    Managed to find a job after graduation

    I completed the Sales Engineering course. Previously, I was a sales rep in b2b business and then in ed tech. What the Careerist team taught me was very different from the traditional sales techniques. My new job doesn’t imply selling products but finding ways of improving them. I fell in love with this occupation during the discovery & research stage of the internship simulator. While I was studying a startup wanted to hire me. But I preferred to work for a more stable business and t...

    Great, engaging experience that sets you up for success!

    The course material is well organized and delivered in small doses. This allows for a high-level of comprehension and understanding of the subject matter for students. Sometimes the instruction can be confusing at times but after clarification and further explanation, it gets better. The instructors are awesome at responding to your questions. The course starts out with some background on the concept of Manual QA and the employment outlook. By week two you are introduced to main testing ...

    Excellent bootcamp in Manual QA

    I have currently completed my coursework with Careerist as well as my first internal project. What a great experience! All the instructors are experienced, passionate and excellent at helping their students learn the material. Like many others just starting, I was not confident at first but after my first internship I know I can do the work. All you have to do is follow their instructions. I am excited to start my real world internship next week. After that I will be placed with a mentor...

    Informative and practice-oriented!

    I love that the Manual QA course was set up with the idea that anyone could follow it regardless of their prior experience. You can really see how much work has been put into organizing the learning process properly.
    The most impressive thing is that the tutors for the courses are not just ordinary teachers who only work for the money. All the instructors I’ve met during my 2 courses (Manual & Automation QA) are actually working elsewhere within the spheres they teach. Receiving k...

    Student-oriented

    I saw people here talking about how difficult it is to change spheres and begin studying something new, but very few mentioned that paying for the courses can also be a problem for some people. Thanks to the payment splitting option that Careerist has I was actually able to afford a course! That’s awesome, especially if you take into account that I managed to get a job in the end. Thanks a lot!

    Just finished the QA

    Just finished the QA course and gotta say, it was way cooler than I expected. The instructors really knew their stuff and didn't make it feel like rocket science. Thumbs up for the practical stuff – helped me wrap my head around things!

    Quick and impactful

    I absolutely love how the courses are concise and relevant. When I decided to go into IT, I didn’t exactly have a lot of money saved up, so long courses with lots of unnecessary information weren’t my kind of thing, since I needed to get done as quickly as possible. 
    To cut it short, I graduated from the Sales course and currently have a decent salary and am looking for a promotion within 2-3 months. Lucky me! :)

    Careerist Tech Sales course

    One of Careerist’s advantages is that they provide full support for their graduates until the job contract is signed. I graduated from the Sales Engineering course and had the platform’s support all the way until I got a job 2 months after graduating. I absolutely love how the course is organized so you get so much more than just lectures. The course itself is rather short but it really upgrades your skills at warp speed thanks to the internships and guidance from the mentors who all wor...

    QA Manual

    Today, I’ve graduated from the QA Manual boot camp. To all of those who came before me — thank you for paving the way. The lectures and the following internships were  constructive, invigorating and highly encouraging for a fruitful professional success. I can see myself working in this field. Specially, during the internships ( two of them following each other) we encountered many “bugs” and some blockers. Nevertheless, we were well trained  to approach assigned issues in JIRA a...

    QA Manual

    I just finished the QA Manual Course and it was fantastic! The lessons were clear, the instructors were helpful, and I learned skills I can use right away. I feel more confident in manual testing now. Highly recommend!

    As for me, the best thing about Careerist courses is that they are done in a bootcamp format.

    You have tons of materials and studying to do but the information given is the knowledge you will actually need. You get loads of homework but it’s the practical skills that you sharpen by doing it. The classes are quite intense but you can always ask a question and get a proper reply. What I’m trying to say is that you get a lot of important information that you will be able to apply in a very short amount of time. There is always the option to rewatch a lesson on the internal Careerist...

    Informative and helpful

    When I first contacted the Careerist team, I didn’t know which course to choose. The career advisor recommended manual QA to me as a beginner. I took this course and now I can say that’s very well-structured and understandable. What I enjoy the most is practical tips and real cases from the teacher’s personal experience as it gives an insider look at the sphere
