How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
Simply put - the best learning experience I have had. The quality of the course content and tutors is second to none and the atmosphere and environment fostered by Northcoders is amazing. I loved every minute of my time on the course and I have learned so much in such a short period of time! The support offered throughout is excellent as everyone cares about your development. I loved meeting new people and making new friends as part of this course as Northcoders is a really sociable place and everyone is encouraged to be themselves. Miss you guys!
What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
I was working in Corporate Finance before joining Northcoders and I wanted to change to be able to fully understand how to develop software as I wanted the power to be able to create new things and solve challenging problems. I also changed because I wanted to be able to use technology for good, something which Northcoders is really good at engendering.
What was the support like on the course?
The on-site support was personal, timely and truly helpful. The teaching team are very knowledgeable and friendly and really want to help you solve problems and I am very grateful to them for all their support. If only I could have NC-Help forever!!
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
The talent team at Northcoders genuinely want the best for you and this is something I felt along the entire process. They have been instrumental in helping me get my job and although there were some more challenging times due to lower availability nearer the Christmas period, they have worked hard to keep the lines of communication open and be honest with me about timelines and opportunities which has been massively appreciated.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?
If you are seriously wanting to get into software development, please do this course! Learning to code is not easy but very possible with the amount of support and quality of teaching at Northcoders. The only thing I would suggest is to be committed and to understand what a great opportunity this is!
