We were excited to launch our partnership with iyzico back in July 2022 to support women taking their first steps in software development careers. When we started off, the Front-end Practicum aimed to strengthen aspiring women programmers in front-end web development, one of the most demanded fields in tech.
Today, we’re super proud to announce the first results of our program! Only after two weeks of completion of the program, our graduates have already started to land their first tech jobs! Here are some highlights:
iyzico HR Partner Seval Utuş said “We’re proud to see many young women having such a great learning opportunity to directly benefit their careers. During the program, they received both social and technical support from their peers and Patika.dev mentors. Although we have started the program with the intention of supporting women and not necessarily hiring ourselves, we were pleasantly happy to hire three bright women from the Practicum - it’s super exciting for us to have a more diverse team!”
Busra Elif Kutlu, one of the program graduates who just landed her first tech job at iyzico, expressed her feelings saying “Learning together was amazing! With this group motivation and my self-belief, even if I had a non computer related background, I developed my final project to the best of my ability. Ultimately I got a job offer from iyzico! Now I am extremely happy that there is a new and exciting journey ahead for me. “
We are grateful to our partners like iyzico who make such amazing differences in the community!
