Ubisoft IT Welcomes Its First Operation Spark Graduate
Operation Spark is a nonprofit coding bootcamp in New Orleans that provides opportunities for upward mobility through skills training and job placement in high-wage tech careers. Generational poverty is an issue for many in New Orleans, and Operation Spark provides access to tuition assistance, grants, and academic and social support to students who need additional help. These days, Operation Spark is seeing an increase in participants who lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 lockdown and are ready to retrain for new a career in tech – and IT developer Miguel Peter is the first graduate of the program to join Ubisoft
When Ubisoft came to New Orleans last year to (virtually) present career opportunities in IT to Operation Spark’s students, Peter, who had recently graduated the program, immediately applied.
“Ubisoft is such a huge company,” Peter says.
