How it helps
The I/O-efficient algorithms certification benefits the applicant towards learning about some of the key concepts in I/O algorithms in areas of design techniques and replacement policy. The candidate will gain hands-on familiarity through the practice exercises in I/O algorithms. The programme requires a great degree of eligibility to enroll and complete which makes it a much-sought credential in the industry.
The course instructor Mr. Mark de Berg is one of the well-known experts in the area of data structures and algorithms and the certificate being signed by him acts as a great identifier among the peer circles and job networks. It also makes it a valuable addition to the candidate's resume and also in job networking circles, both online and in person.
The candidate may be able to share the credential with potential recruiters and recruiting professionals who are searching for candidates with particular skills qualifications. The portfolio of the candidate gets well enhanced with the chances of him or her landing in a better job position. The candidate might also be able to negotiate a higher wage or a promotion to the role and will have a significant advantage over his or her colleagues in terms of role advancement or pay hike.
