If you hold a Microsoft certification and you're in the market for a job in technology, here’s how your digital badge on Acclaim can help: you can unlock access to real-time job data tailored to your skills and certifications, including active job postings, requirements and estimated salaries. If you’ve considered this job data before on Acclaim, give it another look, as we’ve recently optimized the results.*

Acclaim provides real-time job data in partnership with CEB TalentNeuron (formerly Wanted Analytics). The data is sourced and updated 24/7 from more than 25,000 global job boards and corporate career sites, the U.S. Census Bureau, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. You’ll see active job data and job descriptions that are customized to the skills covered in the exam you just passed or the certification you just earned. Watch a short video on the job data.

How does it work? Take a peek at the job data for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate: Windows Server 2016 certification (shown in the first screen below—click to expand).

  • Under Related Jobs, click View Details to see 14,920 current job openings in the U.S. as of this writing, shown also filtered by state and top employer. See second screen below.
  • Under Skills, click a skill like Network Administration to see 4,436 Current Job openings in the U.S. as of this writing.

In either case, click a Job Title (second screen) to see links to individual active job postings—with salary estimates! Job postings are also shown by top locations, top employers, and top related skills. You can also filter the job data by country (Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, the U.K., and the U.S.) and by state. Acclaim plans to add more countries based on demand.
