Our latest effort in that direction was a visit to „St.Clement of Ohrid” high school where a few members of our team carried out a meeting with students from 8th grade who major in informatics with English language.

 

The purpose of our visit was not just educational but also practical,aiming to provide the youngsters with essential information related with the IT business. The young people had the opportunity to hear and learn about what an IT company actually is, about the qualities and qualifications needed to become a part of such team, and as well discover key points related with the current state of the educational system and the labor market in Bulgaria.

 

Our team members had a friendly discussion with the students on a few topics that concern their near-future education and professional realization afterwards. We emphasized on today’s urgent need for everyone to study English and at least one more foreign language in addition in order to be eligible on the competitive labor market. We really wanted to help the youngsters realize that grades and diplomas are far from enough in case they dream of developing a good career and being successful. Still, we aimed to explain in simple words that education is also really important for achieving that goal, and especially its practical form. We encouraged the students to follow their own talent and interests, trying to do whatever makes them the happiest in life.

 

TSD once again showed support to those young people who have the ambition to be part of the challenging IT world, letting them know we would always be there to guide them if necessary. We are happy to note that the students appeared intrigued by the received information and the presented perspective.

TSD Hosted Students from Pleven, Taking Them into the Real IT World

TSD has recently taken a new step as a part of our politics to be socially active and make effort to improve the so vital relation between the educational system and the actual labor market in the country. We have had several successful attempts so far, providing young people with knowledge in information technology directly from „the source”. This time we decided to point our attention toward a bit younger audience, 4th graders from the school „Ivan Vazov” in Pleven, who, despite their early age, are currently studying information technology and C++ in particular.

Our team was glad to have the 23 pupils in our Troyan office and show them the real IT working environment. The students were fascinated by our office after we made a short tour around and also intrigued by the ongoing working process activities. We were really pleased to see all those curious faces which surely cheered up our work routine. But most of all, we were glad to be able to grant them useful information and arouse their interest in studying computer science further.

Our CEO invited the pupils in his office where he made a short presentation of the company and some of our activities such as our social and educational involvement, our main working lines and our business trips. The students had the chance to take a look at pictures from different forums we have visited and fun stuff we have done together, as well as videos from our team building games. They seemed quite excited, asking questions all the time and our host team had to split up into groups to be able to answer all of them.

The visit ended with a small treat for everyone followed by some photos. In the end we were charged with positive energy and also satisfied that the mission of their introduction to the IT world was accomplished, and what is most important, they left motivated to gain further knowledge.

Dear pupils, TSD wishes you good luck through the long journey of information technology that you are embarking into!

Special Visit at TSD by the Mayor of Municipality Troyan

TSD Services’ team was happy to meet the mayor Mrs. Donka Mihaylova at our office premises in Troyan.

We managed to draw the mayor’s attention after winning our first award – Top ICT Employer of 2016. She especially congratulated us with an “Achievement Congratulation” certificate signed by herself.

The mayor expressed her satisfaction with the presence of a company like ours in the large town of Troyan. She hopes that more firms in this industry will appear on the horizon in the near future, which will help the Municipality retain the young and high-qualified people in Troyan. Our CEO  German Gachevski mentioned that there already is such a company in town, which works in the IT field, but is still young and small-sized.

So there is hope for the future of our young IT specialists, who decide to remain and realize their careers in Troyan.

At the end of the meeting the mayor clearly stated her willingness to help and support TSD in any possible way. Our team will continue contributing to our society and will be more than happy to work with the municipality in achieving even greater results in the future.

A New Collaboration is Starting

TSD is glad to announce the start of a new collaboration with Vasil Levski High School in Troyan.

The school initiated the beginning of a new class in information technologies which is meant to correspond with the latest needs and requirements of the IT field in Bulgaria and specifically in Troyan. TSD’s team embraces the idea and will help the initiative with no reservations.

Our team will take part in the new collaboration by helping with the creation of a suitable study program, which will include knowledge of the latest software products used in contemporary IT sector. TSD will also conduct teacher trainings and most importantly will provide an internship program, where the future potential IT specialists will get in touch with the actual working process and IT environment.

The main target of the collaboration is to give the young high-qualified people in Troyan the opportunity to realize their careers on a domestic level.

We all hope that this initiative will limit, to a certain degree, the migration of our most talented young people.
