“Employers don’t want someone who’s wet behind the ears. They want someone who has experience.”

We here at Industry Connect have designed a programming bootcamp specifically designed for software developers.

The idea is simple; bring in software developers through our programming bootcamp, teach them everything you know, and then find them work at the end of it. Sound simple? It is! The hard part is getting on the bootcamp to begin with. With more and more people graduating with IT related degrees, everyone wants to stand out from the crowd. Having experience with Industry Connect is a great way to do that.

On our programming bootcamp you’ll learn more in a week than you did in a year at University. That’s because there are things in the real world that they don’t teach in a classroom. Things they CAN’T teach in a classroom. Like how to deal with an angry client… or a stupid one. Real-time, real-world problems are just a fraction of what you’ll learn to deal with here, along with the latest advancements in the IT industry.

Having a programming boot camp on your CV is another huge advantage that you can’t afford to miss out on. Employers don’t want someone who’s wet behind the ears. They want someone who has experience. Someone who knows the latest ins and outs of the IT world. An employer will look at a CV for an average of 2-7 seconds. That’s it! If you’re lucky you’ll get a whole 5 seconds to impress someone. Your CV is just one of possibly hundreds they might look at on any given day. What will catch the eye in those 5 seconds? What will stand out to an employer when they skim over that front page? One word: experience.

“…This is your chance to shine in front of a potential employer…”

Of course, once you’ve completed our programming bootcamp, you might not even have to apply for a job with hundreds of others. With us, you’ll be working up close and personal with professional entrepreneurs. Businessmen with years of experience in the IT industry. People who have their own companies- and are always looking for more employees. This is your chance to shine in front of a potential employer, to show them your passion for leaning, your skills in the digital world, and your dedication to the job at hand. Our programming bootcamp is basically one long job interview!

And of course, there’s an advantage to this type of course that no-one ever really considers: the social aspect. Our programming bootcamp is designed for young men and women who are either in college or a few years out of it. On the course you’ll be working everyday with people your own age, often new to Auckland or New Zealand. It’s a fantastic opportunity to make friends, join a social circle and expand your horizons. Many of our interns from overseas are shy and aren’t comfortable with their level of English, but working and communicating with others to overcome problems and find solutions is literally a life-changing experience.

If you think that our programming bootcamp sounds like something that can help you, then give us a call today, and let’s get the ball rolling on your new career!
