“This is the easiest pathway to land a very nice job here in New Zealand.”
Bit.Country enables everyone to start their own metaverse for their social groups using the 3D world, NFTs, build communities-to-earn, and takes community engagement to a new decentralized dimension on Web3.0.
Bit.Country is a Metaverse as a Service Platform – MaaS, where users can launch their own metaverse project in 12 seconds. Industry Connect graduate Vuk Stanojevic recently started a job as a software developer with Bit.Country and he recently gave us his time to talk about his experience with us.
Thanks for joining us Vuk! Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m a software developer at big country and metaverse network. My software journey started with Industry Connect in 2018 where I completed the job-ready program and within six months I landed my first job in the industry.
Industry connect has helped me gain the experience to land the first job, because as you all know it’s very difficult landing a first job if you don’t have experience – because you can’t get that first job because you don’t have the experience – so this is a really great way to break the cycle and also learn not just software skills but soft skills.
What was the best part of Industry Connect?
The greatest part of Industry Connect was actually working inside a real company on a real project for real clients and getting that mentorship and advice from real software developers. That’s great because it’s something really good to put on your CV and to have a taste of what the industry is like.
Do you have any advice for someone who wants to get into software development or someone who is looking for a job but can’t get their foot in the door?
My advice for anyone wanting to even get into software, or if you do have a bit of software knowledge and just want to take it to the next level, is just to be patient, work hard and definitely sign up to Industry Connect as soon as possible! It would be it is the easiest pathway to land a very nice job here in New Zealand.
Well thank you very much Vuk, and good luck with your new job as a software developer at Bit.Country!
