It probably goes without saying that to stay in the job market these days, amidst so much uncertainty, you have to keep learning. It’s evolve, or die (not literally). While there are still many cushy jobs about, the days of milking a piece of paper you received 20 years ago are over for most of us.
So I’m excited to be working with InfoSyte, a leading IT trainer in Malaysia, for two reasons: 1) I get to tell their story through data-driven approaches, which is always fun; and 2) I’m familiarising myself with the latest IT skills and certifications. In other words, I’m learning about learning at a time when ICT matters more than ever. Very meta.
For example, I knew that cybersecurity was important. But I was less sure about the skills or qualifications necessary to succeed in the cybersecurity world. It all seemed very cryptic (excuse the pun) and even off-limits – until now.
InfoSyte partners with the likes of Cisco, Huawei, Microsoft, Oracle and CompTIA to provide the very latest IT training. They also offer soft skills training, which is equally important in today’s world – ultimately, while having technical skills are important, you will be more marketable if you can influence people, especially as automation gathers pace.
Their location is also a strategic advantage: InfoSyte is based in Malaysia, located in the heart of the fast-growing ASEAN region and within sight of China.
While they have two training centres in the KL area, InfoSyte also deliver classes around the world. In recent weeks they were in South Africa, Ghana and Zambia (the latter two are also Belt & Road countries).
If you’re working in IT and interested in taking a course, and quite frankly you should be – because the world is undergoing rapid change at the moment – then take a look at InfoSyte’s new website.
And if you’re not working in IT, then take a look at the website anyway – IT is a safer career choice than most.
