    Useful course! Interesting and effective

    Changing your life and starting over from scratch is always difficult, and if you are willing to try your hand at the IT sector you have to be highly motivated... What I want to say is that Careerist is not just a bunch of qualification courses. Careerist courses have 2 very important points that I can relate to. First – the tutors, the group, and the atmosphere itself keeps you on your toes and motivated. And second – you get hands-on experience through internships and a lot of help wit...

    Careerist was awesome

    I recently completed the Manual quality assurance course with Careerist. From inception to completion, I had a good experience. The course is well structured and organized.  All the tutors were very professional and knowledgeable.  They were all very patient and took their time to explain in detail all the information being taught and provided clarity when needed. 
    All sessions were recorded, so lessons can be reviewed limitless times for better understanding if needed. Live chat serv...

    Great experience at Careerist!

    I had a great experience learning Manual QA skills at Careerist! The instructors were very clear on the explanation of the content that was taught and the lessons were easy to understand. My first internship was also a great experience led by my team leader Daria Harashchenko! She was very helpful by directing on how to do the tasks on our daily meetings and also with a summary after every meeting that was also helpful to deliver the assignments with no difficulties.

    Sales Engineering Course

    This bootcamp was an interesting experience. The instructors are very insightful and experienced. They provided so much information! It was definitely hard for me initially to keep up with all the lessons. The job mentor assistance could be better, because i feel like its lacking quality for those who want to get a job immediately, even though they give you some good resources to start with.

    Careerist experience

    This is an overpriced program with generic information you can access online for free. The mentor I had was very inexperienced and I felt cheated because the company advertised their mentorship program as one with experienced mentors. The resume writing assistance along with JAS application software they speak about are just selling points. In reality, it’s mostly DIY, where the resume writer gives you feedback and you input her suggestions yourself. The mentorship program is very shady,...

    Great bootcamp with minor issues

    I had an awesome experience with Careerist. The teachers were great. My only issue would be with some of the curriculum, it could have more information with intricacies that will better develop students in the QA field. The best part of the bootcamp was my mentor Sofiia, she has gone above and beyond with me even though she has many other mentees.

    Comprehensive and all inclusive preparation for Software Manual Tester role

    In February I stumbled upon an online program, joined FREE webinar, and decided to immediately join it. The program was focused on the Manual tester role in Software industry. It was to the point. I loved how instructors covered only what is needed to learn in order to perform the job as well as to impress the interview. Each module was followed by  quiz, our group on slack allowed us to answer questions regarding study, support team is fantastic, replied to our emails within ten minutes...

    Good, structured study plan. Great team

    The program is well structured and pretty straightforward for someone who has basic tech understanding. The classes are consistently challenging but on a chill pace so I never felt like I as falling behind, and had the opportunity to revisit lessons and materials to answer some questions that popped out during my own exploration of the technology we'll be using. 

    The instructors have real world experience in the field and not only did they answer questions related to the subjects ...

    Guided Learning Experience

    I am glad to share that I had the opportunity to take a Manual QA course with Careerist, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I made. The course provided a solid foundation of knowledge that enabled me to step into the software testing field with confidence. The instructors were highly experienced and took great care to ensure that all the concepts were well-explained. I only wish I had discovered this course earlier in my career transition.
