As Volano continues to grow, recruiting talent has become critical. Beyond lining up skillsets, we’re always on the hunt for people that fit the culture and add something to it as well. Our developers work directly with our clients so it is also important that our people interface well with the very people who will use the software that we create. Strong dart throwing skills can be developed at Volano fortunately.
Finding good software developers is tough these days in Omaha as many employers and recruiters will tell you. That’s why we’re striking up partnerships with local colleges and technical institutions. This morning Volano co-owner Rod Smith and I had the pleasure to meet with Nancy Hewitt, the Director of Career Services with ITT Technical Institute. Looks like a nice opportunity for us to meet potential hot-shot developers in the making and ITT can deliver on its mission to help place students in the job market.
We learned a lot. Nancy and her team help place upwards of 80% of students shortly after they graduate. ITT’s new facility by Westroads was impressive and I was surprised to see that their instruction included nursing and law enforcement. We heard inspiring stories about the lengths some students go to complete their education and are looking forward to getting in front of students. We’ll be meeting with UNO Monday. Somewhere out there is a talented kid who likes to code and may be a catalyst here.
