Hire Certified IT Professionals

Involved in virtually every aspect of business, the role of IT within organizations continues to evolve and expand. When hiring developers, system engineers, help desk and other IT professionals, managers focus their search efforts on three factors — education, experience and certification. Research shows that an overwhelming majority of hiring managers include certification in assessing their IT candidates. It is because of this growing need for knowledgeable IT professionals that ITCC has dedicated itself to promoting the importance of IT certification and the consideration of said certificates throughout the hiring process.
