Proshore Bootcamp 5th edition

How a mentorship program can kickstart software development careers

Struggling to break into the exciting world of software development? You're not alone. Many aspiring developers lack the practical experience employers crave. Here's where mentorship programs like Proshore Bootcamp can bridge the gap.

about Proshore Bootcamp

A mentorship program pairs aspiring professionals with experienced individuals who act as guides and advisors. Mentors offer valuable insights, share their expertise, and provide support and encouragement throughout the learning journey.

While traditional coding bootcamps and IT training courses offer valuable foundational knowledge, they often lack the real-world experience that’s crucial for landing a job in the software development industry. Mentorship programs are essentially shortcuts as they provide guided application of theory and a cheat sheet of mistakes to avoid.

Proshore’s premier mentorship program takes it a step further.

Proshore Bootcamp: Our vision

Since our inception in 2009, Proshore’s social mission has been to create sustainable and highly skilled jobs for the talented people in Nepal within Nepal. We strongly believe that the “war on talent” – the scarcity of highly skilled developers in the West and the abundant brain drain in Nepal, can be fought sustainably.

When repurposing our social mission to the grassroots level, Proshore Bootcamp was formed. The mentorship program aims to empower future IT talents of Nepal to kickstart successful IT careers. Helping promising talents enter the booming sector creates a ripple effect that in the long term contributes to creating “sustainable and highly-skilled jobs in Nepal”.

Proshore Bootcamp was born from our developers' struggles entering the industry. They lacked guidance, clarity on career paths, and understanding of how organizations work. We created the program to ensure this generation has a smoother journey.
