CompTIA AITP: A Whole New Idea for An IT Association

Blog Single
I am proud to introduce you to the beginning of a brand new CompTIA AITP!

Along with a refreshed website, today we’re unveiling a unique benefits package that is designed to not just promote and support the IT profession, but to provide an entire ecosystem that helps IT professionals succeed at every stage of their IT career — from career selection to resume, from first job to promotion, and from networking to forming lasting relationships.

When CompTIA and AITP agreed to join efforts in 2016, we committed to preserving a 67-year-old heritage and tapping into the best of both organizations to build the future for a strong association foundation. We want CompTIA AITP to be the place that helps build and elevate IT careers, that connects IT students and IT professionals from all walks of life, and that is the conduit that allows IT professionals to become part of an organization that shapes and impacts the future of the IT workforce in ways no other place can.

While our organization derives its strength from its growing base of thousands of dedicated members across the United States, we also know that CompTIA’s experience and resources can amplify the impact its members can have. So we decided to come up with an entirely new benefits package for our members.

As a result of our collaboration, members can now access TechTalent, a custom job board that does not just offer one of the most extensive lists of available IT jobs in the United States, but also uses live data to find out where the greatest job opportunities in your field of expertise are and takes the pain out of creating a resume with a smart resume builder. It’s a fantastic way IT job seekers can connect with employers.

We’ve also added more than 1,200 online training courses from Lynda.com, ranging from project management to coding — all included with your CompTIA AITP membership. Add to that a constantly updated library of career tools, career advice and IT research that keeps you on the leading edge of IT trends and job opportunities, and you have a powerful tool set to fuel your IT career.

And we’re just getting started! We will be rolling out more additions  and enhancements over the coming months.

I invite you to explore the new CompTIA AITP and what we have to offer. Check out our chapters around the nation. We’re looking forward to hearing from you about what you think and hope that we can greet you as a future member of CompTIA AITP!

Join us as we launch the all-new CompTIA AITP!
