Verizon Skill Forward helps Texas delivery worker pivot into IT – Verizon Communications

Tech skills in demand

As technology continues to disrupt today’s workforce, many U.S. workers like Morris need reskilling and upskilling in order to stay competitive and avoid job displacement. Verizon Skill Forward is part of the company’s $44 million workforce commitment to prepare 500,000 individuals for jobs of the future, and a key initiative within its Citizen Verizon responsible business plan to move the world forward for all.

Participants in Verizon Skill Forward can choose from a range of 10- to 15-week programs such as: Cybersecurity Analyst, Digital Executive Assistant, IT Support Specialist, Junior Web Developer, Junior Cloud Practitioner, Digital Marketing Analyst or Junior Full Stack Java Developer – which Morris opted for.

Through the daily, 9-5 training, Morris was able to deepen her knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL and Spring Boot. She also received soft skills learning, career coaching, and peer support she says were the missing piece to landing a job in IT.
