      I was an accounting uni dropout who wanted to career pivot to software development.  After some years of teaching myself, I thought about a school and found in internet some reviews about Careerist.  After getting accepted, I had some nerves.  It is intensive and only 4 weeks.  During my time I met many instructors who were extremely helpful and always willing to meet if they were available.  The pathway program is really what set this apart.  Talking with students from other boot camps, nothing offers the career help that I received.

      This is the best course I have ever taken so far in my life time, and day by day it’s getting better for me.I have got confidence facing testing interviews and learned lot of new testing vocabularies. I also discussed about your way of teaching with my friends and most of my friends, who had advised me that the online course won’t be an effective one as a classroom training, asked me to update them about the next batch to enroll themselves. This online test course has saved 40 hours journey time for me, and by enrolling in  your course I have saved 4 hours per day on traveling.I also know you will give the best.. I trusted you and here you are giving the best of the best..

      The most valuable point in attending courses is to hear all material from people who actually are in production development. All staff of Careerist we met were professional and kind people. So you can hear what tools or frameworks are in trend today. What problems and challenges appear in real life and ways to resolve it. Also important point is to learn and work with your colleagues because it is the way it is in real software production. And it is good to have people who care about you after you finish the course. There was a constant stream of links who are looking for testers.

      Careerist did a great job taking me from building blocks of manual software engineering to a qa tester The program was very intense, but there was always support provided and the emphasis on team building made it so my cohort-mates and I bonded together very tightly. The focus on autonomy was also very helpful for after the program where I needed to learn new tech without support, and found that I could do so fairly easily.
      Pros:
      -Sound education methods
      -High degree of support, but without giving away information
      -Projects that mimic real world environments
      -Extremely well organized
      -Excellent instructors
      Cons:
      -Not a lot of direct support for non-visual learning styles (i.e. those who don't learn by reading)

       Before I joined Careerist, I was selling dumpster rentals to a wide variety of clients. I had hit a cap (ceiling) income-wise and became limited. I wanted to find a company where I could expand upon my skill set and eventually make six-figures a year.
      When I first found Careerist, I honestly thought it was overpriced and that I could somehow lose. After doing research on the company and employees, as well as speaking to other members, I realized that this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up, so I went for it.
      Thanks Careerist -- I couldn’t have done it all without you!

        Before Careerist, I was studying Tourism Development and Management at Arizona State University while working in heavily customer-oriented roles. When I first learned about Careerist, I was a bit skeptical about the seemingly minimal cost, and time it took to complete the program and kept trying to look for the "hidden agenda" or the "catch" and after extensive combing through the website and FAQ, could not find anything. Aside from that, I was questioning to myself whether I really needed to dive into a completely different industry than my degree was in. However, that was one of my main draw-ins as well, was challenging myself and expanding my horizons. The program emphasized that you didn't need to have any knowledge in technology and sales, let alone sales experience; which was a largely intriguing factor. This program has built my confidence in myself, my knowledge, and my abilities to succeed not just in tech and software sales, but in any endeavor that I explore. This program has motivated me to go ALL IN and take control of my freedom.
