IT Bachelor of Applied Science Graduate: New Tableau Software Hire

IT BAS Bogdan Pshonyak GRCCCheck out Green River College’s IT Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) student success story about Bogdan Pshonyak’s experience and success in the college’s Web & Mobile Developer program.

Green River Grad Bogdan Pshonyak Lands Role at Tableau Software

Bogdan recently completed his BAS in Software Development, was a two-time National Science Foundation scholarship recipient, and worked a help desk job on campus for as long as I can remember. Diploma fresh in hand, he’s now working as a software engineer at Tableau Software—more proof community colleges present a compelling solution for helping regional tech grow and diversify its workforce.

A big kudos goes to Ken Hang, programming faculty/chair for Green River’s BAS Software Development program, who was instrumental in helping Bogdan secure a seat at the Washington Technology Industry Association’s (WTIA) “Training Camp + Draft Day,” an innovative hiring workshop that pairs students from schools outside of the traditional computer science establishment with local tech companies. Bogdan and 5 other Green River BAS-SD students attended the workshop, the most of any participating college.

Thanks to Andy Orr, Program Manager, BAS in Software Development, at Green River College for this wonderful example of how IT BAS Washington State Community and Technical College graduates are highly employable in our state’s IT industry.
