Apprentices on Apprenticeships
Insights and advice from members of the ‘Class of ‘21’
WE DIDN’T SET out to make this the “training issue” of the ACDS newsletter. But once we settled on Dr. Donald Walker as this month’s Q & A, it just seemed natural to also include a handful of Registered Apprentices talking about how the kind of training Dr. Walker provides has helped them in their IT careers. That, in turn, gives us another opportunity to tout the new ITArkansas Magazine, from which these adapted and shortened apprenticeship quotes were pulled.
As we told you last month, volume 2 of the print edition of ITArkansas includes a special section on Careers, from both the IT talent and employer points of view. By now, you should be seeing copies of the magazine in schools and in office lobbies, not to mention on the website https://itarkansas.com. But if you’d like your own personal copy of the print magazine, please email Jackson Gladden at Arkansas Times (email@example.com), and he’ll shoot one out to you via snail mail. Meanwhile, we’re proud to present the following “success stories” from some of last year’s stellar crop of IT apprentices.
