Solomon just landed a job as a web developer

Before you came to Industry Connect, what was your experience?

I was a fresh graduate with no experience, and I found it really hard to get a job with no experience. I applied for a lot of jobs, but didn’t get any positive responses, but then my friends introduced me to Industry Connect.

What kind of technical skills did you pick up along the way?

I learned quite a lot, especially C#, .NET Framework which is really in demand in the market, along with other skills such as HTLM, CSS and Javascript.

Other than the technical skills you picked up, what were some of the soft skills you found valuable?

I also learnt a lot of soft skills, especially interview simulations, and working within a team. We also worked a lot on commercial experience which is very valuable for me and helped me get a job. I would like to recommend Industry Connect for people who are looking for a job. This is the best place for you.

Mankiran is Web Developer Now

Before you came to Industry Connect, what was your experience?

In India I worked as a software developer for 2 years, and then I came to New Zealand in 2016. I applied for so many jobs, but didn’t get a response. Then I came to Industry Connect.

What kind of technical skills did you pick up along the way?

I learned so many technical skills like MSSQL Server, Javascript, HTML. And I learned a lot about communication skills and soft skills.

What were some of the real-world examples of how you got to use those skills?

Before training with Industry Connect I was not good with communicating with people, but now I’ve improved a lot and I’ve learnt how to present myself in front of so many people and how to communicate well and express my ideas.

Here I worked within a team, and I enjoyed stand-up meeting, where we talked about everything- what we are doing, and what problems we are facing.

What would your advice be for someone thinking about joining Industry Connect?

My advice? I would always recommend Industry Connect for anyone who is struggling with finding a job in New Zealand, because here they prefer a person who has local experience and entry level qualifications.

It’s a great place and I’d like to thank Industry Connect, because without them I would never have had this opportunity.
