Have you heard that "you need a college degree to get a job in the technology field?" Do you think you cannot land a high-paying job unless you already know someone who works there? Or have you been told that "technology jobs aren't for people like you?"
Create Opportunity Columbia is an initiative that identifies, trains, and places individuals from unexpected places into technology careers. Along with our partners, Catalyte and Midlands Technical College, we find the people that others overlook. We provide a software development training program through Midlands Technical College, at no cost to participants, to teach computer programming skills.
Successful graduates are hired by local employers as entry-level software developers. You will spend two years as a full-time employee surrounded by a supportive team of more experienced tech professionals who make sure you're confident and ready to keep building your skills and a career.
We are currently looking for people to join our upcoming training classes in the Midlands of South Carolina. If you're a curious and creative person who loves solving problems and being part of something bigger than yourself, we invite you to take our online screening to see if you might be a fit for a career in technology.
What We Look For:
· Interest in pursuing a career in software delivery and technology
· Basic proficiency using a computer and the internet
· High school graduate (or equivalent credential)
· Eligible to work in the US for thirty continuous months from the first day of training
· No prior felony convictions or misdemeanors of a violent nature
There is no charge for the training. At successful completion of the six-month training, you will be provided a 2-year apprenticeship with a local employer paying approximately $40k/year with benefits.
