Salary hike: As you are aware, a strong portfolio with certificates to supplement your tertiary education will put you at a better position to negotiate a higher pay.

Job search advantage: When employers look for potential candidates, you will stand out from your peers The job market is competitive and someone who shows they are proactively upgrading their skillsets will definitely get more attractive job opportunities.

Professional growth: Career advancement comes when you show the zeal to learn more and better contribute to the organisation. Think long-term and plan out the courses you can attend to support your professional growth.

During the pandemic, many organisations failed to quickly adapt to the situation and digitalise their processes partly due to a lack of upskilled individuals in their organisation who are familiar with the latest technology. This skills gap is motivating them to encourage their workers to go for further training, while they also look out to employ skilled professionals to drive their business.  If you possess the right skills, you can easily fit a vacant position and negotiate for a good salary package.
