What you'll Learn in this Online masterclass
Who should join?
This session is for computer science and IT students – who’s looking to expand their network in the tech industry and to discover opportunities to get hired.
Who is presenting?
Hi, my name is Heislyc. In the past 12+ years, I have held multiple technology roles and worked alongside companies like AmBank, AngelHack, YTL, AIA, MaGIC and Founder Institute.
I’ve also worked with over 100 startups & SMEs on their product ideas and development through mentorship and my software development talent network at Devs Asia.
Over those years, I’ve learnt that fast-growing tech companies often don’t have an efficient way to recruit the right talents to their companies.
And talents, especially IT/CS students do not equip themselves enough when searching for jobs. Yes, they are equipped with the basics tech know-how – but lack other areas like mindset, tool set and technical skills.
This cost talents a loss in opportunities and the chance to demand a fair pay grade! That’s why I started Devance Academy to help you – tech talents, to skill up and hired in fast-growing tech companies.
