Software Developer Profile
Yassir's career as an FDM Java Developer
"I first found out about FDM through a graduate fair at university and what initially attracted me was companies impressive blue-chip client base. After I graduated, I realised that holding a degree was not enough to kickstart a career in I.T. I was lacking skills currently being used in industry and this is exactly what the training at FDM provided me with.
The environment was very professional and there were trainers ready to help me with anything from exams to holding practice interviews for upcoming roles.
Some of the technologies I was taught include:
- UNIX and BASH scripting
- Java SE and EE
- Junit Testing
- Spring Framework
FDM also gave me soft skills so that I could master interview techniques and transition smoothly into the ‘working world’.
After training, FDM placed me with Barclays in Canary Wharf. My role here involves:
- Software development for SAP systems
- Web DynPro component design
- Master Data Management
I really enjoy working in one of the most developed financial districts and that too for one of the biggest banks in the world.
All in all, I came to kickstart a career in I.T and got exactly that, thanks to FDM!"
