You spent the last 12, 16, or more years in school. You have invested a lot of hard work. You have an interest in the technology field. Whether you have applied to colleges, or have just completed your college career — you have some important questions about what you can do to get a good job, today.
As an individual looking to start a fresh career, you have some big decisions to make — and several uncertainties to consider.
If you are a high school graduate, you might question whether the college choice will yield the same results as you once thought.
- Do I go to college as planned?
- What if colleges don’t re-open in the fall?
- What if they open, but all classes are online?
- What will my return on investment be for all of that college tuition?
- Should I stay closer to home for now?
- Are there any other, more immediate career options?
As a college graduate, you might question whether or not your degree will carry the same weight as you once thought.
- How do I start my career in a job market that has dramatically shifted?
- Should I consider temp work?
- What will my return on investment be for all that college tuition?
- Will my major be applicable in today’s business climate?
- How will I replay my college loans and afford my household expenses when I can’t find a job?
- Are there any alternative, immediate career options?
Consider this: An IT apprenticeship is a good way to spend a gap year or post graduate year. And it offers an immediate return for today, and beyond.
What can you have if you decide to pursue an IT apprenticeship?
We have answers to all of these questions for today’s high school and college grads.
- You can have a full-time, W-2 paid apprenticeship position in the lucrative IT industry as a help desk technician with a company that is close to home. This is NOT an internship.
- You can see if an IT career is the right fit for you with a one-year apprenticeship program before you consider investing the $100K+ expense on a four-year degree. Or, you can begin working to pay off your current loans while determining if an IT career is right for you.
- You can embark on an apprenticeship that leads to a long-term career path 94 percent of the time (as opposed to most college grads who jump jobs multiple times before they are 26).
- You can receive three Industry recognized certifications (Microsoft or CompTIA) in the one year program with documented IT skills that make you more valuable — all at no personal expense.
- You can have a personal Success Coach work with you every week to ensure you are on the right track — and that includes developing your professional skills as a complement to your technical skills.
- You can earn up to three pay raises in the first year on the job.
- You can work a typical 40-hour week and attend online training during working hours with no night classes.
You could spend the next few years going to college. You could spend the next year waiting to figure out how to market your degree. Or, you can take another track and jump right into a lucrative IT career as a Digital IT Apprentice. Apprenticeship is a great way to crack a hidden, in-demand job market and jump-start a full-time career.
Now might be the right time to earn while you learn in an apprenticeship. Determine if an IT career is your best destination.
