Crack the ‘code’ to a successful career change

shutterstock_252909271Many of us may feel like our career skills are not keeping up with the fast-paced and ever-changing world around us. Technology is moving at 100 mph while many people may only be trucking along at 40 mph in terms of their career skills.

Anyone seeking a fast-growing career field where the potential for pay is sky high might want to consider the possibility of coding and software development.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for software developer is expected to grow 22 percent by 2020. Not only is the industry growing at a fast pace, 33 percent of IT workers in the baby boomer generation are expected to retire in upcoming years.

Concordia University offers a Coding Bootcamp targeted at career-changers who could make the transition on the fly. Within three months, pupils in the bootcamp could be able to begin a job search armed with in-demand knowledge and the ability to apply their skills.

Coding Bootcamp teaches either .NET or Java, two of the most popular coding languages in the world. According to one survey, .NET and Java are among the most frequently used languages for websites.

There is a shortage of qualified trained computer programmers and developers, so the demand for new coders is high. This bootcamp is a 12-week course that teaches students at all levels of experience the skills they need to become entry-level computer programmers. The Concordia Coding Bootcamp also features corporate partnerships with businesses that recruit graduates for open positions within their firms.
