‘Tis the Season to Job Search

December 23, 2019 in IT Career Program / by Alex Carnahan

May 24, 2019 in IT Career Program / by Elizabeth Granada

Hey! I’m Joe. I’m a graduate of Centriq’s Systems & Security Administration program.

Before I went through Centriq’s program, I was a struggling college student with no clear vision or goal for my career. I remember feeling lost, disconnected and confused.
