Telerik Academy reports 35% more applicants for their programs per year. The organization says that 93% of the students who completed their Alpha programs for IT career start were able to realize themselves in the IT sector within 6 months.
Motivated by the opportunity for better work-life balance, higher salaries, and attractive company culture, people of all ages and backgrounds are making a 180-degree career change to IT. Usually starting from scratch. Although such a career transformation seems risky, the following stories of 3 software engineers prove otherwise. All three of them are graduates of Telerik Academy Alpha.
Alexandra Mechkova, our CEO shares that the courses should not be seen as a substitute but rather as a supplement to university education: "While at university one can go deep into theory, we add practice, work in a real environment, direct connection with employers, development of key personal and communication skills. We are often the transition from formal education to business."
Iskra Lumbeva, developer at OfficeRnD and one of our Alpha graduates: I decided to apply to Telerik Academy Alpha to find out if programming is my career path. I met incredible people there and realized that this is the environment where I want to spend my time, surrounded by intelligent people who want to develop themselves and learn new things every day.
