Actively manage your career

with the ITGilde Career patch

The knowledge and skills that were sufficient to perform a job for years, can now be falling behind. And if not now, then most likely in the near future in this ever changing world.

So what do you do as an ICT Professional: waiting for your skills to become absolutely outdated and useless, and loose your job?
Or, will you follow your curiosity, explore options and pro-actively take steps in developing your professional career?

Ideally you take action and be at the steering wheel of your professional career right? However, we know how this works…. It seems not a priority right now.
But you are wrong: Career management should be a high priority!

Increase your career opportunities

Technology and businesses are changing rapidly and it is important to change along. And if you start thinking about your skills and capabilities only at the moment you are searching for a new adventure, your options can be very, very limited.

So if you want to be ready for opportunities in the future, consider your career development like software development, and patch your career to prepare yourself for the release of an interesting career.

How ITGilde Career Patch helps you

Patch management is serious business. It is often mistakenly assumed by IT management that administrators ‘can do that on the side’. But in practice, these type of actions get lost due to work pressure, production disrupting incidents and other administrator activities.

This could be the same for your professional life: there is little room for reflection and action to actively plan your career.

That is why we offer the ITGilde Career Patch. It’s like a software patch with a twofold purpose:

  1. Provide insight into the current state of vulnerabilities in your career.
  2. Create an up-to-date resume, which makes your knowledge and skills compliant with today’s requirements.

Determining your career patch

The interview

The career patch starts with determining the current status of your knowledge and skills. We do this by means of a patch interview in which we map out the (potential) issues that play a role in your career, resulting in an issue log.

In this analysis we not only appreciate the hard skills you master, we also look at the soft skills. After all, in addition to an up-to-date knowledge level, the modern IT professional must be able to sell himself well, create his own network and know how to handle the personal skills that are required in the working environment.

In the patch interview, you will gain insight into the state of affairs of the operational version of your personal operating system, and you will have an issue log containing the issues that play a role in your IT knowledge and skills.

The second step is to prepare a patch list together with you. The order of the patches is determined by assessing how critical the vulnerabilities are. So the critical patches first and then the additional fixes.
