Hi Prajakta, Welcome to LQ.
You are continuing your masters and you dont have job experience yet. So in future if you are planning to make your career using linux(A superuser/any admin(linux/unix/db/network/)/development/tetsing/research/,etc..), you need to have the skillset ready for it. Taking the training and/OR exam will give you a deep understanding and make your skill competitive in job market. Because you know lots of companies hire freshers and give them training first for 6-12 months. So with those particular skillsets you will stand ahead them.
Its not like that with certification guarantee a job, but you will be given preference if a linux related job is there.
But you need to practice dedicatedly for it.
