A Graduate Testimonial
I was having trouble getting entry-level work in the field. (IT-Ready) has really opened up a lot of doors for me. I had multiple job offers. Now I'm working on a help-desk for one of the top companies in the country. I finally moved out on my own, and in a couple years I'll be able to look for a house to buy.

The information technology (IT) industry desperately needs skilled IT workers. Right now, there are more vacancies in IT positions nationally than there are qualified people to fill them.
At the same time, there are people who lack the opportunity to learn and apply valued professional skills toward a new and upwardly mobile career in IT. These include populations under-represented in IT – women and ethnic minorities – as well as unemployed or under-employed people, and those who have encountered barriers converting military experiences into civilian careers.
The Creating IT Futures Foundation – that’s us – is working hard to help meet the needs of the IT industry as well as these individuals.
As the non-profit foundation of CompTIA, the global IT industry association, we support programs and initiatives that help people find family-sustaining careers in the IT industry and help position them for long-term professional success.
