Bukas.ph x Man using multiple laptops

If you’re looking for a future-proof, in-demand, and well-compensated career, programming yourself to pursue a career in tech is the way to go. (Pun intended!)

Just a quick glance at the recent data and surveys on promising jobs in the digital age, regardless if it’s in and out of the pandemic, it all points to the highly competitive yet rewarding Computer and Information Technology industry. In fact, 4 out of 10 careers in the 2019 DOLE Report on highest paying jobs are related to ICT and Computer Science.

If that’s the case, the next best question to ask is how will you get there? How can you be equipped with all the skills and competencies you need in the shortest time possible?

The good news is you can kickstart your tech career with little to no experience through short courses like those offered by Uplift Code Camp. So whether you’re a tech geek, a career shifter, a fresh grad (with a different educational background), or just plain interested in learning how to code, this is for you!

You’ll also receive a certificate at the end of the program as proof of your newly acquired skill!
