Jamie-Rao

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: May 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I have moved to another country and my career plans together with the university degree became irrelevant. I was doing simple work but craved for something more meaningful. Since I have always been interested in technology but lacked actual theoretical knowledge, I decided to find some courses. IT Career Switch traineeship gave me not only the necessary theoretical and practical skills but helped to define the exact path in IT I am aiming for now. The included recruitment was another reason I chose to start this traineeship. Have not regretted it!

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

During the traineeship, I went through multiple courses, and I specifically enjoyed networking. It was great to get some practice using virtual machines and get to know Windows servers and other operating systems since I generally use only Windows 10. However, the best part was the recruitment process. I felt really supported and gained another set of skills useful for the interviews.

What's your current role like?

My current role is connected with networking Рdealing with broadbands, landlines and VoIP. I absolutely love the place where I am now and it promises to become only better. I keep referring to the knowledge I have gained during the traineeship daily.
