When you put in the money, time, and effort to get Certified you always want to make sure you get a great return on your investment. It makes sense that being IT Certified translates to more or better work and a higher salary. IBM Certifications help companies confirm your expertise and hopefully help you land your dream job.

Certification Magazine runs an annual Salary Survey to get a pulse on what IT Certifications are most popular, and how Certifications pay off when it comes to career salary. When enough of our own IBM Certification holders take this survey we at IBM Certification are able to make improvements to the program based on the survey results. We are asking that anyone with an IBM Certification take a moment to do this survey and in return help improve the IBM Certification Program.

The CertMag Salary Survey 2018 takes around 15 minutes to complete and has around 60 questions (while you may skip some based on your answers). There is a reward for helping with this survey, you have the opportunity to keep up with IT Certification news all year long with a Free Digital Certification Magazine subscription. If you prefer print you can instead choose a discount of 40% of a 1 year subscription to Certification Magazine.

The Salary Survey will run until November 20th 2017.
