New job opportunities for IT graduates

Published: Wednesday, 18 April 2012   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

The British company Atlanta Technology has launched a Junior Sales Academy programme in an attempt to boost job opportunities among IT graduates.

Considering how bleak the reality is looking for recent IT graduates, the London-based management services provider is doing its best to bring some much needed positive news to the sector.

The Academy offers graduates an apprenticeship-style programme that provides six-months of formal sales and marketing training that includes working in conjunction with the existing team to gain valuable on-the-ground experience.

“The training and mentoring provided is second-to-none and will give recruits the skills and confidence to personally advance, in addition to supporting the continued growth of our business in the business-class cloud services sector," said Simon Kelson, Managing Director at Atlanta Technology.

Graduates taking place in the programme will be able to gain experience in the very latest technologies including virtualisation, cloud computing and disaster recovery.

Established in 1996, Atlanta Technology advises, supplies and supports advanced technology solutions aimed at enabling growth and adding value to their business customers. These include private and public sector organisations.

Good timing for an IT offer

This offer comes just a few days after recent news revealed how tough the unemployment reality is hitting British IT graduates.

In a recent major conference on IT industry, it was revealed that up to 23% of those IT students who graduated in 2009 have no jobs at the moment; and that around 70% of IT projects fail these days, stopping recent graduates from progressing in their careers.

The participants in the conference dealt with the challenges the industry is facing at the moment and  related those issues to education and experience fields, pointing out the need to strengthen links between education and the technology sector to help shape the future of Britain’s IT sector.
