MyComputerCareer — Information Technology higher education
BEWARE! I too am a former Instructor of MyComputerCareer.edu. This company is a Certification Mill and not a good one! They say they provide 15 certifications within their program; however, most leave with 3 or less. ($19997 for 3 certs is insane)
Unless you already have extensive IT knowledge, you will struggle with little to no real help (they just stress clocking in/out-not valuable assistance)
What they don't tell you is that out the 20+ persons who start a class, only 3-4 will usually get a job! And may of those get help desk jobs making $14/hr. I've heard from way too many students about the disappointment of not earning what was promised during the consultation (sales pitch-like used car salesman).
I worked with MYCC, I know the executives "Tony Galati and Amy Onuska (Tony's sister)". Don't cross Amy!
Most of the staff are Galati Family members who 'push down' all their work to the non-family staff members. Galati family members show up late, take long lunches, naps at their desks, leave after 6-7 hours, then have you fired if you 'turn them in'.
Like another former employee stated, they oversell, overcharge, and under deliver. They continue to focus wholly on sales and not student success. They have few scruples and will sell to anyone they can whether qualified or not! They are not selling anything you cannot get less expensive elsewhere (check out New Horizons!-they do better job for less). They make a fortune per training center while selling their 'lifetime career services' which is actually just an introduction to a recruiter. Set up LinkedIn account and you'll meet your own IT recruiters. They say they provide resume writing, but those writing have never hired IT, nor have IT experience. They just use a generic template.
Although I know that some of the staff do their best to do what they can. They have sold themselves into believing that they are changing lives. Overall they are selling a 'bait and switch', then tell the students their failure is due to their own lack of effort. Their marketing misrepresents the job market and opportunities available. The jobs go to those who have, or can represent some type of experience. No experience, no job (maybe $12/hr help desk)
They require co-signers for student loans. This is a huge flag and demonstrates that they do not believe in their own product delivering $60, 000/yr job as they promise.
-I've seen them miss-represent what they deliver, even lie about the cost comparison as they hold themselves up to the 'best' colleges and universities.
If you want to pay $20, 000 for someone to read and quiz you on past exams, I'm sure you can find great tutors at Kumon or Tutor Doctor for much less.
Sooner or later, ACCET or State Department of Higher Education will actually review their 'lack of curriculum' and sales tactics and shut them down. In the meantime, you've been warned.
Do yourself a favor and go to New Horizons or your local community college for a IT degree, or use "competency based learning"(Google that-suggested by another here and works) -For a better career & a better life with less debt without MyComputerCareer.com
