Can you really learn IT in just three to six months?
Absolutely! There are no general education courses that are unrelated to your future IT job. You will learn real-world IT skills that you can immediately start using once you land an IT job. Plus, we provide hands-on labs. The best way to learn technology is to just do it. So you are actually practicing what you learn as you learn it. By the end your three to six months training, you will actually be doing the exact things employers will ask you to do.
How does jobskillshare compare to a 2 or 4 year college?
Jobskillshare focuses exclusively on training you for the job skills required to get started in a technology career. The goal of 2-4 year schools is generally to provide a well-rounded education. That’s why traditional colleges and community colleges require that almost 50% of your classes are in “general education” – which may or may not help you advance your career goals. By teaching only the technology job skills you need, jobskillshare is able to “accelerate” your education time frame and ensure that the technology you are learning is not outdated.
Do you need a degree for an entry-level IT Jobs?
In today’s economy where the demand for skilled IT workers significantly exceeds the supply of qualified candidates, most employers are more interested in whether or not you can do the job than whether you have a degree. According to recent Census data, only 38% of web developers have a four year degree. In a survey of 2400 CIO’s by Robert Half Technology, 71% said they place more emphasis on “skills and experience than on whether or not a candidate attended college/university”. While there are still some companies and some positions that require a degree, the vast majority of job opportunities do not. These opportunities are being filled with individuals with the right technology job skills.
Can I learn all these technologies if I have no IT experience?
Jobskillshare training is designed specifically for individuals with little or no technology experience. In fact, most of our members have no technology experience at all. At the end of completing our learning paths or live training you are a skilled IT professional ready to contribute in your new job.
