What are employers saying about their experience working with MSP TechHire training partners and having graduates as employees?
"Kaitlyn was fully capable of making a contribution on ‘day one!’ Our new hire is a pragmatic problem solver who is capable of leading projects, working in teams, and communicating well with both our staff and customers. The experiential learning and real-world projects provided during Kaitlyn’s training made the difference in our hiring decision. We hired based on this training, and not on a requisite college degree. We would recommend TechHire candidates to companies searching for top-tier talent!” - Tom O’Neill, President of the Nerdery.
“Prime teaches students how to think like a developer in ways that can't ever be taught in a traditional classroom. The methods of collaboration they learn is incredibly well aligned with a professional position and with those skills, they can quickly come up to speed on any technology they may appear 'light' in.” - Empulse “That this was a great experience and seeing so many folks truly interested in development because of what it allows them to do and how it allows them to solve problems is a refreshing change to the average 4-year program candidate.” -CRC Marketing Solutions“100% worth your time. It was one of the most positive recruiting experiences I've ever had - in any field, not just tech - and I'll be singing its praises and telling my friends (who are also on the prowl for solid development staff) about Prime.” - Mall of America
“The IT-Ready workers came in with some excellent technical training, as well as soft skills training that they need in order to quickly integrate into our company,” said Becky Ryan, senior manager, Enterprise Support Centers, HealthPartners. “After experiencing the success of IT-Ready graduates, it became clear that IT-Ready training was exactly what we are looking for in new entry-level hires. Not only are these employees technically trained, they have a wonderful attitude and are totally engaged in their work environment.”
“Our experience with IT-Ready grads has been very positive,” said Rachel Wittrock, human resources generalist, Virteva. “Since Virteva is a managed services provider, our new hires can face a steep learning curve. But because they’ve gone through the rigors of the IT-Ready program and certification process, graduates have already demonstrated an aptitude for the work, as well as the ability to quickly learn and assimilate new skills.”
“I was looking for candidates or potential training grounds for tech support candidates, and saw IT-Ready,” said Bryan Altman, OurWizardFamily.com chief operating officer. “I was thrilled to learn IT-Ready certifies both the technical and soft skills we are looking for. Because we're a relatively small company, we call on each team member to wear a lot of hats.”
