Vijaya Pieterson IT Career Switch

Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: November 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I started the Traineeship because I wanted to switch to a career in coding. I love the challenge and creativity that comes with developing software. After doing some research, I chose ITCareerSwitch because it seemed like the most comprehensive course and one where I could work at my own pace.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I really enjoyed the portfolio projects! Not only was it great having applications to showcase online, but it was during this phase of the traineeship where I truly refined my skills — by applying the techniques I learnt in the Codecademy courses and by doing plenty of problem solving.
What's your current role like?
I will be developing front and back-end software while also maintaining the server and supporting systems.
