Information Technology (IT) is consistently ranked as one of our “high growth-high demand” industry sectors for the Atlanta region, and IT skills are needed for success in most every career pathway.
IT certifications can open many doors for jobseekers searching for their next opportunity. Employers want candidates with up-to-date knowledge and IT certifications quickly show them a person’s mastery of a particular technology or practice–from help desk basics to mastery of complex cloud environments.
As career advisors, workforce planners, and training providers, it is important we understand certification requirements and employer workforce pipeline needs. In this session, we’ll dive into all things IT career-related and discuss:
• Current and projected employer demand for IT certifications
• Top certifications for jobseekers and what it takes to earn them
• Stackable IT credentials to support career pathways
• Assessing customer/student suitability for IT training
