How did you find your time on the bootcamp?

It was an amazing experience. I have learnt a lot and met some awesome people that later became my friends.

What were you doing before the Bootcamp?

Before Northcoders I was an Industrial Maintenance Support Technician. I wanted a change because I fell in love with coding while I was doing the project for my HNC and I didn't like the shifts on Maintenance.

What was the support like on the course?

My situation at home wasn't easy during the Bootcamp, however, my mentor (Scarlett) made all the necessary adjustments to help me finish the bootcamp successfully.

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

I have received a lot of guidance about how to write my CV, how to do the interviews and about my online presence.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?

The bootcamp is hard, stressful at some times but totally worth it.
