New IT job for Certifications or current safe job?

March 13, 2010

My friend asked me recently what i thought about his current situation he works for a state agency in IT and is being headhunted by another state agency. It would be a promotion with a little better pay. The main thing they were offering was paid training which his current agency doesn’t provide. Currently they send one team member to training and they get the certification and come back and teach the rest of the team. I told him i believe he should take this opportunity even if his job is not as secure due to the fact that he would be receiving his Microsoft certifications and Cisco certifications and that would make him more marketable in the future.  I believe in this economy anything you can do to increase your marketability and therefore employability is key to being able to work and get hired in the future what do you all think?
