Gain the skills you need for a coding role with the new guided learning experiences from Unity.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left millions of people around the world unemployed. As part of the Unity Social Impact efforts, the Unity team plans to provide an alternative, no-cost path to employment with the launch of career pathways.
The new initiative features guided learning experiences that help anyone interested in coding and getting into the gaming and tech industries learn new skills needed to obtain a job, regardless of prior experience. The new program is said to be perfect for a wide range of backgrounds. It also supports the team's commitment to creating inclusive economic opportunities, including opportunities for Black and Latinx creators.
Over the next three years, they want to equip over 80K people with the skills to launch a career with Unity. The first new pathway is Unity Essentials, a 1- to 2-week guided course on Unity basics, designed for anyone who wants to become familiar with Unity and real-time content creation.
"Unity Essentials covers everything you need to take the first step toward a new career, from must-know industry terms to the creation of your first project," wrote the team. "This beginner-friendly pathway features interviews with Unity veterans who share their experiences creating with Unity and showcases the various ways in which Unity is used in industry, from games to film."
The second pathway is Junior Programmer, and it will help you learn the coding skills you need to create your dream project and start expanding your career opportunities.
