How did you find your time on the bootcamp?

We were taught very interesting and useful content at a challenging yet not overwhelming pace.

What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?

I was a Sales Engineer at Farid Hillend Engineering Ltd. I was writing some code to automate existing processes and was enjoying this more than the core job, so decided it was the direction I wanted to take my career.

What was the support like on the course?

We were given dedicated tutors which held regular 1-on-1 meetings to discuss any issues we had (academic or otherwise). To request help whilst coding there was a command we could enter on our computer and a tutor would be assigned to you shortly.

How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?

There were regular updates on the job board and you could be put forward for any jobs which you were interested in.
