If you’re stuck in a job you hate, or maybe you’re not making enough money to make ends meet, then there’s always time for a change of career.
A new life in the IT industry might be just what the doctor ordered for you, and Industry Connect can help you get there.
If you’re interested in a career in the IT industry then we can help.
We have created special “job-ready” programs, each designed for a specific area of the IT industry. Designed to get you into the workforce in the career you want. , e,
These unique programming courses, specifically designed to help you get that extra boost you need to find a job, will give you a head start in the job search market and allow you enter the IT industry from the start.
We’ve helped hundreds of people land their first job, and you could be next.
Why it’s hard to enter the IT Industry to begin with
Experience is what employers look for, it’s that simple.
It’s all well and good having excellent marks in the classroom, but so do most other candidates for the position you’re going for. What’s going to separate you from the pack is actual, real-world experience, and that’s hard to get.
An employer will always hire someone who has experience, over someone who doesn’t. And why would they not? Working in an office along-side other people is more valuable than knowing the inside of any programming book. Dealing with real-time problems that appear in everyday business situations is not something that can be learnt in University; it’s only something that can come from experience.
How to enter the IT industry
Catch 22: How do you get the experience you need to get a job, without having a job to get the experience?
Internship. An internship is a great way to get your foot in the door of a business. Through an IT internship, you can get that vital real-world experience that you need to break into the industry and get ahead of your fellow Graduates. An Internship allows you to work alongside established IT professionals, deal with paying clients and solve real-time problems.
How we help people enter the IT industry
There’s no one better than Industry Connect to help you enter the IT industry and launch your career. We’ve been working in the IT industry for over almost 20 years, and know this business inside-out. We recognise that most IT employers don’t want to bother with the time and money it takes to “up-skill” a new employee, and would rather hire someone at that level to begin with.
We can get you to that level, so when it comes to securing your first job, you’re already ahead of the pack. Here with us, you’ll be working with experienced developers and real clients. Here you’ll learn the in’s and out’s of the industry, gaining an understanding of how business works. With us you will work alongside other developers, both experienced and new Graduates like yourself, acquiring communication skills, both professionally and personally.
Having started in Auckland just a few years ago, we’ve been so successful we are now expanding across the world. With offices in Melbourne and Sydney, Christchurch and Wellington, and now London, no matter where you are, we can help you enter the IT industry and start your career in software development.
