In light of the current climate, remote work is at an all-time high. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused restaurants, bars, and companies like Google, IBM, and Indeed to shift their everyday office operations to work from home. We’ve seen industries respond responsibly and with agility by leaning on technology to mitigate some of the disruptions caused by COVID-19. For example, many restaurants have ceased table service and gone the take-out and delivery route by partnering with tech companies like Doordash.
So what does that mean for you? Well, now more than ever is a great time to launch and grow your career in tech. This blog will explain the value of apprenticeship and how it can help you stay agile with the times. Learning a new trade can be time-consuming and daunting for some, but it can propel you into a dynamic and resilient career. An apprenticeship can help you develop the skills and network needed in an ever-changing industry. Let’s take a deeper look at what an apprenticeship can provide.
HOW HAS DCI Impacted you and where do you see value in the apprenticeship?
We heard from 3 apprentices in DCI and here's Geraud Bastille on what it's like to be an apprentice and go through the training and mentoring.
“I believe that wisdom is more useful in life than knowledge alone, and wisdom is something that only comes when knowledge meets experience."You can do it the hard way on your own, or benefit from the guidance of someone who’s walked the path before you.”
Bootcamps and Internships are great but if you want to launch your career with a portfolio, build highly marketable skills, or assistance with job placement, then DCI might be for you. Imagine having a portfolio displaying 13 + relevant skills and 40 + competencies recognized by the Department of Labor? Furthermore, Wynton Carter, an apprentice in ATX8 shared that "it’s nice to build a new strong foundation, have the tools to build it, and
not build it alone. DCI has been there to support me by providing industry-leading tools on how to build a more professional resume, mastering analytics, content marketing, and how to be more agile through SCRUM."
So what are you waiting for? Respond to your new environment with agility by leaning on technology. Use the disruptions caused by COVID-19 to grow your skills and propel yourself into a career. Experience mentor roundtables with CEO’s, learn more from industry experts, and your peers. Most of all, learn how to be agile in today's workforce.
