Get the most out of your career:
Professional qualifications play a vital role in your career journey - the more qualified you are, the greater your earning potential and opportunity to negotiate a higher salary or a promotion. According to the PwC Middle East Hopes and Fears survey 2022, some 38% of respondents in the Middle East, said their companies had increased salaries as a retention strategy to retain skilled workers. Retaining skilled talent is a better investment for employers than hiring new ones to address talent shortage. And being certified in your field of work may be the advantage you are looking for to get ahead in your career.
