July 15, 2010 – Today Microsoft interviewed NetCom President & CEO, Russell Sarder to discover the business impact and real-world perceptions of Microsoft Certifications for organizations and their employees. As a long-time Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and leading Microsoft training provider, NetCom painted an accurate picture of this impact.

In summary, the interview showed that as Microsoft Certifications continue to evolve to more closely align with job roles, the demand for certifications from both individuals and companies is on the rise. The biggest factor behind the increase is that IT Professionals and Managers recognize the practical benefits these credentials offer in terms of organizational productivity and professional resourcefulness.

Sarder notes that feedback from NetCom Educational Consultants regarding Microsoft Certification indicates growing interest. “We used to have to invest a stronger effort to promote certification, but recently, many individuals know they want it and that’s how they start the conversation with us,” he says. He believes there are several reasons for this trend. Human resources managers often tell NetCom that they search for certification credentials when they review resumes on online job boards; without the proper certification, a candidate’s visibility is minimal.
