“There is an opportunity for millions of Americans to upskill and reskill to meet the gap in in-demand jobs while securing themselves durable careers,” said Natalie Waksmanski-Krynski, Ph.D., Professor and Faculty Chair in the College of Engineering and Information Sciences at DeVry University.
“We are seeing a shift in the market, particularly as America emerges from the impact of COVID-19. Students and employers are seeking educational opportunities that provide a skills-based pathway to advancing their career trajectories,” said Shantanu Bose, Ph.D., Provost and Chief Academic Officer at DeVry University.
“This complementary video series is just one of many initiatives on the horizon for DeVry University in affording America’s workforce access to the skills they need to keep pace with changes in the market and to help remain durable throughout their careers,” he added.
DeVry said that new videos will be added in the coming weeks.
