What do you do now that you're certified?

Insights on what to do when you're "done".

After you’ve successfully completed your ACA certification, what should you do?Here are a couple of tips:

1. Get your acclaim badge & post your pass.

If you have social media, LinkedIn, or an email, you can add your Acclaim badge to your signature or profile. This is a way to showcase what you’ve accomplished to potential employers. Make sure you tag Brain Buffet and say you got #certifiedwithBB!

2. Start building a portfolio.

A portfolio is a way to show future employers your capabilities. We recommend Behance.

3. Work towards a Specialist certification.

Once you’ve completed a program, the second level is the¬†ACA Specialist¬†certifications:
-ADOBE CERTIFIED ASSOCIATE VISUAL DESIGN SPECIALIST: Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign
-ADOBE CERTIFIED ASSOCIATE WEB DESIGN SPECIALIST: Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash
(Video doesn’t have a specialist yet, but we suspect it will be Photoshop, Premiere, and AfterEffects if that exam gets built.)
