From developing next-gen video games and apps to defending networks from cyber-attack, there has never been a better time to get training for and a job in the Tech/IT industry.  There are an unlimited variety of training and career options to choose from, so it’s understandable why choosing one path is difficult.

Your TechHire New Mexico Career Development Specialist can help get you get started, but the bottom line is you need to do your own research. You are the only one that really knows what you like, or more importantly, what you don’t like.

The good news is that if you start with courses that teach you foundational tech skills, like coding/programming, HTML, and Java Script, to mention a few, you may develop foundational skills that will be transferrable to other Tech/IT trainings or jobs. At a minimum, taking free beginning or introductory IT courses will expose you to different Tech/IT topics that will help define your likes and dislikes.

Get your feet wet by taking some free online courses at Code Academy or other free sites.  For example, taking a free online Java Script course might give you a much better understanding of web applications.

Get online and start Googling!  Google things like “How do I know what Tech/IT training is best for me?” or “What are the Top Tech/It Careers”.
