Online education has been a buzz word for a while now. And the list of online education sites goes on and on … Coursera, Udacity, Udemy etc. Also, the advantages and disadvantages of online education are fairly well known. But I think that you will agree, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages.
And now, online education gets even sexier!
Udacity, in collaboration with us, has launched their #BeInDemand program. The program aims to bridge the hiring gap in the I.T. Industry. The stated goal is to upskill at least 100,000 students by 2017(!).
The way it works is simple.
First, you must solve quizzes on our website. The quizzes will be based on concepts such as algorithms, data structures, machine learning, web development etc. Based on your performance, we will suggest a course for you to take on Udacity’s nanodegree program.
The next step is to complete the course! Once you’ve completed it, you will be qualified to take part in an online hackathon on our platform. Attend the hackathon and wow us with your skills.
Afterwards, our hiring partners will look at your achievements during the course, as well as the hackathon. Depending upon your achievements, walk away with awesome job and internship offers!
So this is how you, dear reader, will infiltrate the working class mass intelligentsia.
