Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
Over the past few years, it seems like all we hear about is the economy and how hard it is to find a job out there. While mobile app development continues to be a growing field in harsh economic times, more than ever employers are scrutinizing every hire. For mobile app developers looking for a way to separate themselves from the crowd, there is no better way to do it than to get a certified. The MDICD credential, issued by the Mobile Development Institute and tested by On the GoWARE, is a nationally recognized mobile app developer certification made to provide employers with proof of application development skills.
Being an MDICD certified mobile app developer is enough in itself to open doors and distinguish its bearer from other mobile app developers. Unlike other tests that require developers to regurgitate information in written form, the MDICD test is a practical exam that proves without a doubt that those who pass the exam are adept in mobile app development.
In order to take the test, enrollees must have a mobile app that has already been published in an app store. One of the many benefits of the MDICD is its convenience. Since the test revolves around an app that has previously been published there is no need for experienced app developers to waste their money on hours of expensive and redundant classes. In fact, the MDICD certification is one of the most convenient and least expensive IT industry certification exams available as long as you know what you are doing. The certification exam can be taken virtually anywhere as it is given remotely. During the test, a proctor views the candidate’s screen online, who is asked to retrieve a previously published app then perform a number of tasks to test your app development aptitude. Once they have successfully completed their tasks they receive the MDICD certification and the chance to be enrolled in the Mobile Developer Network (MDN) database.
The MDN is a free service provided by On the GoWARE that is meant only for developers. The database was created both to help certified mobile app developers find ideal jobs for them as well as for employers to find mobile app developers that meet their needs. Recruiters frequently call upon On The GoWARE for access to the MDN database when looking for qualified mobile developers for the companies that they represent.
To be entered into the Mobile Developer Network, a developer must first be certified. The MDN allows developers to fill out pertinent information including fields like experience and work preferences (such as work on-site or remotely, contract versus full time employment), and the ability to showcase their published apps. This information is stored in the database and makes it easy for On the GoWARE and their partners to match candidates with tailor-fitted job opportunities and vice-versa.
Passing the MDICD exam is far more than just a certification; it is a gateway into a higher echelon of job prospects. For an experienced mobile app developer, there is really no better way to boost their career than to receive a certification that is recognized all over the country as valid proof and industry-leading. Finding a job in the mobile app development industry can be competitive, but finding the perfect job can be easy for those with the right credentials.
