    Worth every dollar

    I had NO tech background at all. I came from face to face sales. Careerist mad it easy, detailed, and I had all the support I could need. I followed their plan, did the work, and was hired for the perfect job for my situation...in just 70 days. Everyone at Careerist I dealt with was extremely knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful, and the Mentor Program was a lifesaver! The Job Search Assistant makes finding and applying for the right jobs as easy as possible. If you are considering a ch...

    Great experience with Careerist.

    My experience with Careerist was great, I watched the playback of the online classes during the day and worked at night. After graduation it took about two months to land the position I study for. My mentor helped me along the way with tips and resume building, I highly recommend careerist.

    Very informative bootcamp!

    I'm so happy to share that my experience with the Careerist Bootcamp was absolutely wonderful! Throughout the program, I gained an immense amount of valuable knowledge and skills that have undoubtedly helped me in my professional development. One of the highlights of the program was having a mentor like Symbat, who was always available to answer any questions I had. Her guidance and support truly enhanced my learning experience and helped me navigate the program more effectively.

    Excellent!!!

    It Is because manual QA course was so exceptional that I decided to also sign up for automation QA course. Making a career switch can be so difficult but careerist is created in a way to benefit you as the job seeker in the best way possible and to make that switch possible and successful. The course is created to assist with all the most important information that can be used from day one on the job. There are endless sources of education and resources to assist anyone willing to learn....

    Not what I expected.

    If you are like me you saw a video from Cyrus Harbin that sparked your interest in Tech Sales. Day one the classes are open to the public we had around 300 people attend during my cohort. The instructor Nigel gave us all a pep talk about how this was going to change our lives etc. Nigel just recently moved on to start his own boot camp. Every class we watch a 1 hour PowerPoint where the instructor talks vaguely about the topic and then opens the door for questions. We only got HW 1 time....

    Very good tool

    For sure you can get a job, I got mine few days ago, it can take sometime and you need to keep investigate and do an effort to get it. They won’t go to get the job for you of course, but careerist will give you good tools.

    The best bootcamp

    The course at Careerist was excellent--where have you been all my life? The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and articulate. I am not easily impressed, reserved with my praise, and do not usually complete surveys. But for the first time, I have achieved my salary goes and all that is thanks to the knowledge I have after attending Careerist! 

    Thanks, to everyone that help me on this journey.

    Manual QA

    Great course! If you're looking for a career change and interested in going into the Tech field without a technical degree or prior tech experience then this opportunity is for you. If you are looking for a quick fix, walk away now. This is a great opportunity if you are willing to put in the work, the courses are well done, and the instructors a great and willing to help! I learned all I needed to get into this field, and their mentors know what they are walking about, so just do as the...

    Best decision I ever made!

    This program definitely changed my life...I started out with the manual course which gave me foundational hands on experience. While working with my mentor Anastasia I was able to land my first QA job. Then I did the python course for 1 month and went ahead to complete the automation course with Lana. The automation course was super intense! but with a lot of practice and the help of Jefferson -great guy! I now have a lot of Confidence in this QA field getting paid way more than I ever i...

    A bit scammy

    I started the carrerist program late September of 2022 and they promised a mentor and to help you find a job after. They also state they will teach you how to become a sales engineer within the program. Everything they teach can be googled. The mentors are not mentors at all like never been in tech never been sales engineers and barely speak English. The falsely advertise they DO NOT DO NOT help you find jobs at all they used a system called “Jaz” that is inconvenient does not help you a...

    Careerist workers are disorganized thieves

    I got involved with the careerist course in 2022 after some major personal struggles and I was so excited at the idea of changing my career. I was so excited that this course was going to help me not just get the knowledge but get the job too. I was so sure that they were going to help me turn my life around with the job search assistance program and I was so sorely disappointed. The reality I found was that 1) Careerist charged me 4000 dollars for stuff I later found online is the same ...

    I Don’t Recommend Careerist Bootcamp

    I learned of the bootcamp on Instagram from Cyrus Harbin. The actual bootcamp did not meet any of my expectations. The course is fast-paced with no structure. The instructors read from slides every night and they don’t prepare you for the demo and job interview that you must pass to graduate. Nigel (one of the better instructors) left. The company seems to be focusing on money more than helping students land SE jobs because the Job Application Tracking system barely works and is not free...
