Many people believe that in order to progress in the workplace, they must have a college degree and years of training. This is no longer true. The world has changed, and so have our strategies of job training. In this article, we’ll look at how technology is changing the definition of success in today’s economy.
Job training is no longer restricted to college or even high school.
Many of the jobs being created today do not require a college degree, so it’s no surprise that employers are hiring people right out of high school training programmes. Even self-taught programmers are getting jobs in the tech industry. People are no longer waiting for employers to provide training; instead, they are taking advantage of online resources and other free ways to learn new skills.
Employers are recruiting people right out of training programs with a high school degree.
Employers are looking for people who can learn quickly, says Marc Cenedella, CEO of Ladders.com, a job-search site for professionals. “It’s not just the degree you have or the type of work you’ve done before,” he explains. “Employers want someone who takes initiative and can adapt to new situations.” In other words, they want trainable talent—people who can do more than one thing well and work well with others.
Employers will continue to seek employees who embrace change rather than resist them as technology advances at an incredible rate. If you’re one of these forward-thinking individuals, and you’re willing to put in some hard work on top of your formal education and training, you could be well-positioned to succeed in this market!
Self-taught programmers are getting jobs in the tech field.
There’s a lot of talk about how technology is changing the way we work. But how exactly? One thing that’s clear is that technology has made it easier for people to learn new skills, whether they’re self-taught or taught in a classroom.
Self-taught programmers are getting jobs in the tech industry, but not always through traditional channels. Community colleges, for example, are providing coding training, and employers are looking for people with a high school degree who can learn how to code—a skill that many businesses say they demand more than ever before.
People aren’t waiting for employers to give them training either.
Employees are also taking the initiative to learn new skills. They are learning through online courses, online communities, and their colleagues. In many ways, it’s a progression of what we’ve been discussing: rather than waiting for employers to provide training, they’re educating themselves so they can keep their jobs and advance in their careers.
It’s no surprise then that more than half (53%) of employers surveyed by the CIPD said employees are responsible for developing their own digital competences. But companies can do more than just provide access to technology—they also need to support their workers’ efforts by offering learning opportunities as well as mentorship with senior staff members who have expertise in particular areas such as social media analytics or machine learning algorithms. This way everyone wins because everyone learns something new!
It’s not just tech jobs that are changing, it’s every sector of employment.
The shift in employment is not only impacting the tech industry, but every sector of employment. Employers are looking for people who can learn quickly and adapt to new technologies as technology evolves. As a result, many companies require candidates to have at least a basic understanding of computers before hiring them. Matter of fact, some research suggests that job seekers with basic coding skills will have a competitive advantage when applying for positions because they have critical thinking and problem-solving skills that other candidates may not have.
This isn’t just limited to tech jobs either; if you want any chance of succeeding in an increasingly technical world then learning how technology works is essential! The good news is there’s never been a better time than now since there are so many opportunities available online through free resources such as Coursera.
Even without a college education, you can still get a fulfilling job in almost any industry.
Even without a college education, you can still get a fulfilling job in almost any industry. In fact, there are now more than 250,000 open jobs in tech roles—and many of them don’t require an advanced degree.
Whether you want to build websites or manage social media campaigns for brands like Coca-Cola, Facebook, and Google, or even start your own business as an entrepreneur, you can learn the necessary skills online from anywhere in the world. And, with more than 50% of hiring managers preferring candidates with digital skills over those with degrees from elite institutions such as Harvard University or Stanford University (according to LinkedIn data), anyone can break into their desired field without spending thousands of dollars on tuition each year at traditional schools.
So, what should young people looking for work instead concentrate on? An increasing number of employers believe that soft skills such as communication ability (the ability to communicate clearly) and teamwork abilities (the ability to work well with others) are critical when determining whether someone has potential within their organisation.”
It’s clear that the way we treat employment skills is changing. Tech jobs aren’t the only ones that are seeing this trend, but they do represent one of the biggest changes to how people get jobs in today’s economy. While it’s always been possible for people with no college education or even high school diploma to find satisfying work, having a degree has been seen as essential for many careers. But with more and more companies looking at non-traditional ways of acquiring new talent, employees who want work can now find opportunities without needing extensive training or even formal education at all!
