If you want to advance your career, it is important you’re always learning and boosting your resume. Fortunately, in the field of IT, new developments are being made all the time and there’s always something new to learn.
One of the best ways to ensure you’re keeping your skills sharp is to consider taking online courses and certifications. Certifications look great on a resume and can make you a much more desirable candidate – provided you choose the right areas to become certified.
While you may have a lot of options when it comes to IT coursework, some of the top online certifications you may wish to consider include:
There are many online courses that can help you learn another language. Harvard University and MIT are among the academic programs offering courses that focus on specific programming languages such as Java. By learning to program, you can open many doors for yourself in the IT industry.
While learning programming languages can help you expand the arsenal of tools available to you, you can also focus your educational efforts on learning to accomplish specific IT tasks. For example, if you’re interested primarily in making apps for phones or mobile devices, completing a course on making apps can be your best option. There are courses that guide you through the app creation process from start to finish, including submitting a completed app to the app store.
There are a surprising number of software programs that are difficult or impossible to use without specialized training. For example, you may want to take a course in Adobe Photoshop if you’re interested in graphic design or a course in Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator. You just need to select the right coursework with the software that is relevant to your field.
