Free education and a paid internship
Despite the fact that another academic year is behind us, our hard-working students are attending online courses in which the King experts share their knowledge and experience! For the fourth year in a row, we are hold the KING ICT Academy, a programme that provides free education and a paid internship.
From the 100 students of different university programmes (FER, FOI, EFZG, PMF, TVZ, etc.) that applied, 30 were selected based on different business roles, such as business analyst, tester and JAVA and .NET developers. For each group, workshops and lectures were organised, and this year 26 KING experts participated as lecturers or mentors, all with the same goal – to pass on their knowledge to young generations with the wish that they soon become the newest additions to our team.
After the theoretical part, students will have the opportunity to learn more in the practical part of the Academy, on a real project within one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
Those students who stood out the most will be selected to take part in the practical segment of the Academy
Academy participants will undergo selection testing, and those chosen will form a project team who will receive the task of developing a web application.
The web application is built according to the customer demands, as defined by the “corporate mentor”. The technology itself is not defined in advanced, but instead depends on the previous experience of the selected candidates and their preferences, all in line with King’s technological radar.
All the solutions and results will be presented by the students to the King staff at the “Show Off” showcase.
King 2020 Summer Academy
Last year’s Academy was an excellent example of successful remote work, and this year, we will continue with the same practice. Our aim is to make every Academy even better than the last, and to ensure that both students and King mentors are highly satisfied with the results.
According to the impressions of former academy attendees who today are part of the King team, we know that we have succeeded in our aim!
