Recently, a group of Ranken Technical College’s web development students visited Unidev and The Net Impact’s office to learn more about our process of business. The students viewed short presentations of the projects we have worked on and what they entail. We hoped to give the students a good understanding of how their Ranken education will help them in the “real world”.

Ranken Technical College is a private, non-profit institution of higher education. Throughout its long history as a St. Louis College and trade school, Ranken has been an excellent training and educational center for professionals looking to start or advance in their careers. The students who visited The Net Impact’s office are concentrating their studies in the areas of: HTML/CSS/Javascript, Java, C#, ASP.NET and SQL.

We hope the Ranken students left The Net Impact with a better understanding of what a career in the field of Technology requires in today’s world. Our presentations highlighted the importance of continued education and certifications, off hour’s engagement, networking, and most importantly, that fact that you really need to have a passion for technology, in order to be successful in the ever-growing and competitive field. Thanks to everyone at Ranken for taking the time to visit our office, we hope you enjoyed the visit as much as we did!
