It’s time. You know it. We all know it. It might seem painful but trust me it’s not going to hurt. That much.
Ok, I might be overdramatic, but learning a new IT skill can be challenging. If you are working full time it might be hard to find the time, or the motivation to do so. But is it worth it? Of course!
Sure, you might want to just curl up on the sofa and watch some NetFlix instead of sitting down and learning something new. On the plus side, the opportunities online these days to help you learn something new is extraordinary. There are masterclasses, beginner classes, tutorials and everything in between.
One of the most preferred options for learning a new IT skill is online boot camp. In these courses you can learn everything from front end to back end development of software or web technologies. There may be a cost involved, but the potential wage increase that those skills could bring you might just pay for themselves quickly.
If you want to learn something new, you might also want to check with your boss. A lot of companies encourage their employees to learn new skills that will help them be a more productive member of the team. They might be able to direct you to a preferred learning organization and might even pay for it. Jackpot!
If you want to start small, there are a number of fantastic YouTube channels that are dedicated to teaching IT professionals’ new tips, tricks, and skills. Just be careful as two things might happen. You might lose a bit of your mind hearing each one of them say “Be sure to subscribe and hit that bell icon” at the start of every video, and if you click on a “related” video you could find yourself watching some strange bigfoot-UFO conspiracy videos hours later.
Small price to pay for higher learning.
