Are you ready?

To increase your earning potential. Break out of the status quo. Smash your ceiling.

Change Your Future

In today’s digital economy, there is no shortage of quality, high-paying jobs. The problem is, there is a shortage of workers who possess the skills needed to obtain those jobs.

GreenFig is here to bridge that gap. We help talented individuals develop their digital skills and precisely match them to the needs of hiring companies. And, we do it quickly.

There are a host of reasons that you may need a digital skills upgrade. Perhaps you are a recent college graduate who needs to add real-world experience to your resume in order to improve your job prospects. You may be aiming for an internal promotion, but you need the latest digital tools to do it.  Or, as the head of a marketing department, you may be looking for ways to upskill your team in order to bring outsourced digital marketing initiatives in-house.

To be sure, there are other online education programs out there. But GreenFig is different. Our courses — focused exclusively on high-demand skills areas, such as digital marketing — take place in an accelerated experiential learning environment taught by current industry experts.

What does that mean for our learners? For starters, you need only commit to an average of 10 hours each week. Secondly, because our curriculum includes a real-world project for a real-world company, our students graduate with the know-how and experience necessary for a job-ready resume. Finally, since our instructors are experts in their fields, our students develop skills precisely matched to what hiring managers are looking for now, as well as invaluable industry connections and references.

At GreenFig, we do not email you reading materials and expect you to go it alone. Our unique hybrid approach combines live, interactive online and offline team-based learning with real-time, hands-on instruction laser-focus on skill development and job-readiness.

History Majors: You’ve Got a Future in Tech

We’ve all heard the joke: What’s the difference between a large pizza and a history degree? One can feed a family of four. For the purposes of the pun, history can be replaced with any liberal arts major. From English and art history to political science and philosophy — the notion has been that those who choose a humanities tract graduate from college with heaps of debt yet find themselves working as a barista or the checkout line at Whole Foods. But that doesn’t mean their liberal arts degree doesn’t have value — even as we transform to a digital age. Many assume that in our current (and future) tech-consumed and driven world, that math and science education — software engineering, programming, coding, and the like — is the exclusive golden ticket to career success. To be sure, we need these kinds of minds and this kind of training. But, it’s a mistake to believe that the liberal arts educated don’t have a critical role to play in the digital workforce. Because after all, who is going to do the selling, the marketing and the customer servicing of today’s technology services and products? Answer: Those who have honed critical thinking, writing and interpersonal skills, and who possess the nontechnical ability to connect with end users a la their liberal arts education. This notion is confirmed in “That ‘Useless” Liberal Arts Degree Has Become Tech’s Hottest Ticket,” a Forbes article that provides example after example of liberal arts degree holders achieving success in today’s tech world, along with stats to back up the claim that tech companies are increasingly recruiting more nontechnical talent. The article uses the analogy of the automobile industry in the 1920s, which “created enormous numbers of jobs for people who helped fit cars into everyday life: marketers, salesmen, driving instructors, road crews and so on.” A similar trend is unfolding today. The article goes on to reveal that “throughout the major U.S. tech hubs, whether Silicon Valley or Seattle, Boston or Austin, Texas, software companies are discovering that liberal arts thinking makes them stronger. Engineers may still command the biggest salaries, but at disruptive juggernauts such as Facebook and Uber, the war for talent has moved to nontechnical jobs, particularly sales and marketing. The more that audacious coders dream of changing the world, the more they need to fill their companies with social alchemists who can connect with customers — and make progress seem pleasant.” And the ability to connect is what liberal arts thinkers do best. But don’t pack your bags for Silicon Valley just yet, English majors. Yes, you’ve got great critical thinking, writing and communication skills. And yes, tech companies are hiring nontechnical people like you. But to land one of the aforementioned sales and marketing positions requires more than just a degree. While you have the right foundation, your university education did not prepare you with the up-to-date digital skills and experience required for a job-ready resume in the fast-moving, fast-changing digital age. That’s why a liberal arts degree crossed with a microdegree in applied business science from GreenFig is such a powerful combination for procuring a growth career in tech. GreenFig’s curriculum has been tailored by industry experts to help you gain these high-demand skills and master critical strategic concepts in a short period of time. And unlike traditional online courses, GreenFig’s hybrid training platform is laser-focused on experiential learning — combining live, interactive online and offline team-based instruction, all the while guaranteeing its students gain real-world, practical experience. So you can demand a higher salary in an evolving industry faster than it takes to perfect latte art.
