New Delhi, March 14 : In a fresh effort to reskill millions in the new normal, Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai has announced new initiatives, including opening up enrollment for latest career certificates, expanding employer consortium and new tools to improve the job search.
Pichai said that enrollment is now open for latest Google Career Certificates, in the fields of Data Analytics, Project Management, and User Experience (UX) Design.
“We’re also announcing a new Associate Android Developer Certification, which prepares learners for entry level jobs in Android development. With 1.3 million jobs open in these fields right now in the US, the opportunity is significant,” he said in a statement last week.
With more businesses embracing digital ways of working, it’s estimated that 50 per cent of all employees will need reskilling by 2025.
“We’re also providing 100,000 scholarships to be distributed through nonprofits, workforce development boards, and other community organisations,” Pichai said.
More than 130 employers have joined Google employer consortium, eager to hire people who have earned these certificates.
