The online information technology (IT) news and information network, Internet.com has just launched a new IT educational portal, http://education.internet.com. Education.Internet.com connects IT Professionals and developers with schools, IT training information, and professional certification opportunities - all in the name of helping them advance their careers.
Education.Internet.com works with hundreds of well-respected journalists and industry leaders to provide:
- A variety of IT education and training articles, arranged into "Editor's Picks," "Most Popular," and "Most Discussed." Recent titles include: Programming Languages: Career Essential or Outdated Skill?, What's Holding Up Your Job Advancement?, and The Makings of an IT Manager.
- Information on "hot" vendor and product certifications.
- Opportunities to connect with technical training programs and schools.
- Cutting-edge IT degree program resources, and more.
General Manager of Education.Internet.com, Daniel Gehant, says he could not be more pleased with the opportunity to add a training and education portal to a network of sites that already has such a strong presence in the technology community. "Many professionals have relied on Internet.com for a long time for their industry information, so it absolutely makes sense to be able to give them information about schools and professional certifications that can help them advance their careers," said Gehant. "You hear all kinds of statistics about jobs in technology and the rate that those jobs are changing -- how schools are educating students for jobs that don't even exist yet. Whether you're already working in the technology industry or you're starting your IT education from scratch, you need some resource to help you to figure out what training is available, and what school or training program could be the right fit for you. That's what Education.Internet.com is for."
The Tech Timing Is Right
Employment projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicate the number of computer specialist jobs will increase by an impressive 45 percent between 2008 and 2018. Computer specialist jobs include computer programmers and software engineers, computer analysts, networking specialists, information systems managers and more. Today, these professionals are employed in just about every industry, and will continue to be as the world grows more and more dependent on technology and those who create it.
The technology field changes at the speed of light, and so does the training that goes with it. Education.Internet.com provides detailed and timely information on the certifications and degrees that are hot-right-now, as well as those that will be valuable into the future. The BLS notes that professionals working in this field have a higher level of education than average, and that some employers require computer specialists to have technical or professional certifications. Vendors such as Microsoft and Cisco offer certifications for their products, while other certifications cover specific job functions like the Project Management Professional certification, PMP.
When it comes to technical certifications, Gehant notes, "It can be a little confusing if you're just starting out and you see all the certification acronyms like MCSE, MCSA, CCNA -- a lot of them are pretty similar. We've designed the portal to help clear up confusion, and to help the Internet.com users find ways to get to the bottom of which certifications will provide them the most bang for their buck."
