Ionut Sandu

Job Before: University student

Job Now: Full-stack Developer @ EverLearn


Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: June 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I was attending the University Of Greenwich, Computer science profile when I started your traineeship. I felt that the University was not teaching me enough so I googled around how can I learn faster about coding and there was an ad for ITCareerSwitch. After I read your offer I’ve done some research and I found good reviews for this company. 1 day later I started the coding programme.¬†

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I liked that the programme is very well structured and very precise. I subscribed to learn to code so that’s what I’ve got. Unlike university where we learn about other things as well such as networks, computer architecture and so on. The content is great and the people I was assigned to work with were great. Paddy was always pushing my limits. Always making me wonder how I can improve my code. Sarah has done a great job in my recruitment phase providing around 50 job offers weekly.

What's your current role like?

My recruitment phase took a bit longer than usual as the job market dropped because of COVID but I got a job as a Junior Full Stack Developer. It is a 3-month contract and if they are satisfied with my work they will offer me a permanent role. I am currently a part of a small team but I feel that I have a good impact on their business.
