Grow With Google Pakistan

 Google has launched Career Certificates in Pakistan to offer various training options so learners can develop in-demand technical skills. The tech giant introduced these certifications as a part of its ‘Grow with Google’ initiative in 2020. The program is now also available in Pakistan in collaboration with the Institute of Rural Management (IRM) and IGNITE. It enables learners to excel in six high-growth fields – data analytics, IT support, IT automation, Project Management, UX Design, and Digital Marketing and E-Commerce. With the professional training designed by Google, students, teachers, job seekers, entrepreneurs, and even developers can unlock new opportunities in local and international markets.

Google Career Certificates in Pakistan is Accessible for Everyone

Pakistan is one of the countries in dire need of a digital revolution. Google’s Regional Director for Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, Farhan Qureshi, hailed the program as the tech giant’s commitment to uplift this country’s digital industry. Learners are not required to have any background experience or knowledge to join this program. Even fresh candidates have a chance to get a professional certificate from Google and find work in the IT sector anywhere in the world. The program is entirely online, which means no classrooms or mandatory roll calls. Students will have full access to instructional notes, videos, and assignments through their laptops and mobile devices.

How to Join the Program?

Free enrollment has started as of September 23, 2022, and it only takes up to 6 months to obtain a certificate with 10 hours of study a week. Learners can make full use of the course’s flexibility and study at their own pace. To join the program, interested candidates will have to sign up on Coursera, an online course-providing platform established by Stanford University in 2012. It also allows a 7-day free trial with full access to all features. After the end of the trial period, a student may choose to pay a monthly fee of 39 USD (234 USD for 6 months) or request financial assistance. After certification, candidates can also access free resources that will help in their jobs, such as resume-building workshops, mock interviews, interview tips, and career coaching sessions.

Financial Assistance

Google is also providing financial assistance to Pakistani students so they can reach their full potential easily. It is good news for underprivileged candidates who usually give up on their dreams due to the high cost of education. The tech giant will distribute 1500 scholarships for students to obtain the certificate at no cost. To apply for financial assistance, students can fill up the online form with the required details and submit it. The form will be available on the official website of Coursera.
