    Good but not Great, BBring your own resources.

    The Careerist Technical Sales Engineering Bootcamp offers a comprehensive program for those interested in pursuing a career in technical sales. However, I found that the lack of step-by-step instructions made it difficult to follow along, especially for those new to the field.

    The course materials were presented in a rather disjointed fashion, with concepts and topics often introduced without sufficient context or explanation. This made it challenging to understand how the differe...

    Graduated a year ago

    I like how they assist you until you get hired. When I started this course I had 0 experience in IT field, and got job in 4 months of my job search, I am on my second job search, still getting same assistance as when I first started looking for a job.

    Good Experience

    The course is taught by professionals who have many years of experience and knowledge in the field of QA. It only required 2 hours of commitment 5 days a week (if I remember correctly) during the time I was taking the course. Additionally, everything was remote work. The instructors were very kind and informational. They'll answer your questions and concerns. When I signed up for the course I did the Manual QA bundle. I didn't use the Job Application Service (JAS) 'cause I didn't need to...

    It was a knowledgeable experience.

    Pursuing the Manual QA course with Careerist was an amazing experience. The classes were very informative and easy to understand. The teachers were very proactive with the lessons and were knowledgeable. I landed my first job as a Manual QA a couple of months after the course ended. If you are someone who is looking to change careers and step foot into the field of IT, I would definitely recommend trying out this course with Careerist.

    Great Experience!

    I graduated and got a a job in 3 weeks in 2022 while the job market was super hot. The Manual QA course is very easy to follow and the instructors and mentors are very friendly and passionate about your success. I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in Software Quality Insurance and IT and its worth the investment because the money you'll make will be much more than the cost of the course.

    I wanted to change my career and work in IT industry, so I took Manual QA course and completed all lessons and its' tasks.

    While consolidating and practicing all that I learned, I began applying to relevant jobs. Finally 3 months later, I found my first QA job.
    The course gave me the key points and knowledge to carry on at the professional work envi...

    Software QA Tester

    The only thing which you have to do is to follow the instructions. Careerist has a direct strategy on how to become QA Tester. There were live lessons with helpful instructors who were ready to answer our questions. Then I joined an internship to grow up my practical skills, we tested both web and mobile apps and used different test tools. I could understand how to use them on real projects and indeed it wasn't required to use the code which was just amazing. After finishing the internsh...

    Easy-Going and a lot of Information

    The course was not difficult only if you really wanted to get into to the field. The instructors are very helpful and explain things well. My mentor was very helping and was always on my side. I had good support from him. He kept me going and pulled me through. 
    The material was taught with detail which was really good.

    Careerist changed my life

    It will be soon 1 year since I started working full time as quality assurance engineer after I completed the manual QA course and internship by Careerist. Moreover, 2 of my close friends were also able to land a QA job thanks to Careerist academic support and job interview guidance. To be honest I was really suspicious about this course at first glance since they claim to land you a 75k+ job with no experience required. However, now I can assure everyone who is still in a doubt - you can...
