How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
I was a stage manager in the theatre and live events industry for ten years before starting Northcoders. I was beginning to look for a new opportunity where I could use my logical thinking and problem solving skills in a different setting and discovered coding!
What was the support like on the course?
The tutors and mentors on the course were knowledgeable, approachable and very supportive. Slack was a great communication tool for asking a quick question or for a mentor to share a link to a website so that I could look something up in my own time.
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
The support from the career team has been especially helpful as I knew nothing about the tech industry and how to apply for a "proper job". The CV advice was great and Steph and her team have been so encouraging while I've been applying for various roles.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?
Absolutely give it a try! I started with some easy online resources and really enjoyed it so I just kept going. Northcoders seemed like a natural next step and I haven't looked back.
Anything else you'd like to add?
A great coding bootcamp. Thank you Northcoders!
From Support and Training Team Manager to Graduate Software Engineer
At the end of the course I came out feeling ready to apply for jobs with a portfolio of projects under my belt. So overall it did everything I wanted it to, and I met some great people along the way!
From Musician to Junior Software Developer
The pace is just right, it’s challenging and you move onto new topics quickly but all the knowledge you gain is consolidated throughout the course.
