Once again Industry Connect have taken someone who couldn’t find a job, brought them in under our wing, and helped them secure employment.
This time it’s Clovis who is starting a new career in the software industry as an integration developer.
Before he started his new job, we caught up with him to ask about his time with us and if he had any advice for other people in the same situation he was in.
Congratulations on your new job as an integration developer! What would you suggest to anyone wanting to get into the IT industry?
