I was a Film Producer and now I'm a Developer Trainee at United Shore.

"I looked at the people I was working around and where their careers were going and knew I wanted more. I wanted to be challenged in a new way and saw the beauty and creativity behind code. I chose Tech Elevator because of its job placement rate and, after attending an Open House, knew they had a quality program that would be the right fit for me. I am happy to report I had an offer with my top company a week before graduation."

I was an IT Helpdesk Associate and now I'm an Associate Consultant at KSM Technology Partners.

“Tech Elevator was very difficult but it showed me what I could do. I didn’t think I was capable of learning so much and doing so much in such a short time. It was character building. You have to learn on the fly. You have to get used to being comfortable in uncomfortable situations and being confident that you will learn quickly.”
