Before making recommendations about certifications, can we have some context about the hypothetical person receiving our suggestions?
I'd recommend something different to an experienced IT pro than to a…
Security is HUGE right now, anything with SAP, Wordpress, Cisco, and VMware
WIN a certification? you mean I don't have to study? I'd be in for anything and all of the above... HA HA HA
Something related to security or there are some of us who don't have any networking (Cisco) related certifications.
Maybe related to devops or vmware.
I recommend either VMWare if you are server strong or CCNA if you lean toward Networking. I have studied both for certifications but I haven't taken the time to take the tests. I learned in this process that I can't know all there is and to hone in on what I am interested in, which is Networking. So I am now focused on the CCNA to complete before end of Aug 2016 as the certification exam will be changing then. Both certs are very highly coveted and the skill set is sought after. They get looks on resumes. I get asked about both attempts during interviews. I also recommend Wireshare along with the CCNA just to make you stronger, especially if you like security.
