Harness the Power of a Professional Credential

February 28, 2016


In today's increasingly complex job market, credentials are highly valued by employers. Becoming certified can mean the difference between a job offer, a raise, a promotion—or falling far behind your peers. Certification proves to higher-ups that you’re a leader and a valuable resource they can rely on. It’s evidence of your commitment to your job as well as to the admin profession.


Still, you may be asking yourself: Is certification right for me? If you’re not sure, take a look at the questions below:

  • Does your organization require you to keep your skills current?
  • Do you take pride in being the best at what you do?
  • Do you want to separate yourself from the crowd?   
  • Are you considering asking for a raise and want to make the most favorable impression?
  • Are you ready to commit to ongoing professional development?

If you answered “yes” to even one of these questions—certification is a wise choice!

Certification is an investment in yourself and your long-term career. It represents a high level of achievement and demonstrates a remarkable wellspring of expertise. Additionally, certification reflects a deep personal commitment to your work and your organization, inspiring credibility and confidence in your professional competence.


Certification will allow you to:

  • Keep your skills and knowledge cutting-edge
  • Stand out from your peers while setting the bar high for others in your organization
  • Show initiative and command respect
  • Improve your earning potential
  • Open doors to greater opportunities for career advancement  
  • Reach your short-term job goals and position yourself for long-term success  
  • Stay marketable in the event of cutbacks, slowdowns or mergers
  • Achieve  personal satisfaction by mastering new material
