Because we have such a close relationship with our students, we're able to put forward candidates we know are right for the job, easing the employer's workload considerably.

London, UK (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
Computeach has built up an enviable reputation for providing real training for real jobs. But from the very start, the organisation has realised that it's not just about IT Courses - it's about helping our students with the first steps on their new career path as well.
Computeach's career service helps newly qualified IT professionals find high quality employment within their chosen field, and works closely with companies looking for the perfect candidate. And it seems that their strategy of putting the right candidates in touch with the right companies is working.
Richard Coombes is the lead developer with financial technology development specialists Evaluate Technologies. After an employee, who was a former Computeach student, recommended he get in touch with Computeach to help them find a new developer, they were able to supply them with a list of suitable candidates.
"It is very useful to get good candidates that are pre-screened to your requirements," comments Richard. When we asked him what he thought the advantages of using Computeach Careers were, he stated: "the candidates would be passionate and committed having funded their own training and that we'd get a diverse range of people and some older candidates who would be hungry to succeed and improve as quickly as possible."
Building a real career in IT means staying up to date with the latest developments in the industry and expanding your skills base. Because Computeach works so closely with a wide range of employers, they have come to understand exactly what they are looking for in candidates and what range of skills their ideal employee should have. As a result they have been able to guide thousands of students into long-term career development solutions that have resulted in real jobs.
Darren O'Connell spent 28 years working as a charge hand road worker before embarking on a career change with Computeach. He has completed certificated courses in IC3 and A+, and is currently studying for his MCDST certificate. Once he had qualified in IC3 and A+, he worked closely with Computeach's career service to find a new job that offered him the challenges and career prospects he wanted, with great success.
"I have recently been offered a job which Computeach careers set up for me, all I had to do was confirm the date of the interview and turn up. Everything else was done by careers. So now I can look forward to the rest of my working life doing something I really want to do," he said.
Computeach's managing director Karl Parkinson is delighted that both employers and students are benefiting so successfully from the careers service offered. "With so many IT positions to fill, employers often find it difficult to whittle down the enormous list of potential candidates to a shortlist of really suitable applicants," he says. "Because we have such a close relationship with our students, we're able to put forward candidates we know are right for the job, easing the employer's workload considerably. It also means that in a competitive marketplace, our students have a real chance at finding the job that's going to offer them the career development they want," he adds.
