Mark Zuckerberg’s company announced the launch of a new program. To whom is it directed?
Meta announced the launch of the training program “Meta Spark en Argentina”aimed at young people between 18 and 35 years without prior knowledge with the intention of increasing their knowledge in the use of 3D tools and programming in the metaverse.
Through this proposal, the company Mark Zuckerberg seeks to become a bridge for the new generations to join the emerging labor market.
The course will last six months and will train more than 700 young people from the provinces of Buenos Aires, Chaco, Chubut, Entre Ríos, Misiones and Santa Fe.
With the support of the Ministry of Public Innovation, young people will receive workshops based on a learning path predefined by Meta and Puerta 18 so that they become experts and access new economic opportunities.
Students at all levels will be offered the opportunity to have mentors assist them in preparing to take the certification exam.
The total amount that will be invested by the technology company will be greater than the 50 thousand dollars and they will be used for scholarships for students who wish to obtain the Meta Spark Studio certification, the company’s platform that allows the creation of Augmented Reality (AR) effects.
The initiative will be face-to-face and virtual, it was segmented into 4 stages and will be carried out through Meta Blueprint,a platform that offers online learning courses, training programs and certifications that help you get the most out of Meta tools.
“It generates a lot of enthusiasm to know that, from civil society, the State and the private sector, there are sectors that invest and develop Argentina but, above all, from each one of our young people, there is a vocation to train, continue learning and above all things , for trying to transform talent into wealth, development and benefits for the community”, said Sergio Massa, Minister of Economy.

Another job opportunity
The software engineering company Streambe seeks to expand its staff of collaborators, half of whom are abroad, with the incorporation of developers, testers, devops, analysts and project managers. Remuneration starts in $3,000 per month For profiles with experience.
It also offers training possibilities and, although English is not exclusive, each collaborator who enters has the possibility of accessing courses from basic to more advanced levels, at least once a week.
According to the Chamber of Software and Computer Services Companies of Argentina (Cessi) in 2021, 15,000 positions were left unfilled in the local market. The pandemic generated an exponential growth in the need for digitization of companies and institutions, which stressed an offer that, in addition, is attracted by salaries in dollars from foreign companies.
On the other hand, flexibility in terms of home office and remote work is, for Streambe, an issue that has been overcome: “For us, being a digital nomad is not a benefit, but a way of life. From the outset we consider homeworking as a right and not as a benefit”, clarifies Andrea Perfetti from Streambe.
