“Being a part of the Graduate Program at Planit has been the perfect first step in my testing career. Training, support and challenging work is exactly what a student fresh out of University needs and is what Planit has been able to provide.
"Milestones were set up to monitor progress and help growth. This is especially important as consultants where problems or concerns faced at a client site could be discussed and resolutions derived. Long term goals are created with the help of assigned buddies so that our career development is continued after moving on from the Graduate Tester role.
