All talents have their place at Sully Group
At the end of 2021, we joined the association Numéric Emploi Grand Est which offers a support system for people looking for a job or a retraining in the digital industry.
Thibaut PALMA, developer, joined the PHP team of the Strasbourg agency thanks to this collaboration. He agreed to answer a few questions and tell us about his experience with Numéric Emploi Grand Est (a testimonial that you can find in video).
In 2007, I switched to IT after my studies in the audiovisual field. I became a system and network administrator in the IT department of a French multinational and then a project manager in IT development.
I left my former company having realized that being a project manager was not for me. I decided to reorient myself once again, this time in a very similar field: development. I have always "known" how to develop, as computers have always been a passion for me, but it wasn't until I was 38 years old that I realized I could make it my profession.
So I started to train myself, first in a general way, then more specifically despite the context of the pandemic and its difficulties. I trained on PHP, a language that I knew well, including professionally, since I had developed several applications and could justify an experience. The only problem was that by the time I could do all this, it had been almost 3 years since my previous job, and it was becoming vital to find a job, as I was almost at the end of my resources. This pressure made me royally fail every interview I got.
I was desperate to find a job that would give a chance to an atypical profile like mine. And I was simply desperate to find a developer position. While visiting a digital job fair, I signed up for a "career guidance session" that was offered.
The session was an interview with a digital professional giving various advice in "digital retraining". Following this exchange, a nudge message on LinkedIn was posted and the next day, Elodie in charge of business at Sully Group contacted me for the position I was waiting for. One week and three interviews later, I was hired!
The dream! I'm finally doing a job that I really like, I'm learning every day and I'm proud to work here. I really feel at home in Sully!
