Getting started on an IT career right out of high school!
Right after graduation, you can start taking Information Technology training classes, often called “IT boot camps”, and build your IT certification portfolio. There are several local, reputable, free and low-costs programs (such as PerScholas and YearUp) for eligible students who want to learn programming, hardware, software, design, networking, etc. Entry into these high-demand fields will require your hard work, dedication and desire to learn the up-to-date skills employers are seeking. In as little as a few weeks (not months or years!) you can get started on your IT career. With each new certification and specialized skill you learn, your marketability and earning potential will increase! In addition to teaching skills and portfolio development, these programs also have job placement services for their students.
