    I was really excited to start the Sales Engineer course at Careerist. I had reached a point in my career where I wanted to collectively pull together my experience in past positions and work in a strategic role in technology. The coursework was a mix of in-depth and high-level, but enough to get an understanding of each piece of the product life cycle. Our ability to work on our final project each week and build on what we learned felt natural. Some weeks were super heavy which was tough to juggle working a full-time job and online of class per week, but in the end, it paid off. I'm now in the process of applying and interviewing for my new job. Careerist has offered to be a resource in my job search and I'm excited to see what my future in product holds!

    Online Systems Engineering course at Careerist. The remote experience was excellent and way better then I'd expected. We were still able to do group/partner exercises and get quality face time with the instructor and instructor assistant. The teacher was a true master of her field. It was a true honor and pleasure to study with her, she had so many relevant experiences to speak to during the course. The content was so diverse- everything felt really dynamic and totally contemporary/on trend with current IT best practices. I would highly recommend this course for anyone working in IT or anyone aiming to start IT career.

    I was so happy with the instruction I received at Careerist during my QA Automation course. The skills were extremely applicable and the instructional staff was hands-on and engaging. When I signed up I was worried whether the course would end up getting my IT job, but the course was framed in such a way that there was something to take away from each lesson whether for everyone. I feel the course was as valuable to me as a corporate marketer as it was to the start-up founders, brand strategists, and other wide array of backgrounds in the course. Loved it and definitely recommend!

    My course (Tech Sales) experience was great overall. I already provided some feedback related to wanting to see other case studies and examples that weren't specifically related to just brands. I'd love to see things that fit either the non-profit world or perhaps might be more cause related or might have a different kind of conversion funnel. I look forward to being a Careerist's student again. I learned a lot, met great people and had fun doing so.

    I loved the Manual QA course at Careerist. I learned a ton, and built a really solid foundation for career pivoting. That said, it's been a hard pivot in my market. This area is saturated with coding bootcamps - some with great standing in the local tech scene; some with less than stellar responses. Getting that first position to take a chance on a green tester is hard - much harder than anticipated and much harder than the success rates would have one believe.

    I've learned quite a bit about all the technical skills needed to start a career in Tech Sales. I've also like the aspect that there was an emphasis on less is more (no clutter). Since SQL is pretty involved it would be almost better to have a standalone circuit teaching just SQL so you get to practice it a bit more. The final project was well thought out and interesting (Airbnb in Amsterdam) and fun to work on. To get the weekly feedback from a tutor also helped to move everything along more smoothly. Overall a very pleasant learning experience.

    Graduating from Systems Engineering course at Careerist was one of the most challenging yet rewarding things I have done in my life!
    I highly recommend the program. The teachers were super knowledgeable, the curriculum well developed and the career coach super supportive. Be ready to spend 6 months of completely dedicating yourself to studying. The program is very fast passed and includes both front-end and back-end engineering. I was able to find a job after 1 month of graduation.

    I took the QA Automation online course at Careerist. It was 11 weeks plus a lot of outside work but definitely worth it. In my opinion, you got out of the class what you put in. If you wanted to put a lot of extra work in, you would definitely learn a lot more. I feel empowered to try new things and I can confidently say that I know Python. It's directly related to the work I do, as I work at a software company and I am middle level so I feel like this skill will help me figure out where I want to go in this industry and having a background in testing is a great thing to have.

    I took Manual QA course and had a wonderful experience. The first portion of the course was largely focused around HTML and CSS. This was a lot easier for me to grasp. When it came to the javascript portion, it was VERY challenging, therefore, I was happy to have both my instructors and TA's to lean on to help me learn and work through that section of the course.

     I would recommend this Manual QA course to anyone interested in IT career. I found the program solid and helpful. I’ve been in IT industry for about seven years now. This program is much for new professionals or those seeking to enter the profession. However, I went in with the objective of defragmenting my knowledge from years of various roles is very different kinds of companies and products. The program did its job. Thank you.

    I came to Careerist with no programming background and I'm 47 y.o. I started the 6 week course with one instructor. The instructor was nice, he always taught well and it showed. Good preparation. He knew the concepts and we could communicate them. We had 30 to 80 slides in every slass, a cheat sheet, little exercises, and lots of support. The lectures were superb.
