Over ten years ago, careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) field barely existed―or simply weren’t recognized. This includes jobs in data science, machine learning, software development and more. With the age of technology, these roles are becoming not only more popular but more essential to the way the world works.
The problem: the resources you need to get to these opportunities aren’t as common or available as they should be.
Global tech giant Amazon is changing that now with AWS Educate, a free online educational platform that provides online training for web-based careers such as data science, machine learning, and software development. Amazon has partnered with Edukasyon.ph to bring the opportunity closer to the next generation of Filipino IT and cloud professionals.
What is AWS Educate?
AWS Educate makes use of cloud technology to provide tech-centered skills training and resources to educators and students all over the world.
By signing up, you will be guided through a personalized training program, called a “learning pathway,” co-designed by AWS curriculum experts from leading universities worldwide. That includes professors from Harvard, MIT, CalTech, and more.
After that, you’ll have the chance to take the skills you’ve learned from the platform directly into the workforce, via the Job Board. This feature allows you to search and apply for thousands of career opportunities from Amazon and its partners.
