It seems many working Americans feel like it’s time for a change—a career change. After two years in which the pandemic rapidly and radically transformed the world of work, 59% of middle-income workers said they’re thinking about changing jobs. Their main motivation? Better job opportunities.
Just as the events of recent years have changed the way we work, however, the pandemic has also changed what employers require. Simply put, digital skills have never been more valuable, particularly in the booming tech industry where the job growth for roles in fields like web development, data science, UX design, digital marketing, and cybersecurity is far greater than other jobs.
To start a new career in one of those in-demand tech fields, most Americans will need some form of reskilling or upskilling. The problem is that very few working professionals have time to get the digital skills training they need without quitting their jobs.
That’s why BrainStation is now offering its award-winning bootcamps on a part-time basis, giving students a much more flexible option to complete an intensive bootcamp and launch a career transformation in a way that fits their schedules.
BrainStation offers several part-time bootcamps to help you acquire the skills you’ll need to switch to a tech career without sacrificing your day job and other commitments.Speak with a Learning Advisor today.
