What certification I should take to advance my career?
Hello, I have been working in SQL Server Database as a developer, designer and administrator, basically do any adhoc job in SQL server DB for the past 21 years, starting from SQL Server 6.5 to SQL Server 2014. I work in 2008 and 2014 right now managing over 150 databases in mutiple servers. Apart from that I have programming language and component skills. I would like get of Jack of all trades and become a master in some and make some real money. What are list of certifications and order of certifications I should take now? I appreciate your respnses in advance.
Given todays scenario, being Jack of all Trades is not a bad idea at all. With your experience, you are in a position where you can don any hat, rather than limiting yourself to just a few things. And I personally don't think that you cannot earn with such a broad skillset. For being a master, If I were you, I would begin by listing down what I would really like to master of all the items that I would normally do. Then search on the [Microsoft database certification list] and see which one fits what I jotted down. If you have any existing certification that has expired, upgrading them should be on top of your mind. :
