From student to software developer. Meet Zachary.
Awesome ICE Malta alumni are easy to spot. They have a sparkle in their eyes, their face lights up as they excitedly share their career aspirations and reveal their dream of transforming their passion into a profession. They are 100% committed to their learning journey and enrol for one course after another gaining the practical industry skills and worldwide recognised certifications which are crucial. They curiously question every theory that is presented to them and they dedicate endless hours to perfect their craft, climb the career ladder and make us proud.
Zachary Desira is a fine example of an awesome ICE Malta Alumni. A couple of months back, he was handpicked by KPMG Software as a Junior Software Developer. He started his adventure at ICE Malta by enrolling for the Cisco IT Essentials course and continued with the Cisco CCNA Routing & Switching course followed by the MySuccess Website Designer Associate study programme. Zachary continues to prove that versatility is crucial. While he has selected his preferred path he continues to explore a variety of code, creative and technical study programmes which position him as an excellent all-rounder and an essential addition to KPMG Software
