Batch One – Year One complete and it rocked our socks!
Our batch 01 students have graced the halls of Holberton and as their first year winds to a close, we have some exceptional success numbers!
80% of batch 01 students are already working in the tech industry as software engineers. WOOT!
Students have landed jobs and internships in companies like Tesla, Apple, NVIDIA, Scality, Dropbox, Docker, Shopkick and so many more exciting startups. Our program lasts a period of 2 years, but many of our students already have jobs within the first year! How cool is that?
If you haven’t checked out the video of our students story yet, take a few minutes and watch it here.
Hear what some of our students have to say about their current roles in the tech industry:
Swati Gupta, Software Engineer at NVIDIA says,
“Holberton prepared me with tons of useful skills that are needed for a fast paced tech job, not just technical skills but soft skills too. I learned how to navigate, how to find the right tools and when to seek help. It made me a constant self learner, always adapting and accommodating to new information. The projects I did at Holberton were targeted at exposing all stacks of an application and based on latest technology, for instance the exposure to use docker containers. Because of the training I received at Holberton I feel more confident and prepared for my work life at NVIDIA“
Anne Cognet, Software Engineer at TESLA says,
“Holberton helped me get my internship at TESLA in so many ways. The school curriculum constantly pushed me to go deeper and do better. My classmates were very supportive, their approaches and questions helped me understand new concepts and gave me new ideas for solving problems. The school network helped me polish my resume as well. At my workplace, I am understanding & implementing the topics that I learned at Holberton. I believe the school gave me a strong foundation I can rely upon, and that makes me learn faster.”
Before we look ahead to accomplishing anything further, we wanted to thank our community of mentors, students and team who helped make this year such a success.
