Are you confused and overwhelmed by the variety of training and degree programs available in tech? Do you want a career change but don’t know where to start – should you pursue a whole new degree or try some certification programs first?
As part of the 2020 Charleston Women in Tech Mentor of the Month Program, Tonya Davis will share her expertise on degree programs, certifications, and on-the-job training opportunities to help you make the most of your educational time and dollars.
Have a custom tutorial from the industry’s best ‘over lunch’ on ZOOM. There will be plenty of time for Q&A afterwards and feedback from the mentor team.
This program is brought to us through the generous sponsorship of Charleston Southern University Computer Science Program, and with the assistance of Society of Women Engineers & Women in Defense.
