Explore IT careers, flexible training options at IT Works event June 27

June 8, 2018

With many information technology jobs starting around $20 an hour and high demand for those with the right skills, Nicolet College will hold an IT Works event Wednesday, June 27, for anyone interested in learning about the training necessary for a career in IT.

Hand putting in a plug“Virtually all businesses need IT staff and the demand is strong across the Northwoods for people with these skills,” said Nicolet College Career Coach Angeline von Neupert.

IT Works will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first floor of the Tamarack Center on the Rhinelander Campus.

The event will start with a presentation by area IT professionals. They’ll talk about what job demand is like, what they’re looking for in employees, and what it’s like working in the IT field, along with other topics.

Students currently in Nicolet’s IT program and the college’s IT instructors will also be on hand to talk about the different training options available through the college, including the new and highly flexible Nicolet My Way instructional format.

The new structure is built around open labs and online classes where students create their own schedule.

“Nicolet My Way opens up the possibility of college for people who thought college wasn’t an option,” said Nicolet IT Instructor Scott Biscobing. “It really puts students in the driver’s seat. Students are able to hold jobs to make money and take care of their families while earning a college education that will help them get ahead in life.”

After the presentations those attending will be able to ask questions about the IT field and also meet one-on-one with any of the presenters.

Interested individuals are encouraged to arrive at the start of the event. If that’s not possible they are welcome to stop by anytime between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
