Part of our plan for uncovering tech talent here at Kloodle involves the recruitment of apprentices. We are currently hiring new web development apprentices (vacancy here), and as part of the process, we are using (yes, you guessed it) Kloodle!

When I was at school, apprenticeships had a bad rep. They were often stigmatised and avoided, categorised as a career route for the less academically able.

This was due to the perception I had that these people made copious amounts of money and strutted around in great suits. I fed the program the answers I thought it needed to […]
