Why you should join our July intake

As technology business owners, we see an increasing issue where there is a shortage of skilled software developers in the market to support business growth, however, at the same time recent graduates with acceptable grades, struggle to find their first entry-level role and get their careers underway.  There is a real risk that these technology graduates will be lost from the industry if they do not find their first role and instead pursue other employment options.

As employers and senior IT managers over the last 15 years, we have employed many technology graduates and believe we understand, and can address, the fundamental drivers of this problem. Our goal was to create a course that addresses these issues.

Often employers don’t want to invest in up-skilling a graduate in commercial software development tools and frameworks.  They would rather hire someone who already has acquired these skills elsewhere.

Many students that graduate university technology courses demonstrate introverted personality traits.  They are often quiet, shy or reserved and don’t effectively ‘sell’ themselves.  For some graduates it is their personality or communication skills, for others, it’s cultural or English is a second language.

Many graduates don’t have the industry knowledge and confidence to approach the job hunt and talk with prospective employers effectively and therefore, they are not able to answer interview questions effectively.

Many graduates don’t have the industry connections to help them find their first job.

That’s where we can help.

Come along to one our information evenings and let us show you how we can help you launch your career in software development.
