Explore the Lifehack program
Omega 365 has introduced a new informative section on omega365.com, offering insights into the Lifehack Program, an initiative that serves to guide refugees and immigrants toward integration and training in basic programming skills.
Visitors to the new landing page can access essential information about the Lifehack Program, which is designed to facilitate the integration of newcomers into Norwegian society. This initiative also addresses the increasing demand for developers at Omega 365. The website features a video that provides a glimpse into the experiences of the participants and showcases their journey within the program.
In partnership with the Municipality of Stjørdal’s Integration Office, the Lifehack Program takes place at the Stjørdal Adult Education Center. The course, which is integrated with mandatory Norwegian language and culture classes, provides fundamental programming training to its participants.
Refugees and immigrants in Norway with an interest in IT development can explore the opportunity to become a “Lifehacker”. The new website guides visitors through the application process, emphasizing that prior programming experience is not required, but a spark of motivation and strong logic thinking skills are essential. In a recent presentation at Stjørdal, Lars Aas Kjebekk, Department Manager in Omega 365, expressed high praise for team leader and course holder Mohamad Jamil Mohamad.
“Lifehack aims to recruit developers and provide individuals with a fresh start. As a refugee himself, Mohamad understands the challenges these individuals face and is deeply committed to the project.”
For businesses interested in tapping into this pool of newly trained talent, the platform outlines the process of hiring a Lifehacker after their six months of training. Whether for a fixed-term or extended employment, hiring a Lifehacker contributes to the continuity and expansion of the Lifehack Program, creating opportunities for future participants.
