* Get The Career You Deserve *
Break Into Tech
Skillcrush completely changed my life. Only 10 months after starting my first lesson, I was able to land a flexible job at a media agency and am continuously growing my freelance web design/dev business. Can’t say enough amazing things about the entire Skillcrush team and learning process! Keep being awesome and empowering women to break into tech!
The Economy’s Crazy, but My New Skills Still Landed Me a New Job
I was job hunting after being furloughed from my company a few weeks ago. I just accepted a new position last week and start tomorrow! Grateful to have a job in this economic craziness…hard work pays off!
Why Spend Thousands on Lessons When All You Need Is Skillcrush?
After being in the ‘wild’ I have learned that the education I gained from my Skillcrush courses has far exceeded my counterparts, some of who spent thousands more on continuing ed courses at local universities. It’s important to know that the foundational knowledge is covered here. Others are having a much harder time finding positions due to simple lack of core ‘test’ question answers asked to land interviews.
I didn’t know I could create a career from nothing, I didn’t know a creative career in tech could exist, and without connecting with Skillcrush, there’s no way that I would be doing what I’m doing.
Totally Lives Up to the Hype!
I am someone who gives up on difficult things easily, which can make learning new skills as an adult quite difficult. Skillcrush makes it easy to learn at your own pace and divides up each subject into bite-sized chunks. It has kept me motivated to keep going, even when I get stuck. There’s a great student community on Slack where you can ask questions of your instructors and fellow students, town halls where you can all talk through bigger issues, and career counseling to help you use what you learned after you’ve done it.
Simple, Easy, and Fun
Skillcrush took something that I felt was so daunting and intimidating, and made it fun and simple.
I ended up earning way more money in the first two weeks of starting my business than I did in the first two years at a previous job!
Front End Developer
If I hadn’t taken Skillcrush classes, I would never have come this far because I would have continued to let fear and imposter syndrome hold me back. Finding a community who was going through the transition process with you, and who could speak to it in a real way, was crucial. I couldn’t have done it without them.
Beyond My Expectations!
I am so excited about the program and how helpful and easy everyone has made it…The staff members, Sharon, Caroline, and others, always respond to my questions in such a timely fashion. Not only are the responses so quick, but so accurate in their diagnosis…They have been so patient and kind. I am so grateful I found Skillcrush.
Front End Developer
Now that I have tech skills, I have more than just a job. I have an entire career. And that’s thanks to the skills I learned at Skillcrush.
Every day brings new challenges when you’re a developer, but it also brings you new knowledge to solve those big problems and realize those big dreams.
* Control Your Schedule *
Front End Developer
Now that I’ve taken a Skillcrush course, I just do my work and I’m happy with every minute of the work I do. I’m engaged, I’m never bored, and I have control over the work I’m doing. I’m completely empowered in my career—Skillcrush has changed my life.
Skillcrush Gave Me the Courage to Apply for (and Land!) a Remote Position
I had an interview Friday and found a job offer for that remote position in my inbox this morning. I get to use my web dev skills too!!…Skillcrush gave me the courage to reach out for this role. The position is remote, flexible, and full-time. Thank you, Skillcrush for helping me to cement my skills.
Affordable Classes On My Own Schedule
I didn’t really want to go back to school. I didn’t want to spend the money. I didn’t want to have that time commitment. I didn’t want to put everything to the side so that I can do this. With Skillcrush courses, I can study at midnight if I want to. I can study early in the morning if I want to. It’s on my own schedule.
Break Into Tech
I found the listing for this job through Remotive, which I think was recommended through Skillcrush! My skills in web design, CSS, and WordPress are what helped me with my application process and my paid trial work! I’ll be starting my full time work at Automattic, and I have Skillcrush to thank for offering me the skills and resources to apply for this role—thank you all so much!
Just as in my courses with Skillcrush, I wasn’t sure if I could do it—but I said yes anyway. It snowballed from there, and today I make my living building websites for small businesses.
* Newbie? No Problem. *
I’ve Already Earned $20K!
I still haven’t finished the how to freelance section of the course, but it’s highly ironic because the only reason I haven’t done it is because I’m working on real projects for real clients.
I have more to be excited about in my career path than ever before. There’s so much more to do in this space and having a few hard skills makes it…it’s not even a path it’s just wide open. I feel like there’s just this wide-open space for people with these skills to succeed in…It’s easy to say I want change. But actually making that change is really hard. And Skillcrush gave me the confidence to move along in that process.
Break Into Tech
When people I meet for the first time ask me “What do you do?,” I now beam with pride and exclaim, “I’m a Software Engineer!!” Some people’s reactions seem to me like I just told them I’m a professional wizard, which I kind of feel like I am. ;)…I was using my Skillcrush skills from DAY ONE. I went to my first day so nervous that I wouldn’t be able to code without a tutorial, but left feeling so relieved, happy, and excited. I finally have a job that I look forward to. THANK YOU! :)
Finally Kissing My Mundane Job Goodbye
I can’t believe it…I landed my first web developer job! It’s a front-end developer position, and I’m super excited. This will finally get me out of the mundane job I was in, that was headed nowhere. I was able to pass the two interviews and the test project they had me complete. Practically everything I learned at Skillcrush contributed to me getting this job, so THANK YOU Skillcrush!
I Broke Into Tech!
Just found out that I officially got the job today…THRILLED! I don’t think that this would have happened if I hadn’t gone through this program. During my interview process, I shared my portfolio and github, showing them that I am willing and able to dedicate myself to learning new technology…It’s perfect. SO HAPPY!
Approachable, Guided Lessons
These courses have certainly put me on the right path to knowing I CAN do this – it seemed so overwhelming at first, but you guys make it so approachable, and give me bite-size chunks if I need to take it slower. So thankful for you gals!
