A Win-Win for Our Workforce: TXITTrevor Hendricks
Community Citizenship is one of the 6 Diamond Disciplines TyRex values most, and through a successful apprenticeship program in partnership with Austin Community College (ACC), we’re striving to take our citizenship to the next level.
Saber Data has worked with Austin Community College in various capacities over the years. The TXIT (Texas is IT) program launched by ACC, with a grant from the Department of Labor gave us the opportunity to meet Gloria Walls, a student in the Baccalaureate Program who was looking for an Apprenticeship. Gloria joined the Saber Data team and excelled in every project that was assigned to her. When Gloria’s terms of the apprenticeship program were completed, she was onboarded into Saber Data and the larger TyRex Family as a Full-Time Software Developer.
Gloria was recognized by ACC at the TXIT Recognition event as the second student to have completed the apprenticeship and having joined the company where she successfully completed her apprenticeship. Saber Data was recognized by ACC as one of the key organizations for having supported the TXIT apprenticeship program and having hired one of their program students. We are very proud of Gloria!
We appreciate ACC for teaching and training students, and also for providing programs such as TXIT that allow students the opportunity to be brought in and given the chance to grow within companies like ours.
“Working with ACC is very convenient and effective! They have a dedicated team for the TXIT/Apprentice program that screens professional backgrounds and provides you with a qualifying list of candidates based on your preferred requirements. Thanks to the ACC and the TXIT Apprentice program, Gloria was able to improve her skill set and advance her career while our Software Development and IT department was introduced to an outstanding individual who’s a great asset and an excellent fit for our company’s culture. A win-win solution!”Satwinder Kahlon, President Saber Data
