Core Skills Project is an initiative of the Association aimed to form key requirements for Junior-specialists in the IT-industry. The area of information technology is developing so rapidly that educational institutions do not have time to meet the demands and needs of the market.
A demand for building a career in IT among young people grows every year. The industry offers a relatively high salary level for beginners - according to a recent study by DOU, the average salary of a Junior-tester is $ 400, Junior-developer - $ 550. According to experts of IT Ukraine Association's member-companies, a list of standardized requirements will help young professionals to prepare for work on commercial projects so companies will not spend several months on their training.
Within the conference "Synergy: Business and Higher Education", member-companies of IT Ukraine Association presented a unified list of requirements and recommendations for junior-level specialists. The list covers three most popular and demanded IT-specializations - Software Developer (for JS, .net, Java), Software Test Automation Engineer, Software Testing Engineer.
Thus, the IT-service industry was the first in Ukraine to develop unified requirements for professionals who are just starting their careers in the industry.
