Powering Career Skills
The tech industry needs a capable and diverse pipeline of employees to fuel 21st century jobs. The need is currently outpacing the supply of skilled talent. To power the global economy, we need to bridge the skills gap and build a diverse talent pipeline for the jobs of today and the future.
To prepare more people with the skills needed for high demand tech jobs requiring technological expertise, we are teaming up with Udacity to launch nanodegrees, new educational online pathways to industry-relevant skills. Nanodegree curricula are online, project-based, and taught by leaders in tech, with support by coaches. The nanodegree will be fully recognized for entry-level jobs at AT&T and up to 100 graduates will be placed in paid internships at AT&T. We are also providing scholarships to students through several leading nonprofit organizations.
