Values and Benefits for MCM Certification
Who besides Microsoft is hiring MCMs nowadays? Big corporations, major service firms, large consulting companies, and development organizations that build tools or add-ons to augment the various Windows Server platforms for which the MCM credential is available (namely, Exchange Server 2010, Lync Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2010, SQL Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 Directory Services). These professionals invariably earn over $100K per year, and some MCMs pull in more than $150K. Add in massive respect from your colleagues and peers, an active and dynamic community of like-minded and similarly–skilled professionals, and job opportunities abounding and you’ve got a pretty potent combination indeed. Kudos to Microsoft for creating a truly remarkable and enviable certification program.
