Raymond Johnson, CEO of Your Company
In today’s industry of technology it is important to have a degree or technical certification to advance your career. In this blog post I am going to discuss why. If you are currently in the field of technology and do not have a degree or certification, I will also talk about what your options are.
Why Having a Degree or Certification:
A degree in higher education (BA, BS etc.) demonstrates that you are committed to your own professional development. It makes you a more valuable employee and can help you stand out from other job applicants.
Many tech positions require at least an Associates Degree for entry level positions. The reason for this is because it shows that the employee has some education and is familiar with the software and hardware used in the business.
Earning a higher degree (MA, MS etc.) can help you stand out from other employees and may lead to promotions or pay raises. It also provides future opportunities when applying for new jobs.
The average salary for someone with a Masters Degree is $60,000 while those with just a B
The tech field is a rapidly growing industry and it can be hard to break into. Many people are seeking to enter the world of technology, but they are not sure what steps they need to take in order to make their dream a reality. Having a college degree or technical certification can help boost your chances of securing a job in the technology field.
Here are some steps you should take if you want to advance your career in the tech industry:
1.) Decide which aspect of technology you want to work in. Do you want to work in information security? In software development? In data science? In network engineering? Make sure you have an idea of what area you want to pursue because there are many different aspects that fall under the umbrella of technology.
2.) Determine which certifications will help you advance within your desired field. For example, if you want to work as a network engineer, then it may be necessary for you to earn certifications such as A+, Network+, CCNA, and MCSE. If you want to work as an information security professional, then it may be necessary for you to obtain certifications such as CISSP, CEH, Security+, and GIAC certifications. If you want to work as a software developer, then it
Most tech companies, including Apple and Amazon, require their employees to have a degree or a certification. In the field of technology, it is quite common for people to climb the corporate ladder without having a degree. However, in most cases, people who do so fail to move higher in the company.
The majority of tech companies look at two key things when considering someone for a job: their skills as well as their education. Having both will give you an edge over other candidates. It shows that you not only have the knowledge but also the experience.
A college degree or technical certification will help you get a job in any tech company. It opens up doors and opportunities for you to grow within the field of technology. If you are currently working for a tech company and do not have a degree, consider going back to school or getting certifications from different technology institutions.
Here are some things to keep in mind when pursuing your degree or certification:**
1)Degrees and certifications will help you become more marketable to potential employers. They give you credibility and show that you know what you’re doing.2)Getting certified will also open new opportunities for you within your current company. It may even lead to promotions!3)If nothing else, having
If you are a working professional looking to grow within your career, it may seem like the answer is simple. You need to work harder, longer hours and produce results that go above and beyond expectations to get noticed. While this is true in some cases, most of the time it is not enough. In order to get ahead in today’s tech driven world, you need a degree or technical certification. A degree or certification shows that you are dedicated to your career and you know how to produce results.
For those looking for a career change into the tech field, having an advanced degree or certification can be just as important. The majority of employers will require at least a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college. If an employer doesn’t state what level of education they prefer, its safe to assume that they will want someone with experience or have a high level of tech knowledge. This can be achieved through obtaining a technical certification. Employers look for certifications that are current and up-to-date with today’s technology trends. This is because they want people who can bring new ideas and knowledge into their organization so they can remain competitive in the ever changing tech market.
Keeping your skills up-to-date is crucial to getting what you want out of your career. If
Last year, more than 50 percent of all IT jobs in the United States were filled by people without a technology-related college degree. While there are certainly many ways to break into the technology field and start a career, one of the best is to get either a technology-related degree or a certification.
Without a degree or certification, you can expect to start at the bottom of the totem pole, working on basic tasks while those with a degree or certification will be given more advanced tasks. If you’re looking for an entry level position into the tech field, getting a degree or certification will help you become an invaluable asset to your employer.
For example, say you want to work as an IT technician for a large company. If you have no experience and only have high school education on your resume, you will be competing against others who also have no experience but do have some type of training that gives them an advantage over you. In this instance, your competition may include those who went through vocational school programs that trained them in computer maintenance and repair. Your competition may also include those who went through community college programs that trained them in computer hardware and software troubleshooting. Without any formal training, it will likely be difficult for you to land your first job in the tech field
For those of you who have a passion for technology and wish to turn it into a career, one of the most important decisions you must make is whether or not you will pursue a college degree or technical certification. Many people believe that having a college education is the only way to get your foot in the door at most tech companies. Some companies may require you to have a degree, but many others do not.
The question that begs to be answered is: Which is better?
I am sure you will receive answers from people on both sides of the fence. I myself am one of those people who did not go to college. I was fortunate enough to get my first job at Dell as an entry level software engineer with no degree. I later went back to school when there were no more challenges in my field and received my Bachelors in Information Systems Management. However, I do know many people who are very successful in the tech industry without a degree.
So what should you do? Again, this is a personal decision, but here are some things to think about:
Do you have any technical certification? If so, do they match well with current job openings in your area?
If you do not have any technical certifications, are there any that interest
Education requirements for tech jobs vary from none at all to an associate, bachelor’s or master’s degree. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reported that the majority of computer and information research scientists had a master’s or doctoral degree.
To join the field of technology, it is important to obtain a formal education in the area of specialty you are interested in. Though some employers hire candidates without a specific degree or certificate, having one is common and may increase your chances of landing a job.
You can earn a degree in computer science, software engineering or another related field at the associate, bachelor’s or master’s level. You can also earn a specialized certificate program in computer programming, web development, systems analysis and administration, software development and more.
In addition to educational requirements, there are many other factors that hiring managers take into consideration when evaluating potential employees. Some technical positions require experience with specific operating systems or software applications. In addition to educational training these skills are most easily gained through practical experience working with them.
Additionally, many positions will require you to be familiar with certain methodologies such as Agile, Scrum or Waterfall. Since these are commonly used within the field of technology it is
