Grow with Google HSI Career Readiness Program



What is Grow with Google?

In today’s rapidly changing world, young people need more digital skills than ever to succeed in school and their careers. Yet, among 18- to 25-year-olds, less than half (44%) believe their education system is preparing them with the skills they need to enter the workforce. That is why UCF Career Services has partnered with the Grow with Google HSI Career Readiness Program to provide digital skills workshops and help students obtain the training they need to excel in the workplace.

The Grow with Google HSI Career Readiness Program is a series of courses designed to teach students the digital skills they need to succeed in the modern workplace. After completing the program students can request a Google certificate and badging.”
