Personal Programmer Trainee

Companies have been investing in new talent for ages. It is a great way to bind people to their brand and to teach them the tricks of the trade. This starts when new talent is still in university and where they learn about the working world through their internships. It is a great way to get a feeling of what it is like to work full time for a company and what their responsibilities in the future will be. But after people have graduated, there mostly lies a big gap between leaving school and getting hired to learn those important first years of experience. Especially in IT and even more in countries that work mostly for international companies, it is extremely difficult to bridge that gap.

Personal Trainee

Personal Programmer is building that bridge between graduation and the first years of working experience, by providing graduates with a kick-start of their career through the Personal Trainee program. At the same time, this program gives Personal Programmer’s clients the possibility to invest in the talents of tomorrow.
