Do you need a 4 year degree to take advantage of the top job openings in Cincinnati?
Let’s take a look at some interesting statistics on the job market as it stands right now.
Each year U.S. colleges award approximately 1.9 million bachelor degrees. In fact, nearly a third of the U.S. population holds a bachelor degree. Yet 7% of college graduates are unemployed and nearly 15% are underemployed. Despite a highly educated work force, employers difficulty finding candidates to fill open positions. Why, with a population of educated people who want and need to work, do tons of jobs go unfilled?
Where’s the disconnect?
Employers agree that if you have a college degree, even one in liberal arts, you have value. Your degree exhibits that have discipline, organizational skills, and the ability to perform critical thinking. But here’s the rub: today’s companies require even entry an level employee to arrive with experience in addition to a degree.
It’s the proverbial Catch 22. You need to skills to be hired and you need to be hired in order to gain skills. On the job training seems to be a thing in the past.
So, here you are. You worked hard for your degree, you have a mountain of student debt and no decent job prospects on the horizon. Not a great place to be. So, imagine this for a second: take your degree, hang it on the wall, and get down to the brass tacks of what it’s going to take to land a great job.
Because of the high demand something really cool has emerged. It’s called the Coding Bootcamp. Coding Bootcamps are becoming the best and certainly the fastest way to get trained for some of the most lucrative top job openings in technology.
Coding Bootcamps are short and highly intensive 8-10 week programmer training programs that cost a tiny fraction of what it takes to get a college degree. They are perfect for a highly motivated individuals who wants to get into the workforce quickly, start making real money, and have the kind of job security that most people only dream of.
So, are you ready to stop posting your resume on job sites and to stop worrying about how you’re going to pay off your student loans? Do you want to experience the pride and sense of accomplishment that comes with landing a great job that has a high rate of satisfaction? Then programming may be for you!
