Why to study with us?
Do you want to start your career in IT or need help choosing the right direction?
We believe that women should work in IT and we are ready to do everything to help them. Since 2014, we have helped employ hundreds of women and created a community of more than 18 000 people who want to help us do just that. We send regular newsletters to our graduates, containing job offers, news about our courses and the IT market. In 2017, we received the National Career Guidance Award for our work, for which we are very grateful.
We help girls work on their self-esteem and motivation to give it a go, as well as advice on how to enter the IT world, what the most sought-after professions are and how to handle job interviews. In co-operation with our partners and coaches, we hold regular Soft-skills workshops in Prague and Brno, focusing on personal branding, IT trends, on creating successful CV’s and job interviews.
To boost your career progress, we have prepared individual career meetings with our coaches, Petra Drahoňovská in Prague and Monika Ptáčníková in Brno. They'll help you think through and map out your future career path and your personal values.
The outcome of the coaching is a “diagnostic mind map” serving as a lead to your further development. The coaches will also help you with your personal presentation - on job interviews or in life in general, with creating your CV, a LinkedIn profile as well as application letters. The length of the meetings, the time and the place will be arranged individually to suit your needs.

Stories we helped write
When we met Adela, she was 26 and she dreamt of being a graphic designer in the gaming business. She went through a number of Czechitas courses, including the intensive ones. Now she works in her dream field in one of the largest Czech companies. She got her chance.
"Right after the first course, I was hooked by the approach and the community itself. In the meantime, I realized what it was that I wanted to accomplish in IT. Thanks to Czechitas, I landed my dream job in the gaming business a couple of days ago."- Adéla Větrovcová
Běla went through our one-day HTML/CSS course and DataGirls. Then she decided to grab the chance and participated in our week-long tester course. Now she works as a software tester.
"Thanks to the Czechitas workshops, I got a full-time job in an IT company. Thank you for kick-starting my careeer. See you in one of your future courses!"- Běla Beránková
Michaela Kuchařová was one the participants in our Academy of Programming. Today, she works as a junior C# developer.
"I found Czechitas thanks to my friend and was instantly hooked by the concept. I have gone through several one-day and intensive courses and then started to coach other girls as well. I found myself in C# programming and the girls even helped me find a junior developer job."- Michaela Kuchařová
Veronika works in HR but she found out she enjoyed working with numbers much more. So she started programming in our courses and studying IT at the university.
"I took the C# course with Czechitas. Even though I did not know what to expect, I found out that programming could really be a fun thing to do. And that girls do belong in IT. I admire Czechitas’ constant support, the interest they take in other people’s opinions and their determination to change and improve things. It is only thanks to them I am now negotiating a job opportunity with an IT company."- Veronika R.
