Hello Everyone,

I'm a college student, I attend Casper College in Casper, Wyoming. I have been assigned to research the benefits (if any) of having any post graduation computer certification. Here's what I need from you:

1) If you have a cert that I haven't mentioned, please choose the 'other' option, and then leave me a comment telling me what it is.
2) If you have more then one cert, feel free to take the poll as many times as necessary, but leave me a comment telling me how many times you took it. (or if you don't feel like taking it 50 times, just tell me what else you have)

don't hesitate to leave any comments if you feel they are important.

My certification is for teaching English, and my master's for Language Education. I'm also still looking for work, so my income has not gone up since getting my certification and master's. I might end up a self-employed tutor. I'm pursuing that angle. It will take a while to build up though. However, I don't think this really fits your research project.

I'm a certified Human Resources Technician (i.e. I can officially do data entry) and I'm working on my MCSA.

I have an Associates degree in networking, but I don't really know how it has affected my income level. I moved from one entry-level job to another while in school (call-centers, basic computer repair), and then completely out of the field by the time I graduated. I am now back in (1 year 9 months spent away from IT), and from my last job it will be ~10K/year increase, but the last job was as a delivery driver.
