    Perfectly organized course

    The course was very well organized and an online access made it so flexible and easy to combine with the my schedule. They also provided a recording for every lesson and you can always go back to it. Lessons are very structured and information is easy to follow. Instructors were great, very knowledgeable and always open to questions. They provide a huge support though the job searching journey and mentor you on every step. Highly recommend this course!

    QA BOOTCAMP experience

    I have finished the course work, and internships. Staff are pleasant, helpful, and don’t make you feel like your dumb. I love the the class is recorded so that you can always go back to it. I hate that my class was so big though it was over 100 ppl. The internship was ok. I wish I had more problem solving situations but I did learn a lot and meant great people. I am now at the mentor stage and soon onto my new job.

    Well-planned and good foundation

    When I first heard about Careerist, I knew this was the career path for me. Not being current on tech, I had my husband, who teaches Computer Science at a college level, review the Careerist website. He told me that it would be a good opportunity and experience. 

    After signing up, I found that being able to watch the lessons on your own schedule & pace was so helpful, not to mention being able to go back and rewatch them to fill in any blanks. This has been an easy course that...

    Very Informative

    I am currently a student at Careerist and at first I did not know what to expect from a program that is tailored specifically for the Sales Engineer role. But as I move through the course I find myself more motivated and confident in my ability to fill this role in tech. The information that is being given is priceless, from real industry professionals with 20 plus years in the industry. They are giving you real life tidbits you can use to stand out in the application/interview process. ...

    Extremely beneficial and informative experience

    This was a great learning experience and my mentor was wonderfully helpful with any problems I encountered along the way. This is something that I believe everyone should go through if they really want to learn how to be a manual QA Engineer because it helped me prepare for everything you will experience as a QA in the tech industry. Just an awesome program in my opinion.
