Hi, ranchers,
what I would like to know is the market value of XML exam.
Did it help anyone to find a job or to find a better job?
As I see from the job postings, it is often implied that you know XML, just a complementary requirement. Never seen xml to be among the key reqs.

Best Regards,<br />Serge

i dont know but one thing for sure only the IBM XML cert alone won't increase any value at all u need it in combination with other certs to have a total effect
