Georgi Georgiev was studying Informatics and Cybersecurity in Saarbrücken, Germany, when he first heard of the then brand new 6-month program for a successful career start in IT - Telerik Academy Alpha. Eager to pursue a career in Bulgaria – it didn’t take long for Georgi to put his academic studies on hold, came back to Bulgaria and apply to Telerik Academy Alpha. Immediately after graduating it, he landed his dream job at Tick42.
According to the latest BASSCOM annual study of the Bulgarian software industry, the number of employees in it has increased with 15% compared to last year. This makes for a staggering 3,563 new jobs in the hottest sector in the country. At the same time, just 12,9% of all students are pursuing STEАM degrees. Does this mean the gap between companies’ needs and professionals available on the market will keep widening even further? It doesn’t have to.
It took Georgi Manchev just 2 weeks to land his dream job in IT after graduating from Telerik Academy Alpha. But he hasn’t always been on the right track to a promising tech career. Prior to joining the program, Georgi worked as a waiter and bartender and had no coding experience at all. During the intensive 6-month training, he was equipped with the knowledge and skills companies look for and joined Experian as a Junior Software Engineer.
Our network of partners continues to grow - joining the ranks are Bede Gaming, a leading supplier of gaming software, Fourth, a leader in cloud-based forecasting and cost control software for the hospitality industry, and Gtmhub, a goal management and employee experience solution provider that earlier this year closed a €1.2M seed round. Also, ICB, a Bulgarian software and consulting company, are continuing their partnership with us and together with Bede Gaming will provide real-world projects to our .NET students.
