Computer Science (CS) is experiencing an unprecedented exploding demand in the job market as our future will only be increasingly automated. This acts as an indicator of how vital computer science education is to the younger generation. However, we at Telebort found that most individuals with a Computer Science background do not prefer or are not interested in being involved in the educational field. Therefore, we decided to step in and be a part of the solution. We are seeking talents with a passion for teaching and a commitment to teaching students as young as 7 years old about the world of coding. We devoted ourselves so much to education technology (EdTech) because …
#1 If not us, then who?
We had a humble beginning. We started by approaching learning centers, primary and secondary schools to teach students about computer programming concepts for free. We did not stop exploring to develop suitable programs for our students by involving ourselves in teaching more classes. We only had our first class with 30 paying students in 2017, a year after our inception.
#2 Job security and career progression
Now that Telebort is 6 years old, we are grateful to say that our business model is expanding into new markets from overseas, such as Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Therefore, it is certain that we will be providing more job opportunities for cross-discipline talents, especially talents from CS, Marketing, Account, and so forth. Moreover, since we are moving into oversea markets shortly, you may have the chance to work cross-nationally where you can work with various people from diverse backgrounds and broaden your knowledge.
#3 Can you see the sparks in the students' eyes?
Teaching might be the most satisfying profession because teachers witness the students' growing process. They can see the sparks in the students' eyes when their curiosity is fed. The proudest moment that a CSguru could probably experience at Telebort is when they see how students utilize their knowledge from classes and combine their ideas with creativity to create unique projects of their own.
#4 You can learn, unlearn and relearn throughout the teaching process
Besides showcasing your knowledge in CS, being a CSguru teaches you the learn-unlearn-relearn process. First, you need to think of innovative ways to explain programming concepts to students as young as 7. Moreover, you will need to learn to manage students to ensure they can follow your pace and understand the lesson well. As a newbie CSguru at Telebort, you have to explore ways to conduct a class that works best for you. In the process of trial by error, you will constantly unlearn methods that do not work out and relearn the ways that can work well.
#5 You are making CS education more accessible to people
By being a part of the educators in CS, you are playing a role in making CS education more accessible to people. Most people assume that computer science is "not for me" because of the stereotype that programming is tedious and anti-socialize people. But that is certainly not the case! Therefore, with more people from different backgrounds and personalities joining us, we may overcome this barrier and further realize our belief that Everyone Can Code!
With these, we urge fresh grads, interns, and undergraduates of Computer Science to join us! Together, let's educate more young digital-makers-to-be!
