CompTIA

IT Drives Our Global Economy
Despite their differences on the surface, virtually every industry today depends on IT. From small, family-run businesses to big corporations, there are IT careers for students in almost every organization around the globe.

It Pays to Be in IT
Besides having low unemployment levels, IT jobs pay well with salaries that are significantly higher than the national average. The outlook is good, too: According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the availability of IT jobs is projected to grow by 17% through 2022.

Stand Out From the Crowd
A CompTIA certification gets you ahead of the crowd immediately: Not only can you count on the skills you earned, you also validate your knowledge. Having a certification in your hand boosts your resume and is an increasingly compelling credential when you’re applying for a job. ​Certified IT respondents are more likely to hold CompTIA certifications than any other.
