Portnov Computer School is now offering new, more challenging programs to career changers due to the increasingly demanding job market.
Portnov Computer School , Silicon Valley’s oldest and largest Software QA training institution is now offering new, more challenging programs to career changers which will benefit its graduates greatly, giving them better marketability. Companies which take interns will also be benefited as they will receive more skilled labor.
As Mikhail Portnov, the school’s director explains: "In Silicon Valley, we didn’t have a job market as good as today since the collapse of the Internet boom in 2000. At the same time, QA jobs became more technically demanding, so we have to offer more technically challenging curricula. We are getting more students coming from outside Silicon Valley, such as New York; Orange County; Florida; Oregon; Denver and Vancouver, Canada to mention a few. The demand/supply ratio for Software QA professionals outside Silicon Valley is much more favourable to job seekers compared to the Valley itself".
New technical areas included in the training cover the hottest job market demands such as testing mobile applications; testing web application; white box testing with JAVA and JUnit, and test automation tools (Selenium, QTP, and others).
Mikhail Portnov goes on to say the following about the IT job market: "The best kept secret of today’s job market is that the IT niche is booming." IT statistical data backs this up, as shown on the website www.techservealliance.org, which measures IT employment. The data on this website shows that on a year-over-year basis, IT employment was up 4.5 percent, compared to only a 0.8 percent increase in total non-farm employment.
This just proves that there is great job potential in this booming market and career changers would benefit greatly from Portnov School’s informative career programs which are now even better equipped to prepare them for the job market success.
