With businesses going more and more digital, it is estimated that more than half of all employees will need reskilling by 2025.
In a blog, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, announced new efforts, including opening up enrollment for the latest career certificates, expanding employer consortium, and introduce new tools to improve the job search.
Google has started enrollments for Google Career Certificates, in the fields of Data Analytics, Project Management, and User Experience (UX) Design. A new Associate Android Developer Certification is also there for entry-level jobs in Android development. We’re also providing 100,000 scholarships globally, for Career Certificates in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In India, we’re working to make certificates more accessible and launch an employer consortium, wrote Sundar Pichai.
Last year, Google also announced a $10-billion fund for Google for India Digitization to help accelerate India’s digital economy.
