Job Before: Lifeguard

Job Now: Junior Back End Developer @ Grand Visual


Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: May 2022

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I was always drawn to IT and thought that would be cool to have a career in this field but never really had the chance to actually try to do it until COVID hit and lost my current job. That is when I came across IT Career Switch and decided to start their Coding traineeship.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
In my opinion, the best part of the traineeship was working on the 2 real-world projects. My knowledge grew in an even faster phase and I was able to get actual coding experience. The projects turned out to be one of the major reasons I was hired for my first role.
What's your current role like?
I am currently working for Grand Visual as a Junior Back-End Developer using PHP. I was able to secure this position with the help of my personal recruitment specialist within one month after completing the traineeship. I love it so far it’s a great company to work for and my colleagues are awesome.

I definitely recommend IT Career Switch to anyone who is looking to change careers and wants to get into IT.
