Just ten percent of adults in this country are pleased and contented
with their working life. Naturally most will take no action. The reality
of your getting here at a minimum indicates that you’re considering or
may be ready for a change. For those thinking of re-training,
it’s crucial to initially know what you want and don’t want from the
position you’re looking to get into. You need to know that the grass
actually is greener before you put a lot of energy into altering your
life’s plans. We recommend looking at the big picture first, to make the
right judgements: * Is working with other people your thing? Is
it meeting new people or being part of a team? Maybe you like to deal
with tasks that only you know how to deal with? * Are you
considering which sector you maybe could work in? (In this economy, it’s
even more crucial to get it right.)* Is this the final time you
plan to retrain, and if it is, will this new career give you scope to
do that? * Do you have niggles about your possibilities of
finding new employment, and being in demand in the employment market
until you plan to retire? We would strongly recommend that you
don’t overlook Information Technology – it’s no secret that it’s
developing all the time. It’s not full of geeky individuals lost in
their computer screens every day – it’s true those jobs exist, but the
majority of roles are filled with ordinary people who get on very well. How
the program is actually delivered to you isn’t always given the
appropriate level of importance. In what way are your training elements
sectioned? And in what sequence and at what speed is it delivered?
Normally, you’ll join a programme requiring 1-3 years study and get
posted one section at a time – from one exam to the next. This may seem
sensible until you think about these factors: What would their reaction
be if you find it difficult to do every module at the required speed?
Sometimes their preference of study order doesn’t work as well as an
alternative path could be. Truth be told, the best solution is
to obtain their recommendation on the best possible order of study, but
make sure you have all of your learning modules right from the
beginning. Meaning you’ve got it all in case you don’t finish within
their ideal time-table. Commercial qualifications are now,
without a doubt, beginning to replace the more academic tracks into the
IT sector – why then should this be? With fees and living expenses for
university students climbing ever higher, plus the IT sector’s
recognition that key company training is often far more commercially
relevant, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in Adobe, Microsoft, CISCO and
CompTIA based training paths that supply key solutions to a student at a
much reduced cost in terms of money and time. They do this by focusing
on the skill-sets required (alongside an appropriate level of associated
knowledge,) instead of trawling through all the background ‘padding’
that academic courses often do (because the syllabus is so wide).
When an employer is aware what work they need doing, then they just
need to look for a person with the appropriate exam numbers. The
syllabuses all have to conform to the same requirements and do not vary
between trainers (like academia frequently can and does). Be
alert that all certifications that you’re considering are recognised by
industry and are up-to-date. Training companies own certificates are not
normally useful in gaining employment. You’ll discover that only
industry recognised qualifications from the top companies like
Microsoft, Cisco, Adobe and CompTIA will mean anything to employers.
