To break into the professional world of technology, says Huffington Post tech blogger Pietro Rea, you should narrow your search, create a portfolio—and build up your skills via lynda.com and other resources.
In the recent post “From Liberal Arts to Technology: Making the Switch,” Rea says he personally used lynda.com iOS training to “make the switch from ‘business guy’ to ‘tech guy.’ ”
Landing a job in the tech industry, he says, means knowing everything from Java and PHP to understanding algorithms and software architecture. “Omitting this foundation,” he argues, “would be like trying to become a surgeon without knowing basic biochemistry.”
With online video courses at lynda.com, you can reach your goals faster. Learn software, improve your skills, and get an inside look at how the professionals work.
