Quote:
Companies rely on information technology certifications when hiring workers, but have trouble validating and evaluating credentials, according to a survey by CompTIA.

Among the core details from the survey:

* 64 percent of IT hiring managers rate IT certifications as having high value in validating skills.
* 80 percent of human resources manager believe IT certifications will become more important over the next two years.
* 44 percent of hiring IT managers say that verifying a potential worker’s certification is a challenge due to the time required.
* 38 percent say certification verification is a challenge due to the effort required.

Good Read here! (Though, of course you gotta consider they are pulling them from CompTIA!! Sales pitch maybe?)

kind of a vague report..

What kind of certs are we talking about here? I can tell you know that the large financial institution I work for values IT certifications quite highly. Maybe not a A+ cert but perhaps a Cisco CCNA cert.

Verifying Comp TIA certs is a piece of cake. All you do is go to verify.comptia.org and enter the number and bada boom.
