Aim of the programIT Talents Ltd. is aiming at stimulation and support of the IT industry, making its contribution to young people’s development in Bulgaria. The successfully graduated students receive the opportunity to work full-time in some of Bulgaria’s leading IT companies. By the project’s successful realization the transfer of professionals from one company to another is decreased. Brand new professionals are created instead. This way the Bulgarian developers are able to correctly predict their growth without being dependent on the labor market.
