Job Before: Senior Cabin Crew
Job Now: Junior CRM Developer @ Focus Group (UK)
Why did you start the Traineeship?
In January 2021 due to the pronged Covid-19 pandemic, the company I was working for collapsed. I decided to go into the IT industry as a Web Developer because I always loved solving problems and undertaking challenging tasks. IT industry gives you lots of flexibility, you can work from wherever there is an Internet connection: home, office or from the beach at south of Spain and there are lots of ways to progress.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
The real-life projects were the most exciting part of the journey with IT Carrer Switch. It allowed me to challenge my knowledge against real-world problems. This was a taste of what this role is going to look like when you get your first job.
What's your current role like?
I work as a junior CRM developer. I am expanding and improving a very complex application and using various technologies daily. I work as a part of a fantastic team of very knowledgeable, friendly and supportive people. I have already contributed to the front and back end and found and solved critical bugs.
