RevStar Consulting CEO Ken Pomella hates to hear the phrase “We don’t have the tech talent” when it comes to Tampa Bay. RevStar Consulting is a cloud-native solutions development firm based here in Tampa Bay. “No one is bridging the gap between what colleges are teaching and the workforce’s expectations. My goal is to help them learn which technologies are employable as opposed to teaching them about what’s in the standard school curriculum.” With the many different types of coding languages, frameworks, and cloud platforms, having someone who knows what technology companies are looking for from a business perspective and understands the technical aspects required from employees is invaluable to students just out of college.
“Not only is it exposing them to what’s out there, but giving them tangible advice on how to learn it, as well as being available to answer questions related to what they’re learning and providing support for their journey. One of the things I ask those I mentor to work on is a business sample case. This allows them to build something practical and to beef up their online portfolio.” Ken went on to tell us, “I try to take a holistic approach by providing value to my mentee. Being able to build and solve an actual business problem provides them an example of what types of expertise will be expected and provides a deeper understanding of the value they can offer to a company.”
We are appreciative of the work Ken is doing here in Tampa Bay whether mentoring students entering the workforce or some of the businesses or startups like 4&Co here in Tampa. RevStar Consulting is working hard to #ElevateTampa
