EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Creek Software Services, a United States-based IT consulting and technical services company specializing in Oracle CRM, business intelligence and enterprise software development, expands its Career Development Program, a highly targeted recruiting, training and career development process designed to attract and train qualified candidates and fully embed them into the company.
As part of the recruitment process, Eagle Creek works with regional colleges, professors, career centers, job boards and media outlets to identify potential candidates. Approximately 90 percent of the recruits are new college graduates with Computer Science, MIS, CIS or computer-related degrees. The program capitalizes on the public-private strategic alliance between the company and the state governments of North Dakota and South Dakota to help train and recruit the company’s consultants to these states.
Once selected, each recruit is assigned to highly specialized training courses depending on his/her specific track in the areas of Oracle CRM, business intelligence or enterprise software development. The goal of the 9-12 month program is to create true experts within their respective domains.
The program is divided into three phases. Phase one is a 1-2 month orientation that develops the recruit’s software consulting skills. Phase two, which lasts approximately 1-3 months, focuses on more specific technical and consulting competencies as it directly relates to their future area of expertise. Phase three lasts up to 6 months and is hands on where the recruit shadows an Eagle Creek consultant to gain insight on best practices and lessons learned from customer engagements. When recruits graduate from this extensive program, they become qualified as Eagle Creek consultants.
“Eagle Creek’s Career Development Program is designed to develop qualified, highly skilled consultants for the global enterprise to address the IT skills shortages in the industry,” said Ken Behrendt, president of Eagle Creek. “Clients turn to Eagle Creek when they need to overcome qualitative resource challenges from offshore suppliers as well as needing a solution for the availability and cost challenges prevalent in the onsite delivery model.“
