Job Before: Volunteer Programme Lead
Job Now: Junior Developer @ TheTalentPeople / GetMyFirstJob
Why did you start the Traineeship?
I fancied a change in career and, although I was aware there were lots of great resources out there online, the traineeship really appealed to me as it offered structure and guidance – I could be sure that I was learning things in the correct order and had all the courseware I needed. Furthermore, the money back guarantee reassured me and gave me confidence.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
The Codecademy courseware and the project stage. Great resources to learn from followed by good opportunities to demonstrate your skills and build a portfolio.
What's your current role like?
Great! I am a Junior Developer working with a great team and have been doing lots of front-end work with a view to training me up more in the back-end work as I develop. I love the role.
