Professional security certifications, why do you have to do? 

Hari is working as a Security Manager in MNC for a decade now. He started his career with many aspirations to climb the corporate ladder. Much to his shocking even after spending a decade in the reputed organization, he did not see much growth in his career. 

He is a hardworking, dedicated guy but could not grow in his career. Frustrated with his career growth, he decided to switch to other organizations. When he started applying for the jobs, he realized that he is unable to get enough interview calls or job offers. 

Not being a fresher, this was devastating for him as he had a decade of experience. Why is the HR team not considering the years he put in to gain the experience, he always wondered?

If you are worrying like Hari, wondering why your experience is not helping you to get your dream job, here is what you are missing on the job market.

We never had a chance to do what we learned in college. But the biggest mistake is to stop learning once you start working. This is what many professionals do.

The key to your success is your learning when you are actually working. That’s is where the professional certifications make all the difference.

Also, note the professional certifications are different from your university degrees or certificates. All professional certifications have a process that requires that certified professional should main continual professional education (CPE) so that he remains relevant from the time he or she got certified. 

On the other hand, a degree or certificate is a one-time course or training that the candidate completes and is never required to be up to date with CPE. There is a huge difference between a degree/certificate and certification.

Better late than to be sorry; start your professional certifications journey from today. Do it before your colleagues wake up.
