You May Not Need a Full-Time Course to Change Careers

This post was written by Erica Freedman, Content Marketing Specialist at SwitchUp.

In recent years, the coding bootcamp boom has saturated the market with a variety of programs. Many software engineering and coding bootcamps offer full-time, immersive programs that can cost as much as $17,000 and require months of time to complete. Individuals who are working in full-time positions may not have the ability to quit their current career to pursue a new one. Flexible options offer a potential route to achieving a shift, but some individuals may not need a full-length course to achieve their professional dreams.

Learn for Little or No Cost

Noble Desktop has a rating of 4.89 out of 5 stars on SwitchUp. These ratings are based on verified student reviews. This highly-rated program provides short-term courses that can cost anywhere from $0 to roughly $3,800. The courses also offer certification training in as little as 90 hours. These rigorous, skill-packed programs provide the perfect option for individuals who do not have extensive financial resources. Most of us do not have $17,000 sitting in the bank. With these low cost options, you do not have to delay your learning.

Skilling Up

By participating in a training course for Visual Design, Web Development, JavaScript, or even HTML and CSS, you could be setting yourself up to become a more valuable entity at your current company. Although bootcamps are often advertised as career-changing training options, they do not have to be. If you are, for instance, an individual working in communications or marketing, skilling-up with a UI or UX certificate (or UI and UX combined) would create a more comprehensive understanding of your customer base. It would also help to ensure you can create products and experiences for your customers that you would not have necessarily been able to create prior. A holistic approach to customers is an invaluable piece of marketing and communications. With Noble Desktop, you can become this person at your current job in just 60 short hours.

Similarly, if you are an individual who has a background in Graphic Design or is currently working as a graphic designer, you may be able to take a few short courses to set yourself up for a new career. By combining you artistic skills with some programming skills in a field like UI design, you would be able to quickly skill-up and start a whole new chapter. Individuals with a technology or coding background can also use certificate programs to transition into a different branch of tech or development. A website developer may want to transition into applications. A course such as iOS App Development could be all you need to make the leap.

Continue to Learn For Fun

There are no downsides to achieving a more comprehensive education. By continually honing skills in technology, you are ensuring your relevance and worth in the professional world. According to DQYDJ, there are currently over 4.2 million individuals working in some form of software engineering. Whether you are looking to switch careers or improve your current one, knowing some basic coding and design can only help your future.
