Another week, another success story from Industry Connect!
Alex moved here from Macedonia when he was a teenager, and since he’s lived here, he has studied at Massy University, where he graduated with a degree in Computer Science.
But like many people, as Alex discovered that having a degree doesn’t mean having a job, and he had a hard time finding work. “I had a tough time looking for work,” Alex explains, “I was searching the web and came across Industry Connect, and thought I’d give it a shot. I wanted to learn and it seemed right to me.”
So what were Alex’s experiences at Industry Connect?
“Well first of all, Industry Connect is a great place,” he says. “I recommended it for anyone wanting to get into the IT industry. They help you with everything; they teach you how to work in a team, just make you a better person, and on top of that, you gain some unbelievable skills.”
“When I came here my skills were at level zero, but I went from zero to one hundred pretty quick thanks to the development staff. You guys have some brilliant developers here, and the knowledge I gained from them was priceless.”
So how did Industry Connect actual help Alex get a job?
“Well I came out of Uni as a recent graduate, I had this piece of paper thinking I had all the world in my hands, and I thought that was it. But as I started looking for jobs I realised people didn’t hire without experience, and relative experience to the role.
“That was something new to me, and it was hard, because my CV was on point, I had a good CV, but I wasn’t getting many interviews.”
“So Industry Connect helped get me from the recent graduate point, to me being employable, and then me walking into an interview and it not being a problem. You guys prepped me with many sessions here, many pretend interviews, and you guys helped me with my coding.
“My coding skills went through the roof, and I was then confident. I’ve been working here in mostly C# and MVC Framework, and the projects I did with you guys were unbelievable.
Would Alex recommend us?
“Absolutely. I highly recommend Industry Connect to anybody out there, if you guys want to join this, then don’t wait, because these guys will help you.
“I recently got a job with ICM Asia Pacific, it’s a great company, and I’ll be working as a software developer, all thanks to these guys.”
We want to thank Alex for his time with us, he’s a great guy, and we wish him all the best for the future.
