    Careerist Fraud

    I took Manual Qa class from Careerist. Advisor promised me that if I don’t get job within 30 days after I finish the course ,I would get 100% money-back guarantee. I finished my course on time and they couldn’t find me job interview so I called the customer service to request money back but it got denied saying the advisor was wrong 😑. Stay away big fraud

    Seasoned, Effective, Interesting

    I'll always recommend this program, it literally helped me get into the tech bubble. The instructors are knowledgeable and patient, the materials are detailed and self-explanatory. The experience I got during the internship afterward was beneficial. My mentor was quite responsive and prepared me well for my interviews. After applying for jobs, with the help of JAS, I was able to ace most of my interviews and secured three offers at the end of three months...

    Shady and Scammers - Sales Engineering Program

    I am regretting attending Careerist instead of another boot camp. The program guarantees that one can break into tech with no prior sales or tech experience needed. Moreover, it guarantees 1:1 mentorship, specifically to improve my resume and practice mock job interviews. As of today, even after Graduation on March 3rd, these guarantees have not been delivered. I have been assigned to Aigerim Yerzhan as my mentor. In attempting to schedule a meeting with this mentor...

    Easy Learning Experience

    I enrolled in a QA Software engineer boot camp with Careerist and it has been a simple, good learning experience thus far. The one thing that can be better is the understanding of the material we need to do. Other than that, it has been great!

    BREAKING INTO TECH- SOFTWARE QA

    If you are looking to break into tech, Careerist is the place to go. I just completed the Manual QA. It was challenging but very informative and rewarding. I land a job very quickly with the tools from the program.  You receive support from anyone of the Careerist mentors and it was also great meeting people who are learning along with me.

    Excellent Bootcamp to transition into Tech!

    I’m a former educator transitioning to tech. Careerist has been an excellent boot-camp experience for me. My neighbor told me about this company and got a high-paying job ($102k) after doing a course, so I knew it was legitimate! I did the ‘Manual QA’ course which included live online video lessons, quizzes and an in-depth homework task, followed by practical internship opportunities. Having finished the course, I feel really confident that I can do the job I was trained for because of t...

    It was awesome. Great way for career change opportunity

    One of my friend recommended Careerist to me.  I took a Manual QA course with them. One of the best decision I made. I wish I had found this earlier.

Instructors were very experienced, during the classes they always made sure all was well explained.  Mentor was very helpful throughout the whole process of the job search which I appreciate. I would definitely recommend Careerist to someone w...

    Impactful and Knowledgeable Course Material

    Careerist has been an eye opening experience for me. They have cultivated an environment for success in the tech industry. This bootcamp helped people like myself with no tech experience, gain confidence breaking into the industry. The mentor help from Nadia from Careerist has come with such high value. Her ability to take my past and current experience and shape them into what tech companies are looking for is truly remarkable. Nadia, along with the rest of the Careerist team, have open...

    Most affordable course for Manual QA's

    I was able to enroll in the Manual QA program during a special Black Friday sale.  All of the teachers are experienced QA's who are friendly and pleasant.  This course is the perfect bridge into the tech industry, especially for those without a technological background.  No coding experience is required.  Furthermore, the course includes an internship and externship.  They teach you everything you need to know and the supplemental materials are extremely helpful.
