There are many underdeveloped areas across Pakistan where students fail to get quality IT education and those who complete their IT graduation are unable to make career in IT industry because of lack of opportunities. To add value to the lives of these graduates, a group of individuals from New Horizon and its associates came together to initiate a CSR Program. They aimed to engage those eligible IT graduates of the country who have left the IT profession to support their families and for the sake of earning a better income they are working in some other industry.
The idea has been envisioned to transform their lives by providing them a platform where they can pursue their IT career and enable them to meet the emerging challenges in the industry. Top IT specialists and executive administrators worked together to design a comprehensive training program of six months for this purpose.
The individuals are selected purely on merit basis through an extensive testing and interview process. The trainings are provided under the supervision of leading IT professionals at the premises of the company. The course consists of three major domains, which include:
- Business Solutions
Professional certification courses are also included to keep the individuals updated with the latest developments in the field of IT. Accommodation along with a handsome amount in form of stipend is also given to the trainees so that they can learn with a peace of mind.
The training program provides an opportunity of getting core skills, experience and competencies to excel in IT. Individuals are encouraged to gain advanced knowledge for achieving their career development goals. On completion, a Certificate of Achievement is also presented from New Horizon.
With guaranteed job opportunities, this CSR Project has been running successfully by the patronage of New Horizon & its associates. The core objective is being achieved by reaching out to those graduates who are working in different fields to support their families but still want to pursue their career of choice, i.e. IT.
