How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
I was nervous before starting the course, wondering if I’d be able to do it but the support from the tutors and fellow students was really great. Everyone at Northcoders is either currently doing the course or has previous completed it so there is plenty of support.
We also got assigned mentors for one-to-ones. I found this really useful as I could talk to my mentor about aspects of the material that I was struggling with.
What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
Working as an Artworker, which was enjoyable but I was looking for a new challenge and career progression.
What was the support like on the course?
Fantastic, all the Northcoders staff were really patient and helpful, they explained the topics in a simple and clear way. The tutors really put a lot of time and effort into making sure you’re understanding the topics and are more than happy to go over things again if needed.
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
We had a great choice of roles to apply for from a wide range of companies. Amul and the team were so helpful, we had the option of a call prior to the interview just to go over any questions and a call afterwards to have a chat about how it went. The team helped me get a job within 2 weeks of graduating!
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?
I’ve just finished my 1st week at my new job and can say 100% I’m so happy I did the course, if you’ve been learning to code by yourself and want to work in software development this is definitely the best place to learn the skills to get you that job!
