Tech Jobs Academy is a collaboration between Microsoft, the NYC Tech Talent Pipeline and the City University of New York (CUNY). In its pilot year, these partners have joined together to launch Tech Jobs Academy at CUNY’s New York City College of Technology. This program expands access to industry-driven technical training to unemployed or underemployed New Yorkers who are passionate about launching a new career in technology.
Tech Jobs Academy students will spend 16 weeks developing highly sought-after skills in cloud and server administration, as well as building professional skills to help them land a job upon completion. This pilot program will serve twenty-five motivated New Yorkers.
