Today we meet Ivan Rachev, who dropped out of university to pursue a career as a programmer. Only half a month after graduating from Telerik Academy, he landed his dream job in IT.
2019 was a big year for Telerik Academy. We’ve launched several brand-new programs, moved to an amazing building of our own, grew the team with 33% and greatly expanded Telerik Academy School’s training centers around the country.
Today we meet Pavel who shares his experience with the Academy, which helped him find his dream job as a Software Developer and transform his life. Prior to joining the program, Pavel had neither coding education, nor experience in the field.
Kiril eagerly shares Telerik 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.
In the last decade, we’ve been working hard to fulfill our mission – connecting Bulgarian talent, organizations and training resources to advance personal development, professional careers and grow the IT ecosystem. We’ve pioneered IT career jumpstart programs and launched free private trainings for kids, paving the way for other tech-ed organizations.
In June we launched the first-ever complete UX/UI Design program in Bulgaria. 37 professionals successfully graduated from it, mastering how to design digital experiences that put users front and center.
Almost all of Telerik Academy graduates (98%) successfully start a career in the IT industry. More than half of them (58%) receive remunerations higher than the ones in the software industry and for 80% their salaries are higher than the average for the country.
97% of the Telerik Academy Alpha graduates today live and work in Bulgaria. Nearly 70% start working in IT in less than 2 months from their studies’ end, followed soon after by the rest. Almost all are very happy with their current living standard.
"I see Telerik Academy as an inseparable part of the ecosystem. If I go back to Telerik, our company couldn’t have expanded so dynamically and achieved such results, if we didn’t have the opportunity to grow in a predictable and planned way, with talent that entered the organization right when we wanted it. There is no other existing organization on the market that can give such a controlled inflow of talent," Telerik Academy Co-founder Boyko Iaramov.
In the end of 2016, Telerik Academy – one of the leading tech-ed organizations in Bulgaria – was spun off from Progress as an independent organization led by the four founders – Svetozar Georgiev, Boyko Iaramov, Vassil Terziev and Hristo Kosev. In an interview for “Dnevnik” they talk about their plans for the Academy.
The record breaking 14 medals that Bulgaria won at the last International Informatics Competition in Shumen were just one aspect of the good news for Telerik co—founder Boyko Iaramov. He contributed significantly to the ranking of 4th and 5th graders at the leading 8 positions: they all are trainees of the Telerik Kids Academy.
