One Approach to Improving Your Talent Pipeline
By: Eric Potter
Software teams are constantly faced with the challenge of finding the right talent. One way to approach this problem is to get involved with a software department at a local university. For the past 10 years, I've had the opportunity to teach as an adjunct professor at a local university. When I started, I correctly assumed that I would enjoy it. But at that time, I didn't understand how it would benefit Aptera. At first, I was concerned that teaching might conflict with some of my other professional goals, but what I have learned is that it has been an asset both to me individually and to Aptera. The biggest benefit to the company is that we are doing our part to increase the size and quality of our local talent pool.

One of our current interns is a developer named Hannah, another one of my former students. She has already started adding value to our team and I'm confident that when she starts full time, her contributions will continue to grow. I'm excited to see the cool solutions she will build in the years to come.
