Evening Coding Bootcamp Carrie Ryan Alumni Spotlight Update

Evening Coding Bootcamp Carrie Ryan Alumni Spotlight Update We Can Code IT graduate, Carrie Ryan, was featured in an Alumni Spotlight interview with Course Report back in July 2017. Since then, she has been promoted from a Junior Developer Intern to a fully-fledged Web Developer at United Consumer Financial Services in Cleveland. We caught up with Carrie to see what her experience has been like working in the tech industry and how she worked towards her promotion.

“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”

– Andy Laytin, Manager, IT Development, SQL DBAs Architecture, University Hospitals

It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have.  We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools.  These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.

When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
