    Careerist was a great learning experience for QA

    I did my research while I was looking for a bootcamp to attend, Careerist always came up as one of the top. I decided to go with them because of the flexibility in payment. The course was very interactive, the teachers were knowledgeable professionals who work in the field. They really do attend to the students, whether it's during class time or via communication. Definitely one of the best decisions I've made!

    Careerist has most support!

    I tried my hardest to find something “wrong” with Careerist. But every question I had. Has been answered right away. Every obstacle they said I would encounter. Careerist has provided support to overcome! I am EXTREMELY confident that I will land a position in tech sooner rather than later. This was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

    Great experience and training

    The Careerist QA Manual course was an excellent preparation for my current job. When asked who knew Jira, I raised my hand and was the only one in my team of 10+ people who knew of it. The instructors, mentors, Max and the team were and are great.

    Careerist - Sales Engineering

    My experience thus far in Sales Engineering training has been a good one. Majority of the courses focus on the sales and soft skills needed in a Sales Engineering position. I already have a sales background and have a great understanding of these things so this training has been a breeze. I've truly picked the perfect field of study for me because, the main focus in this training comes to me so naturally!

    Great QA Automation course

    I would say my overall experience attending Careerist boot camp has been great. Even when the assignments seem too difficult, there are always people available to help. The support from the Careerist team has been great. The instructor led lectures has been great as well. The instructors takes their time explaining the material and answering questions as they arise.

    Easy, Informative, Helpful

    I enjoyed my QA Manual training with Careerist. There were various instructors teaching the lessons throughout the bootcamp. They make the lessons easy to understand and would answer our questions anytime we need additional clarifications on specific topics. After we graduated from the bootcamp, we are assigned to a mentor that will assist us with resume and job interview preparations, which I find very helpful. There is definitely a lot of value in this bootcamp. My overall experience h...

    Excellent course, easy to understand for beginner with no experience, great support!

    I highly appreciate the manual QA course leadership. The instructions were easy to follow to accomplish all the tasks and our team leader Daria Harashchenko was there pretty much 24/7 to answer the questions and guide thru the tasks. It really helped to break an ice and boost my confidence as I haven't had any prior experience and now I feel capable and most important understand everything I've been told.
