Which are the potential certifications necessary to get a good IT job in Australia? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am very new to this discussion form, so i will introduce myself first. I had started my career as a .net developer in 2007. Initially, i was working with .net 2.0 , C#, SQL server and WWF. During 6 and half years of experience in 3 different software organizations, i have upgraded skills in various technologies. .net 2.0/3.0/3.5/4.0, SQL server 2005/2008, Oracle 11g, XML, AJAX, JSON, Javascript, TIBCO, Architectural patterns, SSRS etc are my area of expertise. 

    Recently, i got my Australian PR, so i am planning to go there and search for a job. I would like to get your valuable inputs to know, how important are certifications to get a good IT job with my skills in Australia?

    Which are certifications you think is going to make my profile strong and attractive ?

    It will be highly appreciated if you can suggest me what to do now. 

    Thanks,

    Sumesh

    The ones that are currently being demanded by Australian employers.

    The only way that you are going to find that out is to look at Australian job sites to see which skills are currently being demanded by Australian employers.

  • Hi,

    You also asked how important certifications could be when looking for a job. Being certified Always helps and will give you an advantage over candidates that are not certified. The combination of work experience and certification is even better. Your CV is your personal sales brochure and certification will definitely help to make it look good.

  • As trip_to_tokyo says, you need to look for the certifications that are in great demand in Australia. Choose such a certification (more than one is preferred) and achieve it. It should help you.
