A career as a programmer is a good choice these days. Software Developer jobs have now taken over, and not only are there plenty of opportunities available, but they’re also very well paid.

If a career as a programmer is something that interests you, then Industry Connect can help. We have created special software development courses, each designed for a specific area of the industry. Each have their own advantages, and each will give you a head start in the search for a job.

These unique software development courses are specifically designed to help you get that extra boost you need to find a job and kick-start your career as a programmer. We’ve helped hundreds of people land their first job, and you could be next. Here are the top five reasons people sign up with Industry Connect.

You need experience to get a job

Working with us will provide the opportunity to gain hands-on work experience that you simply won’t get in a classroom setting. You’ll be very lucky to find a company that will hire someone straight out of university without any experience. Industry Connect’s specially designed job ready courses will give you the experience you need to start a career as a programmer.

Grab the advantage in the job search

Any potential employer will usually be more concerned with your work experience than your qualifications. Signing up to one of our courses is the perfect way to get the work experience you need. Many employers specifically state on their job listings that an internship or equivalent experience is needed to even reach the interview stage.

Get a job at the end of it all

A good way to think of our job ready courses is to think of them as a really long job interview. Here at Industry Connect we have a significant proportion of our staff made up from previous intakes. Full-time workers who came to us through the programmer internship we offered. And many of our other interns went on to work for our partners in the IT industry.

Decide on your career path

The world of IT is a huge one, and there are many different careers available to you. Our various courses are a great way to test the water and see if this is the right path for you. The courses on offer cover many different subjects, so if you’ve trained in Java, but find that iOS App Development is for you, then this is the time to try different waters without committing.

Get to meet the people who matter

Knowing someone is half the battle when it comes to landing software developer jobs. Working with us here at Industry Connect is the perfect way to get to meet people in the industry, and more importantly, let them get to know you. It never hurts knowing someone who’s in a position to employ, recommend or even just put down as a reference.

Our unique job ready courses will teach you the ins and outs of the technologies we use, and provide participants with local NZ work experience on large commercial projects for. It’s open to graduates, new immigrants and even people considering changing careers entirely. Call us today if you’re interested!
