"My salary has been increased by 15%"
"I have recently taken the Brainbench Unix Administration (Solaris 8) and Unix Administration (HP). My annual appraisal has just been made and my salary has been increased by 15%! Many thanks."
"I received 15 phone calls for interviews in 2 weeks"
"A month after subscribing I hold a very comfortable position as the Director of IT"
"I was a graphic designer for years and wanted to move into web development. I held a job for 2 years as a programmer and was laid off. I submitted my resume for months trying to get a similar position but was still pigeon holed as a graphic designer. I subscribed to your service and began taking the tests. After 9 tests and 2 BCIP's (all taken over a few weeks) I began to get more serious inquiries for the types of positions I was interested in. I am happy to say that in a little more than a month from subscribing I hold a very comfortable position as the Director of IT for a very good
company. This comes after 5 months of unemployment. I feel truly blessed. Thank you Brainbench!"
"I just got hired as the Director of Computer Technology"
"I received the majority of my certifications while I had down time at work. I just got hired as the Director of Computer Technology thanks to the certifications I received from Brainbench."
"Valuable and unstoppable tool in my career advancement...$20,000 a year increase in salary"
"Brainbench certifications are not just useful to give a leg up to those who are in the computer industry. My career is in the tourism industry, and just this past week I was named Executive Director of Howard County Tourism Council in Howard County, Maryland. I do not have my college degree. I'm working on it, but I have not completed it yet. The Brainbench certifications showed though, that in many areas, I am already very well-qualified. The Brainbench certifications, combined with my experience, have proven to be a valuable and unstoppable tool in my career advancement! The $20,000 a year increase in salary is nice, too!"
"The deciding factor in hiring me for my current position"
"The results of my tests on Brainbench were the deciding factor in hiring me for my current position! What a great way to quantify knowledge!"
"Defining my skill set was a determining factor in my job search success"
"I recently made a career change from sales to networking/IT. Although I always had a high aptitude, I had no experience or training. I started a class for the MCSE, but had a hard time finding a job. I started taking Brainbench Certification tests, and adding them to my resume to demonstrate my skill set. I actually got a job as a network support/technician before I finished my MCSE. I was able to show my proficiency with NT 4.0, Office products, and so forth. I feel that defining my skill set with Brainbench Certification tests was a determining factor in my job search success. I recommend Brainbench to my employer and to all my friends."
"I am strongly encouraging my students to visit Brainbench"
"I am a Training Director for a leading national software training company. Whenever I teach classes, I am strongly encouraging my students to visit Brainbench to test their skills. This helps them because it gives them job recognition, or they can put it on their resume. It helps me because it is validation of how effective our training is - and proves that we deliver quality classes on 'real-world' topics. Most people are surprised to see how tough these Brainbench tests are. They are not exactly a walk in the
park, so they are very proud to pass the tests. It boosts their confidence levels, which makes my training all the more effective and generates repeat customers. I have had several students thank me repeatedly for pointing them in the Brainbench path."
"My friend showed him his Brainbench certificate [and] finally got his H1 visa"
"My close friend visited the U.S. Embassy for an H1 visa interview. He mentioned and attached the Microsoft certificate for InterDev; however, the interviewer put that aside and didn't pay much attention to it. My friend then showed him his Brainbench certificate for Active Server Pages, he accepted that certificate and the score my friend received, and my friend finally got his H1 visa."
"Now I have something to show my clients and my workload has boosted"
"I taught myself everything I know and as such, I take great pride in myself. But there was one problem...I didn't go to University so I never had a way to tell prospective clients that I knew what I was talking about. That was until I came across Brainbench. I decided to give it a go, I had nothing to lose. So I took the test. Now I have something to show my clients and my workload has boosted a little, just for having the certificates."
