April 2018 – for the fifth consecutive year BULPROS and Chance for the Children of Bulgaria Foundation organized a traineeship for students. It was held in the company’s office from 02nd April to 5th April. The trainees had the opportunity to participate in two projects that allowed them to apply their knowledge, build up their skills, meet talented professionals and experience real business cases.
“We believe that the business needs to support the education and development of young IT talents and we were happy to share our practical knowledge with the students”, said Ivaylo Slavov, CEO of BULPROS.
Two dedicated teams of mentors shared valuable know-how, gave guidance and challenged the students during their work on the projects. The technical advisers Yavor Simeonov, Julian Paskov and Lubomir Bozhinov from the Web and Mobile Business Unit of BULPROS supported the trainees in the development of a mobile application – game for object recognition with voice. The technical mentors Stanislav Slavov and Philip Hristov from Intracol, a BULPROS company, guided the project completion of the second group in their task to develop an application for Meteorological Forecast by location. All the advisers shared their positive impressions of the students' competences and encouraged them to continue their development in the IT field.
"The event, organized together with and sponsored by BULPROS, aims to demonstrate a successful model of training: children learn the principles of teamwork, how to take creative decisions and adapt to the dynamics of everyday life and technology in the modern world. We sincerely thank the whole BULPROS team for this opportunity, the professional attitude and our long-lasting successful and productive collaboration”, Liliana Slavova, Chair of Chance for the Children of Bulgaria Foundation.
