In all the time that we have been published this blog, we have tended to place our emphasis on rather general topics. We’ve discussed the overall benefits of online information technology training, and the large-scale trends in the IT industry. Naturally, we’ve gotten specific in our efforts to highlight particularly types of training, such as certified scrum master training and PMP training.
We’ve also made an effort to provide job descriptions for training and development specialists and other IT-related positions. But even these have been descriptions of the overall category of employment, and the types of online information technology training that might go into them.
If you scroll back through the past 18 months or so of posts, you’ll surely find good examples of all these sorts of topics. Without linking to them directly from this post, we’re confident that you’ll glimpse an appropriate diversity of previous entries, complete with references to whatever your area of particular interest may be, whether certified scrum master training, ITIL training, or anything else you might find on our main site.
But it occurred to us recently that one thing you may not find is many references to specific prospective employers. A couple of company names have come up from time to time, but with our overwhelmingly general approach to this blog we haven’t taken much time to talk about individual case studies. This is something we’ll try to rectify in the future, because we know it’s something our readers may be interested in. That is, we know that it will help you to visualize not only how you might use your certified scrum master training or other online information technology training, but also how exactly you could benefit from it.
To our credit, that’s kind of vision-boarding is the very thing we’ve been trying to illustrate with general discussions about trends in employee compensation, competition in certain markets, demand for particular IT skills, and so on. But we’re not all abstract thinkers, and it’s certainly true that some people benefit from being able to look directly at another person’s success, an existing opportunity, or other such case studies.
The main reason why this has come to our minds is because we’ve noticed that Computer World recently released its list of 100 best places to work in information technology. We’ve read some of the associated articles, and there’s a great deal of illustrative detail in them. The profile of Axxess, which is number one in the small company category, includes quotations from people regarding such things as how willing the company was to reimburse for professional development like certified scrum master training.
These stories are sure to find a rapt audience among anyone who specifically aspires to work at Axxess or another featured business. But even beyond that, the experiences highlighted in those stories give readers concrete examples about what companies in similar market positions may offer to new hires and established employees with the right skill sets. So whether Axxess is on the radar of your future career or not, read about it at Computer World and look for other such features here in weeks to come.
