Get an Early Career Advantage

TechBee is a pathway for high school students interested in a career in the technology sector. Selected candidates undergo three months of Foundation Skilling. After successful completion, learners take HCLTech’s Career Aptitude test, which is the entry point to TechBee. The program provides opportunities to pursue full-time jobs with HCLTech upon completing a part-time paid internship.

Overview

Why be a TechBee?

A lifetime of learning

TechBee is just the start of your tech learning adventure. Your next step could be an HCLTech-supported university degree.

Great job prospects

There’s a worldwide shortage of people with technology skills. Complete our TechBee Program and you’ll have plenty of job opportunities to choose from.

Celebrate diversity

With our presence in many countries and our large global workforce representing numerous nationalities, we celebrate diversity every day.

Be part of our global family

We know we’re better together. We encourage our people to collaborate, take smart risks, experiment and lead their ideas to execution in an inclusive and innovative environment.

What Happens When You Join the Program?

If you are offered a place in the program, the first three months are about building your foundation skills. Modules include IT Essentials, Business Ethics and Business Communications.

The next nine months start with a Career Aptitude test and, if successful, you are offered a part-time paid internship that involves on-the-job learning and stream-specific training. During your internship you will gain practical work experience, often in a client environment.

Upon successful completion of the TechBee program, you move into a full-time entry level role at HCLTech Australia, and if you’d like to pursue higher education, we can financially support you to do this on a part-time basis.

I really wanted to join the TechBee Program of HCLTech to get a foot in the door of an IT career at an early age, because it really helped me secure a good position and get better jobs quicker and also increase my knowledge base.

My experience with the TechBee Program of HCLTech has been really good. I am really enjoying the hands-on aspect of it as compared to university which is much more theoretical. Being able to contact the tutors outside of our training sessions has been really helpful and it’s really helping me in coding and developing.

I joined the TechBee Program of HCLTech as this is a great opportunity to enter the workforce at an early stage. The program gives practical hands-on training which prepares us for the real world. It is also a great opportunity to become financially independent while still studying at university.

The TechBee program of HCLTech was an exciting program. We learnt something new every single day thanks to the hybrid training program where we would develop theoretical stuff and apply it to real-life scenarios. The training was well constructed alongside the material. The program is flexible and it prioritizes our studies alongside training work. Additionally, it allows us to become financially independent.

I had no background in IT and no prior knowledge from schooling as well. I really learned a lot from the trainers because it was hands-on. I can see that the future is IT and I knew that I would get my breakthrough at HCLTech.
