How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
Absolutely loved it! From application to graduation, an amazing and incredibly rewarding experience! Superb tutor and career support throughout - to really help get you through the challenging moments and into that all-important first developer role. Thank you Northcoders! :)
What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
I was working as a Sound Engineer in a recording studio… It was an amazing job, and an area I’d been passionate about all my life… but financially my prospects were a bit limited and so I eventually decided to change paths to a new career where I could continue to be creative… coding and Northcoders was the direction I took !
What was the support like on the course?
The Northcoders tutors are fantastic! It’s a tough course, but the tutor support is exceptional. The lectures are always fun and engaging, and whether it’s a coding challenge or a concept you’re struggling with, or just a bit of general wellbeing support you need - the tutors are always there to help guide you through and keep you moving forward towards the finishing line!
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
The Northcoders Careers Team provided me with some invaluable help on applications and CV preparation, as well as guidance on the Tech industry in the North as a whole. They were in close contact with me and continued to provide support right up to me securing my first developer role!
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?
Try it out, see if you like it. If you do, and you’re ready for a new challenge… just go for it!
