Comments from NGP alumni
“What I especially liked about the NGP program was the fact that after a few weeks of introductions I was already working with customers. Learning from the experienced Sofigators was the best part in the beginning – it really was like jumping in at the deep end. But as the saying goes, ‘you learn by doing’ and I agree fully.
During the last year I have worked in two international companies as a project manager with various technologies, stakeholders, and tools. I’ve had the chance to roll out new implementations all over the world and learned the importance of communication.
If you dare to be brave and curious, NGP program can provide you an exquisite start for your consulting career in the technology field.”
“I cannot think of a better introduction to consulting than what I’ve gotten at Sofigate in the NGP program. I have been very pleasantly surprised at the amount, and especially the quality, of training that the first months of the program have consisted of. The resources Sofigate invests in you and your development is unlike anything I’ve experienced before.
Presentations, communication, technology concepts, strategy, service, everything you can imagine a consultant could need. Even if the trainings and customer projects have been at times very challenging and ambiguous by design, you can always count on your colleagues being the most encouraging and helpful people you could hope for. The professional yet approachable vibe you’ll get when you meet Sofigators is by no means a façade.“
”During the NGP program, I have been able to participate in many interesting training programs, I’ve gotten to work with amazing colleagues and also been part of various customer cases.
As someone who does not have an educational background in IT, I feel like the NGP program has been a great introduction to the world of Business Technology and has also served as a springboard to learn more.”
