"Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will." ~Vernon Howard  
  
Ah, the illustrious words every parent daydreams of after three long summer months...Back To School!  There are a lot of great things about school, and learning new things is a hope of every parent for their child. 
  
Like parents, it is also a hope that many companies have for their employees and consultants.  Technology is constantly evolving and it is imperative for IT professionals to keep abreast of the enhancements and never stop educating themselves.  Certifications are a great way to show one's passion for technology, and shows employers that you are serious about technology as a career.  Not only is it a form of continuous education, but it really helps set you apart in today's hot market.  
  
At ITC, we are always looking to support technology professionals, from entry to executive level, advance their careers.  If you have any questions on what certifications are "hot" right now, please ask a member of the ITC family, and we will gladly help point you in the right direction.  
  
We look forward to helping you secure your next opportunity.  Thank you for your support and enjoy the final days of summer!
  
Sincerely,
Nicole McMackin
