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 joined the TechBee program of HCLTech because I thought that it was a great opportunity for me to learn something new and progress in my career whilst also becoming financially independent. For a person with no background in IT, the courses were easy to progress over and the trainers also helped us understand the concepts we had trouble with.

I think school leavers should join the TechBee program of HCLTech because it's a good opportunity for them to develop professional skills, industry standard skills and gain experience which in turn will help them build a good foundation for building their career.

I had a lot of fun learning the professional and technical part of the TechBee program of HCLTech. In the professional part, they teach you how to transition from school/university into work life and in the technical part, I got introduced to coding. I think the school leavers should join this because it gives a really good insight into the tech world.
