I think these projects are a great way of learning new things and applying the skills you’ve learnt.

The IT world moves so quickly, taking time off for whatever reason might see you fall out of the game completely.

This is exactly what happened to Veena, who took a career break, but realised everything had moved ahead while she was off.

It was only after coming to Industry Connect did she learn the latest technologies which put her back at the front of the IT industry.

We’re proud to say Veena has just secured a job as a .Net developer!

Before she started her new position, we gave her a call to ask about her time with us.

What do you think of the Industry Connect Initiative?

It is a great initiative, especially for people like me. I had a break in my career, and when I was trying to get back into work, there was always a problem with my career gap, so getting a job was difficult for me.

It was then I decided to learn new technologies, so that’s when I found industry Connect. I could see how they worked, and what they were doing to help people, and how they provided better opportunities to work on a live project, which was a great opportunity for someone looking for a new job.

Industry Connect also did a great job in making us independent with learning new technologies.

They provided training also, but without the hard work, we can’t do it. I found that we were more self-motivated from working there.

I thought it was a great opportunity working with them.

How was your journey at Industry Connect?

After the training, we are assigned tasks for onboarding and from the onboarding process itself we learn a lot, because this was the first project we had to work on.

Studying and working on a project is different. From working on a project I learned React code, so I think it was a great opportunity for me to learn React and complete the task in two weeks!

After the onboarding, it was a continuation, but I had to upgrade to a bigger project. There were some bigger stages happening in that project, like Microservice Architecture, so we had to learn all about that for the next task.

After that competition task, it was the advanced task, so stage by stage we learnt the most out of the technology.

I think these projects are a great way of learning new things and applying the skills you’ve learnt.

What would you suggest to people who want to get into the IT industry?

Hard work and never giving give up, that’s the thing. And try to learn new things every day.
