What is a Codence
Codence works with its clients to launch careers and better support their use of technology. We engage students, but often non-traditional candidates as well, as apprentices to learn Claris and other technologies, software development, and consulting practices. It’s an inspiring program that provides matchmaking and support for sponsoring clients and individuals.
In a nutshell, we manage a recruiting and training curriculum during what is typically a 12-week program, after which we all intend that the sponsoring client may extend a permanent position to an apprentice should they choose to.
Goals of the Program
Our experience is that this is a win-win for clients and apprentices both. The apprentice gets real-world experience, training from a professional organization, and an introduction to a possible new job.
Our clients have the opportunity to hire someone to help drive technology needs, who can both serve as an internal resource, and who has strong ties and familiarity with Codence. This is a significantly lower-risk way to hire: the best way to get to know someone is to work with them — this gives everyone a chance to try it out. Secondly, our clients gain a capacity with software projects without having to depend solely on us as a third party.
