dw-starrSholla Corporation VIP Open House was a successful community event that was held yesterday on Oct 29, 2016.

Established in 2007 with one room and a handful of students, so far, over 800 students have been graduated and got their dream jobs in the IT field.

Success Pathways, one of the organizing partner of the VIP Open House congratulates Sholla and its team, and other strategic partners who joined the event.

Owner of Success Pathways was asked to help Sholla launch soft skill workshops in an effort to equip technical professionals with the necessary soft skills that empower them to communicate, get along with diverse people from diverse cultures, resolve conflicts, and become effective team players, supervisors, managers, and leaders. Accordingly, Assegid and other professionals in the field plan to conduct 1 hour free workshops every week at Sholla. Those who are interested for 1-day or 2-days workshops will be given the opportunity to attend such intensive workshops.

More pics and vieo footages will soon be available…
