Today is my first day being an officially graduated Codaisseur alumni. I MADE IT! Now the job hunt begins - extremely excited to see what's out there and to find a company that's a great fit for me and I am for them.
So how to sum up the experience I've had during these past 11 weeks completing a Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp?
- Intense & long hours
Some of them trying to solve the never seen before errors, challenging but also extremely rewarding when you finally understand a new thing and don't freak out when getting errors, but actually solve the problem because you understand them.
- I feel extremely proud of myself
Coming from a non-IT background (as a Molecular Biologist) and completing the bootcamp (where only 35 % of the applicants are accepted and 70 % graduate). I proved to myself that I am intelligent enough to thrive in a challenging environment and now I can truly say I'm a fast learning person.
- It's fun
It's been so fun being a part of a class with people from 19 different nationalities and where 75 % of the class were women. I hope that this is the future - that women are as much part of the tech scene as men have been.
- The right sector
I definitely feel like I'm in the right sector - now that I have the skill of coding, I feel like the possibilities are limitless, it's really only your creative mind that's the limit.
I would highly recommend Codaisseur to anyone interested in changing the course of their career.
- The teachers
Extremely talented teachers who go above and beyond to help you understand each day. On top of a up-to-date curriculum, we finish the Bootcamp by having a Career Accelerator Week, with help from the very experienced Career Advisor Violeta - I definitely feel ready to go out in the "real world" now.
So anyone interested in a social, enthusiastic junior web developer with a "go-getter" mindset. Let's talk!
As a former pro athlete I thrive with a challenge and understand the value of good teamwork. Looking for a position in an innovative and inspiring tech environment.
For those that are women reading this, I would recommend following fellow tech gals @theavocoder and @herhelloworld on instagram. Young female software engineers inspiring and educating in all things tech. I would also recommend to read "Brave, not Perfect" by Reshma Saujani. Very interesting read by the founder of Girls Who Code.
