After a couple of years working in a trade I am looking changing careers and undertaking study in IT.
I have a few questions for those hiring in the IT sector.
I have seen from previous posts that those hiring are very interested in how you code and seeing any programs you have made on Github.
If a employer looks over a potential employees Github, how much of a influence would the choice of training institution of the potential employee have?
So you can get a idea what I'm trying to weigh up is University/Southern Institute of Technology(or similar) or a IT academy like the ones you hear advertise on the radio.
What area of programming to focus on to have good positioning for employment
Networking and Security
I enjoy designing things/systems and would like to work in the field of IoT's so I was thinking embedded systems, however while searching through the jobs and throughout day to day life I have yet to see much evidence that this field is exploding like I thought it would.
I have started learning basic c++ and also hoping to learn some java before I start studying
Any suggestions on how best to set myself up so I am a good option for a employer when I finish.
If you knew the stuff you know now when you were training how would you do it?
