6 hottest IT certifications

IT professionals have always sought out certifications to give them a leg up in their career advancement efforts. But anecdotal evidence suggests that in today's job market, having a broad array of certifications is even more important for giving job-seekers a needed edge.

According to Dice.com, the IT unemployment rate is lower than the national average, at 3.6%, and the number of job postings is up 3% from a year ago. In this still relatively tight job market, employers are taking their time when it comes to hiring. "They're looking for the biggest bang for their buck," says John Reed, executive director at Robert Half Technology. "If you can afford to be selective and take your time, you are in a position to find that ideal candidate."
