IT industry in Wroclaw

IT industry is a big piece of Wroclaw economy

Wroc-love IT industry

The IT industry in Wroclaw needs more and more people. Many companies, thanks to low costs and well-qualified employees, have decided to open a business in Poland. Wroclaw is a city that is very friendly to employees in the IT industry.

How to get a job in the IT industry in Wroclaw

In Poland, we have a so-called “employee market”. This means that employees have no major problems finding a job. Employers must themselves seek for an employee. In the IT industry in Wroclaw, this is particularly evident because many IT companies have chosen this place for their headquarters. In addition, many older people are afraid of working in the IT industry. This has meant that some companies, such as NOKIA, have created their own programming program – they invite their new employees to it and pay them for learning during the first two months of work!

How to start?

Well, it’s best if you already have experience in the IT industry. If this case, you can probably start working immediately in a position that you know the most about. The IT industry in Wrocław is looking for many front-developers and end-developers as well as IT specialists to maintain systems. If you do not know much about programming or fiber optics, do not worry :). You don’t have to study for 5 years at the Polytechnic to find employment in the IT industry. Often IT companies will teach you everything themselves. If you want to increase your chances of recruitment, it is worth signing up for a monthly, intensive course of one of the programming languages. The IT industry in Wroclaw is looking for specialists who know C ++, Java, Python, SQL. Such courses can often be found on online platforms (Coursera, Futurelearn etc.).

Not only the biggest ones

The IT industry in Wroclaw is a lot of big companies, but also small ones, sometimes one-person ones. They often start like my friend’s story: She had a good idea, she wanted to create a small application. She hasn’t any IT experience, so she decided to meet an IT worker. He helped her to create a new application for the phone, and now both can collect profits.

The IT industry in Wroclaw is also responsible for the fact that many companies from other industries are largely automated. It’s not only about aviation, automotive, but also, for example, law firms. Thanks to which they can bring higher profits. The IT market is constantly growing, and more people from the IT industry moving to Wroclaw have no problem finding a well-paid job.

How to find a house, school and job in Wroclaw

 

How to find a house

If you are from Korea and in Wroclaw for the first time you will find house first. Also  if you have children you will find the school for them. Most of all you may need to find a job. I will tell you about them, which is based on my exprience. Whenever your going meets some blocks, don’t hesitate anyone who can help you. One of helpers can be a korean association in Wroclaw “Http//:www.poland.koren.net”

For the first place, How to find house in Wroclaw

There are several engins for seeking rental and buying house. I recommend to visit “www.otodom.pl”. It is very useful. You can find the house which you are satisfied with. Another way is to ask acquaintance to help you so they will give you a good information or help you with communicating with local people. Your helpers will interpret for you or translate polish in korea or English. But most people from Poland who you meet can speak English and only a few  can’t speak English. I think if you are a expat language skill is very important to accomplish your mission. Language is like a tram, which will ride you to a place where you want.

The second place, How to find school in Wroclaw

After you find your house you will find the school near your house. Primary schools have got named numbers. In my case my children go to 64school.  I recommend local school. If you start your life in Wroclaw you and your family need to learn the culture of Poland and get along with local friends. I think that it is very useful and important.  When your children apply for local school the school will welcome.

The third, I will tell you how to find a job

It will be very difficult to you if you do not apply for korean company in Wroclaw. If you are in Poland for the first time, it takes very long time to get a job in Wroclaw. You can consider that you try to work in company which korean runs in Wroclaw. Or you can start a small business in which you are interested. This means you have to go a self-employed. I think I prefer this way to stay in Wroclaw.
