    1:1 coaching was the best part

    I was homeschooled and I realize the difference between group classes and individual ones. However, I started a group course to better feel the vibes of working in tech. I selected Careerist because of 1:1 coaching. I extremely enjoyed my conversations with the coaches! They always found enough time for me and gave comprehensive answers to all my questions.

    Thanks for help getting my first job in IT!

    I finished the Manual QA course with Careerist, and I am very glad that I've done it! I was skeptical from the beginning, but after a year of working in the IT industry, I must say that their training program equips students with the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the field of software testing. And even more! The instructors are experienced professionals who provide hands-on training and guidance throughout the course. The other great thing about Careerist is that mentors ass...

    The course was pretty decent. Let’s see how long it will take me to find a job…

    Everything was fine but I wish there were more interactivity. And I wouldn’t mind studying a bit longer to get more knowledge and compose a larger portfolio. I studied Systems Engineering. It was a bit difficult but nice. I’m trying to find my first tech job now, wish me luck!

    Liked it

    I had the best time in the manual course! It was so worth it! At first, I was a bit unsure if I'd like it, but I was pleasantly surprised. They did an awesome job mixing theory and hands-on practice, which made learning really enjoyable.

    It’s more than learning how to use Adobe tools

    I’m a self-taught designer. Before I enrolled in the UX design course, I knew how to cope with the creative part of this job. But I knew nothing about user flow analysis, hypothesis development and other aspects related to research. The Careerist team showed me that design isn’t only about visual aesthetics. It’s a mix of business and science which is enjoyable and not so difficult. Thaanks so much, the course was top-notch!

    Enjoying my new job

    I used to be suspicious of all the online courses… there are so many of them and they teach the same skills. What matters for me is real success stories of both teachers and graduates. Careerist graduates work for tech giants such as meta or amazon. And teachers are current practitioners! That’s why I opted for Careerist. Now the funniest thing… When I graduated, I accepted an offer from a startup and not a tech giant because the conditions were simply superb…

    I would highly recommend Careerist if you are wanting to break into tech. I was skeptical at first(didn't know what to expect). I have now graduated and am about to do my internship outside of Careerist. My instructors are absolutely wonderful and really are available if you need help or don't know something. Thank you to everybody here at Careerist!

    Well spaced and no pressure

    A very interesting course that is well planned and focused not only on learning the job, but also getting the job, they offer free classes to see if it is something you would like. I really appreciated the ability to reach out for support, however one must also apply themselves to get the course done in a timely manner.
