This course is a practical guide for students moving from school to their first job in Information Technology. It covers the importance of school (hint: not just grades!) and how to develop the skills that employers are looking for today. The course walks students through the job hunting process from beginning to end: building soft skills and technical experience, writing a resume and cover letter, looking for jobs, interviewing, and finally accepting a job offer. It also provides answers to frequently asked questions about getting that first job in IT.
