In this fresh decade, we’re learning by any means necessary.

With the nature of business and work forever changing, often at the speed of a software update, it’s key that we carry a posture of lifelong learning. This is where the process of learning is open-ended and continuous, with the ability to enhance one’s skills at any point along one’s career.

As such, in contributing to the skills demand created by the 4th Industrial Revolution, we run a graduate programme that prepares Information Technology entrants for work in the real business world and then offer them support to gain experience.

For years now, from developers to project managers, Salesforce has proven itself as one of the most valuable skills for IT and business professionals to learn and continues to be highly sought by leading employers across different sectors.

With the continuous application of Customer Relationship Management systems in different industries, companies and other sorts of organisations are becoming interested in hiring professionals competent in the Salesforce domain.

Certifying our graduates in Salesforce Development and Administration places them in the top shelf in industry pickings. The value of Salesforce is that it’s the Number 1 CRM platform that delivers world-class business solutions through a cloud infrastructure. The nature of globalisation and the need for people and businesses to collaborate on a bigger scale, increasingly in different time zones, means being trained on cloud technology is a necessity for any graduate heading into the modern working world.

Salesforce is also a complementary skill alongside other IT skills that involve a significant amount of programming, including SQL, Java, Oracle and JavaScript, among others.

By providing training at this level, the program helps a lot with bridging the skills gap. A gap that often results in high unemployment rates. Widespread unemployment hurts the availability of growth opportunities for the youth. The need for a competitive skill such as Salesforce allows a young person who might not have had a fighting chance in a boardroom to be able to build and present their value, in the shortest time possible. More so as the nature of business continues to change and move towards digital at a dizzying speed.

Think about the fact that (traditional) learning methods have always taken too long to package and deliver. The moment the curriculum is drafted and taught, the world has changed again in many ways. This is part of the reason some companies are choosing to re-skill their existing, often older employees, instead of hiring recent graduates.

And right in the middle of that challenge is where the Quarphix Graduate Program exists. We live to bridge knowledge and work experience gaps between new IT industry players and the world of business. Our values: being and , play a big role in driving the work we do around building strong communities and thus encouraging the development of young black females within the ICT sector.

Our Graduate Program offers the benefit of learning skills that are currently in demand. Several professional Salesforce certification courses are available to polish up your skills to suit the field you work in. That’s why learning through our graduate program will go a long way in boosting your career and showcase your competencies in a totally different way.

The ultimate benefit from the program is the guarantee of job placements right after the trainees successfully complete their course. This is to provide the platform for them to grow further by contributing to the mainstream economy through their skills.

As employees rethink their career paths over the following decade, so are employers seeking to reinvent their businesses and remain competitive within their respective industries. Our graduate program provides the opportunity to add to your skills cabinet and pave the way for high-growth jobs.

If you think you could benefit from the program, there are just four requirements to be met:

You’ll need to have studied and passed (pure) Mathematics in matric.
Physical Science is advantageous.
Completed either a National Diploma or undergraduate degree (IT) in the last 2 years from a recognised higher learning institution.
Have an outstanding academic record.
