windows 8

Last Modified: 2014-05-02
I have a question about being windows certified. It is NOT about the questions. I just want to see from other people’s experience, has having a certificate helped with getting jobs?
So for instance, in your opinion and or experience, if I have a certificate through Microsoft for windows 7, would that be better than having a certificate for windows 8?
It seems to me that a business probably won't adopt windows 8, but would prefer to use windows 7. So if I want to get a job with a company I should go for a win7 cert. but if I want to be a geek squad person, I would probably want a win8 cert.
Also, how about things like network +? Has anyone got that cert? And if so, has it seemed to help “open doors” to jobs?
