Virtually all modern employers rely on Information Technology for critical aspects of their business, regardless of the industry they are in. We can help you navigate a transition into the IT field from where you are now; or help you advance your IT career with new skills.
The Information Technology field offers a variety of ways to be your own boss. You can pursue entrepreneurship either full-time or part-time, and on virtually any scale. Whether that means working independently on occasional projects, or running your own business, we can help you get started on whichever path you choose.
Technological advances in the workplace have increased exponentially in recent years, and continue to fuel workers' anxiety over being replaced by machines. Meanwhile, employers express growing concerns about the technology skills gap, and the challenge of finding and recruiting workers with the skills and knowledge required to keep up with these changes. While it is true that by 2025, more than half of all workplace tasks could be automated,
research suggests that twice as many new jobs are likely to be created than were lost in that transition. Training and continuous upskilling are critical to remaining competitive if job seekers want to be the ones to fill these new positions.
