Top 5 Resources for CompTIA Certification Exams

As the MENA startup ecosystem continues to grow, the demand for good talent grows as well. As stated in a report from World Economic Forum: “Across the Middle East and North Africa, a number of countries have improved the educational achievement of their younger generations at notable rates and, by 2030, the region is set to expand its tertiary educated talent pool by 50%. However, youth unemployment in the MENA region stands at 31% and university graduates are making up nearly 30% of the total unemployed pool. Workforce participation gender gaps currently remain wide across the region, ranging from just over 40% in Kuwait and Qatar to nearly 80% in Algeria and Jordan, reflecting an inefficient use of education investments.” In order for young talent to prepare and be ready to enter the workforce, industry certifications specially in the IT sector are considered as one of the best options.

I was born in Palestine but raised with the fireflies in Georgia. My teenage years were spent being the Muslim nerd who was known as the bookworm of the school. That followed me back to Palestine, to develop into being the girl with the big vocabulary. I spent most of my high-school days cursing Newton for not eating that apple. My English Literature Bachelor's degree was only obtained because I'm a nerd for literature and my minor in Translation pretty much pays the bills, thank you Birzeit University.Creative writing is my passion and reading is my escape from reality into a world where everything is the way you imagine it to be.
