About The Tech Career Accelerator

The SkillHat Tech Career Accelerator is a program designed to help you transition into the tech industry.

 

It addresses the common obstacles that prevent people from making an effective pivot into tech, such as lack of experience in a cross-functional product team, no product portfolio, and low confidence.

 

The program provides hands-on experience and the opportunity to build a product portfolio by allowing you to take on a role within a real product team, solving a real-world problem.

 

You can take up roles in the cross-functional team such as UX Designer, Business Analyst, Product Manager, Scrum Master, or Software Engineer.

 

The goal of the accelerator is to provide you with the skills and experience necessary to launch a successful tech career.
