Rebooting a career is not unlike dealing with a locked-up computer. Sometimes a skilled technician is needed to step in and help find a solution.
Creating IT Futures provides the “Help Desk” for career changers and entry-level workers looking to break into the burgeoning Information Technology (IT) sector. Through its IT-Ready program, participants learn foundational skills which enable them to hit the reset button on their future.
Greg Bartell, of Champlain, Minnesota, was faced with this problem after spending six years in retail and food service management following college. He wanted something different after hitting a roadblock in his career and working 70-plus hours a week.
IT-Ready would offer him that opportunity. Despite having a limited background in computers and IT, Bartell told WorkingNation that getting into IT-Ready would provide him the certainty that his previous career did not.
