Analyst at Avanade
Elena Cerbara, from Rome, is 27 years old and is studying to become a Cloud Platform Engineer. She is also a trainer at Fondazione Mondo Digitale for the Ambizione Italia project for young people: "I chose to become a trainer because I am convinced it is a good experience from a professional and personal point of view. You meet so many different people, you learn to work in a team and by teaching you never stop learning'.
Given her commitment and skill, FMD gave Elena the opportunity to follow an orientation course consisting of three sessions of one hour and thirty minutes each. The course enabled her to pass the interview test and be selected for a further 200-hour training course: the Experis Academy 'Cloud Platform Engineer', born from the collaboration with Microsoft Italia and Experis.
"It was Fondazione Mondo Digitale that pointed me out and made me take part in the orientation course, before that I didn't even know what Cloud Computing was. I studied at the Faculty of Mathematics, I took a few computer science exams, but it was not a subject I ever delved into. When I had the opportunity, I was fascinated and I am honoured to have been chosen for the Academy. I am sure that my wealth of experience and knowledge is growing day by day: step by step I am building my future'.
