What Is the Nearsoft’s Academy Program?
The Nearsoft Academy is a program for college seniors and recent graduates. It’s an opportunity for talented students to learn from seasoned software engineers.
Our aim is to turn recent graduates into world-class software engineers in six months.
One Intern at a Time
Nearsoft’s noble goal is to create a competitive software development ecosystem in Latin America. We contribute to this vision by training the software developers of the future, today.
Young and talented software engineering students find a home at Nearsoft to grow and learn, then go outside and pursue greater heights.
1.- Reset their mindset
We begin by resetting the Nearsoft Academy participants’ mindset so they can develop teamwork, commitment and look beyond what they learned on school.
Interns are assigned together to work in projects. This phase is designed to teach them how to work as a self-managed unit.
3.- Open Source
Another focal point is to remind them it is important to contribute to the Open Source Community. It’s a win-win, while supporting others, they get to add worthy entries to their own resume.
4. Your Personal Brand
During this stage, interns improve their communication skills. We help them to build their resume. We set mock-up interviews to see if they’re ready to get a job or there’s any feedback to apply.
5.- Real Clients & Users
The real world is up next, a real client or project. This can mean a Nearsoft client, an internal product from Nearsoft Labs or an external project.
After the Academy, you will learn:
- To program in any language
