Rick Anglin   |   2021 Graduate   |   Dallas

I was a Ranch Hand and now I'm a Software Developer at ATG Cognizant .

"I have had a long career in tech support, from roles that were customer service centric to I.T. positions that were skill intensive. But while I had the skills, I never had the education to back up those skills. Recently I found myself working at a very labor intensive position, the days were long and hard and made me the kind of sore that required a hot bath to get rid of before I got up and did it all over again. It made me miss being behind a keyboard. And so I went on a search for a bootcamp that I was sure was worth my time. Tech Elevator is the only one that I found to back their claims of putting you in the field. Verified by a third party company no less. After completing the program, I have found myself happily in a position with a top tier company. And making more than I ever have—with no ceiling in sight for growth in my career to boot."
