Google has recently launched a new set of career certificates aimed at helping people break into the tech industry. The certificates are designed to teach skills that are in high demand by employers and can be completed in six months or less.
The new certificates are part of Google’s “Grow with Google” initiative, which aims to provide free training and tools to help people acquire the skills they need to succeed in the digital economy. The certificates are available in three areas: data analytics, project management, and user experience (UX) design.
Each certificate program includes hands-on projects and real-world scenarios to help students develop practical skills that they can apply to their careers. In addition, Google is partnering with employers like Deloitte and Infosys to offer job support and career coaching to certificate holders.
One of the benefits of the new certificates is that they are affordable and accessible to people who may not have traditional education or work experience. The programs cost $39 per month, and Google is also offering financial assistance to those who need it.
The launch of these certificates comes at a time when the tech industry is facing a skills gap, with many employers struggling to find candidates with the right skills for open positions. By providing accessible training for in-demand skills, Google is helping to address this issue and provide opportunities for people to break into the tech industry.
