Gaining a certificate, diploma, or graduate certificate in the area of computers and IT is one of the quickest ways to boost your career. Extra credentialing beyond an associate or bachelor degree can give you the expertise in a precise area of computers that will give you an advantage. Some IT positions are available for someone with only an IT certification, and getting that certificate can be a way to explore broader information-technology subjects before deciding on a specialization. Use that as a gateway to a more intensive certificate or degree program down the road.
