When did you graduate from BrainStation?

I graduated in the summer of 2020.

What did you do before attending BrainStation? 

I was a visual director for a small content agency located in Brooklyn, NY.

How difficult was the BrainStation application process?

The application was fairly easy. There was some miscommunication that led to me starting a month later than I expected, but I was able to start and finish with no problem.

Where do you work now? 

The agency I worked at went belly up early this year, so I currently work as a project manager for a construction company until I can find another job.

What is your advice to someone considering BrainStation or another digital marketing bootcamp?

My advice for newcomers is to not feel intimidated by the amount of information you're fed. It may seem like a lot, but if you're interested, then you shouldn't have a problem paying attention. It has been several months and I still remember most of the program that I'm confident I can pick up right wherever we left off.
