Please advice on the most wanted IT cerification in demand in sg and the highly paid IT certification in singapore?
Well, I guess lots of people are still looking and pursuing at the common "reputation".
That includes certifications.
If you had spent lots of time in the IT world,
(IT itself should be different compared to computer science, according to ACM, but I don't know whether it's different according to other people)
then you will realize that what matters is how you solve the problem at hand ?
In the case of software engineering,
If you can solve a problem in Python, then be it, if you can solve it in Ruby, great, or maybe you prefer to use Java, C, or anything else.
In the case of OS,
If you like Linux, and you think that's good, then go for it, if you prefer the others, because you like it, then go for that.
This is also the case with Cisco, Juniper, Oracle, Sun, Microsoft, or SAP which has produced their own technology, and they had produced certifications for those who needs it.
But most people, they would look at "which technology has certifications, and big company support ?" Not because they think that they could really "do something" with it.
Then, they expect by possessing certain certifications, their life is safe, their career is safe, and employers will flock to them or something like that.
Well, in reality, by depending on your certs, you will only be an instrument of a technology or a company, you won't be progressing anywhere, unless you really think that you can make something out of it
The best way to get a high paying job, or expecting a job demand by an employer in this field is by researching at what kind of technologies and infrastructure that they are using, and see whether you like it and contribute within it.
But in my opinion, it's a lot better if you can develop your own skillsets and expertise, and try to look on which areas that are still not quite done right, and apply what you have to that areas. Why reinvent the wheel or adding more headcounts to an already dense and populated area ? Though, the effort on this, would be a bit harder, than following the flow.
