    Manual QA Software Engineer

    I’m currently in the external internship phase. Careerist has done an amazing job going step by step with me, gaining the knowledge to become a player in this tech world. I started with no clue, and now I’m close to being able to apply and land a work from home job. Family and traveling is something I’ve always wanted to do. Thanks to Careerist, I can be able to work on the go. With no worries of a
     on-site job putting in for vacation.

    IMHO, Job Application Service is more helpful than job boards

    I chose Careerist because of its custom Job Application Service. I saw how my cousin used it and I decided I wanted it too. I studied manual QA and thanks to JAS, I finally got a job. I sent around 40 applications and had two job interviews before finding my current employer.

    Attentive, Understanding, Patient, Fun And Motivating

    My Experience Was Definitely Helpful With My Comfort Of Changing Careers Into Something I had No Background In. The Instructors Was Top Tier On Making Sure Everyone Understood Before Moving On And Very Patient With Breaking Down Things To Have Very Great Examples.

    Absolutely amazing course!

    I really liked every bit of this course. The learning phase was very easy and understandable. I mean, everyone can start and become great at this. This course and this people allow you to have the best knowledge, best practice and what's most important, everything is up to date. Every material, every tutor is from this time period. Everyone is still in this job and they give you the material that is relevant for today. I think you just have to trust me, and just start. You will not be di...

    Seems to be worth it

    I wasn’t sure how I could become a real QA tester if I studied only 6-8 hours per week. Now, I realize that for me it’s the best format for studying as I can keep working. When I study, I can properly concentrate and I don’t get exhausted. I especially like Maria and Justin, they’re really talented teachers! I decided to leave this review after I had my first mockup interview. I made so many mistakes and now I know how to avoid them. Besides, I missed many important aspects when trying t...

    Thank you, it’s a great course!

    I joined the Systems Engineering course with only basic computer skills. I can confirm that such a low level of competence is enough to get started. The teachers are very articulate and attentive to detail. They make everyone feel confident and psychologically comfortable. It’s just as important as explaining how to use various tools.

    I’m mid-way through the QA bundle course and I love it

    I have no tech experience and I got tired of my current sphere, so my husband who’s working in QA recommended Careerist to me based on the opinions of his colleagues. Now I’m learning and sometimes I ask him to assess my skills and knowledge. So far, he’s proud of me :) He says Careerist knows how to prepare students for work. Personally, I love that teachers share large amounts of useful information with us without overloading us mentally and emotionally.

    Managed to find a job after graduation

    I completed the Sales Engineering course. Previously, I was a sales rep in b2b business and then in ed tech. What the Careerist team taught me was very different from the traditional sales techniques. My new job doesn’t imply selling products but finding ways of improving them. I fell in love with this occupation during the discovery & research stage of the internship simulator. While I was studying a startup wanted to hire me. But I preferred to work for a more stable business and t...

    Great, engaging experience that sets you up for success!

    The course material is well organized and delivered in small doses. This allows for a high-level of comprehension and understanding of the subject matter for students. Sometimes the instruction can be confusing at times but after clarification and further explanation, it gets better. The instructors are awesome at responding to your questions. The course starts out with some background on the concept of Manual QA and the employment outlook. By week two you are introduced to main testing ...

    Excellent bootcamp in Manual QA

    I have currently completed my coursework with Careerist as well as my first internal project. What a great experience! All the instructors are experienced, passionate and excellent at helping their students learn the material. Like many others just starting, I was not confident at first but after my first internship I know I can do the work. All you have to do is follow their instructions. I am excited to start my real world internship next week. After that I will be placed with a mentor...

    Informative and practice-oriented!

    I love that the Manual QA course was set up with the idea that anyone could follow it regardless of their prior experience. You can really see how much work has been put into organizing the learning process properly.
    The most impressive thing is that the tutors for the courses are not just ordinary teachers who only work for the money. All the instructors I’ve met during my 2 courses (Manual & Automation QA) are actually working elsewhere within the spheres they teach. Receiving k...

    Student-oriented

    I saw people here talking about how difficult it is to change spheres and begin studying something new, but very few mentioned that paying for the courses can also be a problem for some people. Thanks to the payment splitting option that Careerist has I was actually able to afford a course! That’s awesome, especially if you take into account that I managed to get a job in the end. Thanks a lot!
