With this programme, we provide talented young people from Romania with free-of-charge crash courses within our company in fields such as software development, business analysis and testing. At the end of the programme, undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to join a 3 month paid internship programme.
On a regular basis, we organize at our company’s headquarters a session of free-of-charge crash courses for students who wish to become our interns.
Thus, From Zero to Hero is an intermediate stage in our recruitment process, by means of which we can get to know our future interns better.
We want these courses to be complementary to the theoretical training the students receive at the university, and thus we take the permanent collaboration we support in our academic, research and development programmes for students a step further.
