    I’ve been working as a manual tester for nearly three years, so I understand this job a bit.

    To expand my career opportunities, I completed the QA Automation course at Careerist. Probably, I could have learned some things on my own. But it’s always great to get advice from experienced tech pros. Plus, I got a formal certificate, which is essential for some companies that I’d like to apply to.

    I chose Careerist over other the six platforms that I considered.

    First, I made a spreadsheet where I compared all the options. Then, I got in touch with the teams of all the platforms to assess how they communicate and answer questions. In the final standings, Careerist scored two points higher than the runner-up. I’m halfway through the UX course now and I don’t regret my choice at all.

    I studied Sales Engineering at Careerist and it was the first online course that I completed.

     I felt nervous in the beginning. But in the second week already, I felt that the process was completely under control! I loved the pace of my studies and the commitment of the teachers. It was a valuable experience and I greatly appreciated career advice.
