Martin Manchev has a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Master's Degree in Financial Management. For 5 years he gained experience and climbed the career ladder, but at some point he realized this was not his calling. He decided to pursue a career in the IT sector, which provides a more dynamic work environment and more opportunities for professional development.
Programming was just a hobby for Vasil Dininski. He studied “International Economic Relations” at the University of National and World Economy. Driven by his love for information technology, Vasil applied and was accepted to Telerik Academy. As soon as he graduated from the Academy, he started working as a junior software developer at Telerik, and since the beginning of 2017, he is now part of Amazon’s team.
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.
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.
Telerik Academy announced the admissions for the new edition of Alpha C# - the 6-month program anyone can join to start an IT career regardless of their experience and programming knowledge. Admission is open until February 1, 2023, and no previous coding experience is necessary - it is essential for applicants to be motivated and able to commit to learning.
