I started late in life in the computer field. I failed to obtain my A+ certification in college so finding a job has taken years. I have applied and applied to various computer jobs throughout the years. Barely any callbacks and interviews. Finally, this past year, an employment agency contacted me for a Call Center 2 month contract. I saw this as an opportunity to get my foot in the door so I accepted it. Then they found me a PC Refresh project for 2 months for big hospital business. I helped image laptops and desktops. I also added the software that needed to be on each computer. I also deployed several computers throughout the building. Once that contract ended, they again found me another PC Refresh job but this time with a national company. I have learned so much including Active Directory, remote control viewer, ODBC settings, Kiosk machines, Static IP Addresses, IP addressing, Software installation, Office 365, Using LAPS, and changing information in the BIOS. I also had to install and remove the memory and hard drives.
I had been searching on YouTube for some computer information in my studies when I stumbled on to Jobskillshare and been hooked on watching the videos and learning more about everything that is IT related ever since. I wish I had known about this site sooner then just within the last 6 months.

What IT course should I take first?
Do you have a step by step complete learning path?
Yes, check this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2QgIoBZSuc&t=181s
Do you offer LIVE Training?
Do you have more career-related videos or vlogs?
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 of your three to six months of 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. I explained how our certification will help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ2fffctK-s
Do you need a degree to land an IT Job?
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.
