Alliance Software, Inc. Favors CIT University Computer Studies Graduates, Seeks to Fund Future IT and CS Students
Computer Studies graduates of CIT University are not only known to excel in academic competitions but are also recognized to perform well in the corporate arena. This is the reason why companies like Alliance Software, Inc. highly prefers to hire them to be a part of their strong and growing global IT services and solutions company. In fact, CIT University graduates constitute around 40% of their total manpower, and they continue to hire graduates and On-The-Job trainees every year.
CIT University and Alliance Software, Inc. started working together as early as 2008. Back then, the latter specified real-world problems for CS/IT students to work on for their theses and capstone projects. Engineers from the company together with CS/IT faculty members served as advisers to these capstone projects. The displayed ability of the students to create solutions to these real-world problems proved to be a very good indicator of the readiness of both students and graduates to work in the industry.
After working closely for 5 years, CIT and Alliance Software, Inc. signed a Memorandum of Agreement in 2013, strengthening further their established partnership and expanding the scope of collaborative activities. Since then, selected students would take the Summer Bridge Program as part of the OJT program of the College, and every second semester, selected classes would undergo the Near Hire Program – an elective program handled by both CCS faculty and Alliance Engineers. Aside from these, Alliance conducts regular campus recruitment giving job offers to CCS students even before graduation.
Starting June 2018, Alliance is planning to give scholarships to incoming IT and CS students who are CIT University Senior High graduates. As a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility, Alliance Software, Inc. will sponsor two students, thus, encouraging them to enroll in either of the two programs and to perform best in their education.
