IT Beginnings is for young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 interested in tech careers. Employers across industries need tech professionals and IT Beginnings offers basic training and a certification that will allow young adults to continue their education in the field or obtain entry-level positions. In addition, participants will learn by touring Raleigh businesses, getting exposure to advanced technical training programs, as well as mentoring and internship opportunities.
IT Beginnings is free, but there is an application process as the class will be limited to 15 participants. The first class runs from August 18th to November 8th and will be held at 900 South Wilmington Street in Raleigh.
Applications are still be accepted for the next class.

*More than a third of companies surveyed by CareerBuilder are actively recruiting veterans. And almost half (47%) of the same employers have hired a former member of the armed forces in the last year. Employers love veterans for their initiative, work ethic, and tenacity, yet they can lack the technical skills and qualifications needed to enter the civilian workforce in such a competitive job market. In November, CAWD established the state’s first Specialized NCWorks Career Center for veterans to help veterans move more readily into civilian jobs. Veterans from all military branches can utilize the center and family members are welcome as well.
The National Guard Employment and Education Center (EEC) was already providing job search assistance to servicemen and women. Now they offer enhanced services. Capital Area’s one-stop staff trained National Guard personnel on NCWorks policies and procedures so that customers can receive any of the WIOA services for which they qualify, such as training for new skills or increasing current skill levels. They can also utilize the job matching capabilities of NCWorks.gov.
Although veterans can access workforce services at any NCWorks Career Center, being located in the NC National Guard Joint Force Headquarters offers more convenient access prior to exiting the military, and valuable peer support.
The Specialty NCWorks Career Center is located at 1636 Gold Star Drive in Raleigh.
