Ever fell into the temptation to adopt a senior dev only hiring approach? Seniors, while they do have extensive experience, might be costly and hard to attract and retain, if they’re your only option. What’s the alternative?
At Telerik Academy, we groom top tech talent and connect it with leading businesses where they can further grow and excel. These are successful tech companies that want to have control and predictability when scaling their teams, attribute equal importance to employees’ tech and soft skills and are ready to invest in their continuous professional development.
Employees are the backbone of IT companies and their most important asset. Finding the right people to join is crucial to the organizations’ success but may be a daunting task, especially when you have a relatively small talent pool available and an ever-expanding demand for software engineers.
Telerik Academy Alpha is an-depth practical training for a successful career start in IT. Our number one goal with every Alpha program and cohort is to prepare our students to land their first jobs in IT and help leading tech companies grow and scale by sourcing master junior talent.
Ivan Parvanov, developer and Telerik Academy alumni: “I graduated from Telerik Academy two months ago. Within the first week I received 3 job offers with the help of the Academy. By the end of the second week, I had already signed a contract. The difference between the Academy and universities in general is that practice is core to all training programs at Telerik Academy.”
Telerik Academy’s new programming course aims to address the great need for talent in the tech sector. This is a 6-month course on Java – one of the most popular programming languages in the world. According Telerik Academy, 97% of their alumni work in the IT industry and 70% jumpstart their careers within just 2 months of graduation.
Since Telerik Academy’s launch eight years ago to-date around 12,000 people have been trained onsite. More than 45,000 have used the Academy’s online resources (including 3,800 video lessons with close to 6 million views). Telerik Academy’s results are impressive.
To prepare their children for their professional development, many parents invest in lessons on foreign languages and math. Although the mastery of both is a prerequisite for success in many professions, they are not sufficient to prepare students for the professions of the future.
After leaving Progress in the end of 2016, Telerik’s four founders – Boyko Iaramov, Vassil Terziev, Svetozar Georgiev and Hristo Kosev, spun off the tech-ed organization they created in 2009 – Telerik Academy – into an independent company. Their idea is to transform the project into a self-sustaining business, grooming talent for all companies in the IT ecosystem, as well as to continue to train children and high school students for free. These plans include the current building.
