GizmoCrazed - DeVry University Answers the Call to Reskill America With Complimentary Technology Skills-Building Video Series

With more Americans unemployed than at any time in recent history, upskilling and reskilling has become an urgent priority. Answering that call, DeVry University released a complimentary Skills-Building Video Series that dives into some of the most in-demand technology and business skills in the workforce today, including coding with Python, data analytics, IOT fundamentals and even enhancing Excel skills for business. The self-paced videos empower students and professionals to develop and enhance highly sought-after, practical work skills for today’s difficult economy. 

In addition to the job losses inflicted by the COVID-19 crisis, it has previously been estimated that 36 million jobs are at high risk from automation by 2030, with an additional 52 million jobs at medium risk. On the other hand, demand for technical skills continues to rise, with data analysis, coding, and software development topping the lists of skills requested in recent job postings.

“These are unprecedented times in the American workforce. There is an opportunity for millions of Americans to upskill and reskill to meet the gap in in-demand jobs while securing themselves durable careers,” said Natalie Waksmanski-Krynski, Ph.D., professor and faculty chair in the College of Engineering and Information Sciences at DeVry University. “Many of those careers require immersion in technologies of the future, such as Python programming, IoT, machine learning and data analytics. These fields can be daunting, but these videos afford people an accessible on-ramp to those subjects on their journey to new or expanded careers.”
