Our Approach

Our Philosophy is really simple, Preparation + Opportunity = Success

Our Approach is straight foward; our training focuses on helping you solve the problem of not having the main criteria that can help you secure you a job, EXPERIENCE! Almond Careers focuses on providing  that experience through training.

 

The way we do it is simple; our training focuses on helping you solve the problem of not having the main criteria that can help you secure you a job, EXPERIENCE!. Employers need to be able to see that you have relevant experience in the area of the role you are applying for before they are even willing to speak to you. Almond Careers focuses on giving you that experience through training.

 

We have access to relevant projects within the IT industry, during training, we expose candidates to these projects and they learn by actually delivering a live project. This way, they gain practical experience in any of the fields within the project delivery life cycle. In addition, We have invested in industry standard software like Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio, JIRA, Basecamp, Github and many more to give you that opportunity to deliver these project using industry relevant tools.
