Job Before: Project Manager

Job Now: Junior Developer @ Little Fire Digital Ltd



Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: November 2021
Why did you start the Traineeship?
I started the traineeship because I had come out of university unsure what I wanted to do, then with lockdown starting, I was in a fortunate position of being paid not to go to work. I thought the best thing to do with my time would be to learn some new skills, I had enjoyed the little coding I had done before and I enjoy a challenge so the traineeship was the perfect opportunity for me. Coupled with the fact that once you complete in the course they format your CV and help you find a role in the industry.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
The thing I enjoyed most about the traineeship was starting with a proposal and idea for a site and using the knowledge that I had learned to turn it into a reality.
What's your current role like?
My current role is very exciting, so far I’ve been mainly working on a Shopify site which requires using the base code and adding and manipulating it to get it to the client’s specification.
