Through TesteAR, Globant aims to offer more skilled personnel and increase employment opportunities by providing training in Software Manual Testing.
Last Monday August 27th, a small group of graduates made a presentation in front of a group of different companies to introduce TesteAR and explain what they had learned during training.
Companies like Atos and Pragma were very interested in hiring them as junior Manual Testers.
We believe this presentation was the first step to ensure jobs for the next TesteAR graduates.

During August, Globant´s Recruiting Team, organizes a Toy Drive in every city where Globant works. Once all the toys were collected, they went to several hospitals, orphanages or nonprofit organizations to spend the day giving gifts and playing with the kids.
Congratulations to Giuliana Marsili and all the Globant´s Recruiting Team for this initiative!

Once again, Globant CSR participated in the Garrahan Hospital’s blood drive campaign. On June 13th Globant received a team of nurses from the hospital and 29 Globers donated 25 blood units.
The best part about this blood drive was that more than 40 kids were able to benefit from the donations!

Starting this week, every Glober who has to travel from South Park to Laminar can use one of the new Globant’s new bicycles.

Sadosky Foundation and the Ministry of Science and Technology are running the program “Dale Aceptar” to wake up the vocation in youths to study technology or engineering.
Although the course is virtual; an essential part of this project is to have two classrooms learning about software systems in every public school, where volunteers teach about the fundamental concepts of the Alice program.
This program is replicated throughout Argentina, and more than 30 Globers have applied as volunteers.
At Globant we offer our geographical dispersion, so the opportunity to learn about software can reach more students across the country.
If you want to know more about the program, please write to email@example.com
