Ahh, the new year.
It’s the time of the year that reminds us what’s important in our life. A time that challenges us to set goals (big or small) for the year ahead to make sure that we prioritize those things. For you, this could mean taking up a new hobby, doing some travelling, changing your diet – or what could be the bravest one of all – switching up your career.
Sure, changing gears and moving into a new career is a big step – luckily, you don’t have to do it all at once. There’s a way that you can keep your current job set-up while furthering your education in pursuit of a career in tech, one of Vancouver’s fastest-growing sectors.
To celebrate the New Year and making resolutions you’ll actually keep, the tech school is giving Daily Hive readers the chance to win free tuition to their part-time program starting in January. For real.
It’s all about making a resolution you will actually stick to and having a happy new career!
