The tech industry offers jobs, stability, security and salaries twice that of the national average wages. And the best part is, as a skills-based industry, a college degree is not required! Many companies, including Google, Apple and IBM, have dropped their requirement for college degrees and are showing favor to candidates with technical certifications, engagement with tech programs and pre-employment training.”
