Microsoft Offering Free Training for Unemployed
Over the next 90 days, Microsoft will give away about 30,000 of the vouchers to unemployed folks in its home state of Washington, which is currently struggling with an 8.4-percent unemployment rate. The company offers a suite of technology certifications and training courses on topics ranging from software development to hardware deployment. Training tuition and certification fees can often cost many thousands of dollars, but is now free for the unemployed (or underemployed) who receive a voucher.
If you live in another state, there may be hope for you, too; Microsoft has pledged to give job training to two million Americans across the country over the next three years. [From: Microsoft Elevate America, Via: Fox News]
