Junior Web Developer at Anthropics Technology
Which _nology intake were you on?
Remote, September – November 2020
What were you doing in your career/education before you joined the _nology course?
I was working as an administrator and user tester for a music exam board. Working alongside developers in testing really accelerated my move to change career path.
Did you have any coding experience before you started the course?
I delayed my _nology start date after COVID-19 started to emerge, so I had a good amount of preparation time around my work commitments – it made the first couple of weeks a little easier, but _nology give a lot of useful context around best practices, so it was never boring!
What job are you doing now?
I’ve just started as a junior web developer at a company who produce photo editing software. There’s a huge amount to learn, but I still feel in the right mindset to learn, and everyone seems super supportive so far!
How was your experience on the _nology course?
It was great! Taking place remotely, it was interesting to meet so many people from across the country taking the same path I was, and I feel ready to take on the challenge of my first job in tech.
How was your experience of the post-course careers support?
The fact that_nology have Opus behind them looking for jobs for their graduates was a big draw for me, and they didn’t disappoint – I had an interview organised for me before the course even finished, and a few other leads before I landed my role.
Any other comments/feedback?
Thanks again to everyone at _nology – it was an incredibly smooth life-changing decision all in all!
