Enhance your business with a tech savvy Youth IT Careers graduate
George Sinis, Director at Inspired Printing, was looking to make changes in the way his business operated.
“My objective was to bring a traditional industry, like printing, into the 21st century,” he says.
George met someone from Infoxchange who introduced him to Youth IT Careers. A program that gives young people, who face significant barriers to employment, their first step towards an IT career.
Through the team, George was introduced to Marco. Marco had graduated from the Youth IT Careers program through Victoria Polytechnic and was looking to apply the tech skills he had developed in the workplace.
The team at Infoxchange supported Marco to secure his position at Inspired Printing, working with him to improve his resume and doing mock interview practice to ensure he made a good impression on George.
Marco has now been at Inspired Printing for over six months where he has helped to implement a unique software solution that has transformed their quoting process. What once took up to two hours, can now be done in a few minutes, which means customers are happier with the faster response time and the team at Inspired Printing have increased their capacity and focus.
George sees Marco as an important member of the Inspired Printing team.
“I would seriously encourage any business to consider taking on a trainee from the program. It’s an opportunity to not only support a young person in their career, but also to develop the capabilities within your business.” George says.
For Marco, Youth IT Careers has helped him to become more financially independent and pursue his career goals. ‘
“Youth IT Careers changed my life,” he says. Marco is looking forward to continuing his work at Inspired Printing and is keen to develop more advanced IT skills to support the team.
Taking on a Youth IT Careers graduate is a win-win situation.
