From data newbie to Bitmetric business intelligence consultant , all with the Academic Program. 

As you may remember we announced the winners of our 2022 Qlik Academic Program Datathon back in May, Thomas De Dobbeleer and Rutger Mols won with an impressive app that focused on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 

We run this challenge to give students the opportunity to showcase their Qlik Sense and data analytics skills. We always hope that students can learn from the Datathon and apply those skills to the future workplace, or that by taking part in the Datathon they have something extra to add to their CV. We are so excited to hear about where 2022 winners take their careers after their win! But in the meantime, we have put together a success story about our winner from 2021 - Jesse van Haasteren.

Our story is all about how Jesse registered with our free Academic Program as a complete newbie to data analytics. Using our free training resources he prepared himself to compete, and later win, in the 2021 Datathon.  His enrollment on the program and subsequent Datathon win, helped to secure him an amazing job offer with Bitmetric. In his own words, “The Qlik Academic Program played a big role in getting me started in formulating data. It gave me the confidence to use the data analytics tools effectively and enter an exciting data-driven workspace”.
