For 10 years now, we’ve been helping people to jumpstart promising careers in IT and change their lives. We called on our alumni to share their stories and how Telerik Academy impacted them.
Kiril eagerly shares the Academy helped him gain extensive tech knowledge and hands-on experience. Also, he emphasizes on the importance of building powerful relationships with Telerik Academy’s partnering companies. Last but not least, Kiril highly appreciates the interview preparation trainings, which were included in the program.
“Making a stellar first impression at a job interview is crucial. If you fail to present your best possible version, it wouldn’t even matter how good your technical skills are. The Academy trained us for real-life interviews. That helped me remain calm and confident throughout the process.”
Kiril landed his dream IT job just a few days after graduating from Telerik Academy. Joining Tick42 transformed his entire life.
“I can confidently say that Telerik Academy has been one of my best investments so far. Not only have I succeeded in changing careers, but I have also created some of my fondest memories there.”
Opportunities for professional development
“Together with two of my colleagues, we developed an Angular module for the Glue42 Desktop JS library. I also had the chance to create a developer tool for our main product – the Glue42 Desktop, which helps developers test and determine how different desktop applications communicate with each other.”
Freedom to explore
According to Kiril, Tick42 stands out as an employer because it gives its employees the freedom to explore new career paths.
Advice to the future Telerik Academy students
“Make the most of your time at Telerik Academy. Learning new things is tough but also fun. Benefit from the program and enjoy the moment. It’s a priceless opportunity for your career and personal development.”
Kiril adds that everyone might feel underwhelmed sometimes but that is a natural part of the learning process.
“If you think you can’t comprehend a concept, don’t hesitate to ask for help. You’re not stupid, you just need more practice. If you’re devoted to reaching your goal, you’ll surely get there.”
