Vytautas Venckunas IT Career Switch

Course: Cyber Security Traineeship
Placement Date: June 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I finished university and was quickly disillusioned as I found it almost impossible to find work in my field of study. I turned back to a lifelong interest in IT and decided to pursue it professionally.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I highly enjoyed the ability to work independently and set your own hours. I was able to make steady progress at my own pace, both when I was furloughed, as well as when I was working full time.
What's your current role like?

My current role is challenging but full of opportunities to learn every day. The wide range of knowledge and experience I gained through IT Career Switch is allowing me to wear many hats and impress my coworkers with my breath of knowledge despite being a newbie.
