Three recent graduates from the College of Information Technology at Georgia Southern University have joined the consulting firm BravePoint, where, as new employees, they are first-time participants in a special training program.
Kenneth Fannon from Hinesville, Brandon Lockett from Eastman and Lavonna Mitchell from Duluth received bachelor’s degrees in information technology in May.
Currently, they are participating in BravePoint Boot Camp, eight weeks of training to groom students in providing consultation services to clients using Progress software and technologies.
According to Greg Beck, technical manager for BravePoint, “Progress technologies can be used to develop Web-based, character and rich, graphical applications that can access Progress, Oracleor SQL Server databases.”
He further noted these technologies are used in a variety of sectors including retailing, banking and manufacturing.
BravePoint president John Harlow said he was pleased to hire the Georgia Southern graduates.
“As a member of CIT’s advisory board, I know they received an excellent foundation in information technology. The college has a reputation as a leading institution in preparing its graduates for the workplace,” Harlow said. “Now, we need to give them the experience in Progress to enable them to develop applications for our clients.”
BravePoint, headquartered in Atlanta, is an IT Services company that specializes in applying technology to improve customers’ profitability and competitiveness. They have been successful at this for over 20 years because the company is composed of business people who understand technology.
