As the war for tech talent continues, companies are feeling the pressure to offer exorbitant salaries in an effort to win out against their competitors. It’s a candidate’s market, with degree-holding software engineers having their pick of employment.
But what about candidates that don’t have an official degree, but do have the right skills to get the job done?
Someone who has the skills necessary for the job is often overlooked because they lack the traditional degree from a university to back it up.
Non-traditional education methods, like coding bootcamps, are becoming increasingly popular. Here are a handful that Tech Talent Canada recommends.
