DO YOU WONDER IF A CAREER IN TECHNOLOGY IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

 

The Information Technology (IT) field is broad and changes fast, not to mention the fact that so much of the work occurs behind the scenes, which means many adults and students have no idea that a career in technology might be a viable option.

2020 MAXX Potential (https://maxxpotential.com/) will be hosting an Online Career Workshop.

This Career Lab is specifically designed to give participants at all levels a feel for what different careers in technology are like, as well as point them to resources and techniques for continued learning on their own. Career Lab is the first step toward a paid apprenticeship. It’s free and open to the public. Career Lab is meant to give you a feel for what different careers in technology look like, as well as pointing you to several resources and techniques for getting started. During Career Lab you can expect to work through some hands-on problem solving and meet several technology-minded members of your community. Interested participants will be encouraged to apply for an Apprenticeship program.

It’s a fun, interactive series of hands-on activities that are proven to spark interest in the technology field, which is a trajectory-changing path toward a prosperous future. All participants will leave with valuable new skills and more robust mental models in high-demand fields such as software development and cybersecurity.
