Breaking News: The IT Pro Career Center is LIVE!

“Evolve Your Career in Cloud Technologies”

That’s the headline, and indeed the purpose of this new resource for IT Professionals! 

“The Microsoft IT Pro Career Center is a free online resource to help map your cloud career path. Learn what industry experts suggest for your cloud role and the skills to get you there. Follow a learning curriculum at your own pace to build the skills you need most to stay relevant.”

“This sounds pretty cool on the surface, Kevin.  What’s it about?”

This guy just got a promotion based on what he learned at the IT Pro Career CenterThere’s no denying that the IT landscape is an ever-changing place in which to live and work.  Skills that were valuable 5 years ago are not necessarily as valuable today or 5 years from now.  So, based on what you know (or what you’d like to know), do you know where you want to go?  And based on current trends and job types that are new or up-and-coming, do you have a clue about where to start?  And can you evaluate what specific skills you’re going to need some additional training on in order to get your next dream job, or ride the next wave of cloud computing careers?

That’s what this site is all about. 

Learn about the latest tech trends according to Gartner.  Take a self-evaluation on what you know or where you’d like to go.  And based on that, we’ll even give you a list of “homework” to help you get there, in the form of links to training and additional resources. Or, just pick a cloud role and see where the salaries fall.
