Congratulations on your new job! Where will you be working?

Thank you. I've joined a company called Specialized Technical Services (STS), in Jordan and I'm working as a Microsoft Cloud, Executive Pre-Sales Engineer.

What were you doing before signing up for our course?

I studied Communication Engineering at university but I didn’t really see myself working in this field. I went on to work as a Network Engineer but found myself periodically checking job portals and looking out for other opportunities. In all the jobs that interested me, they asked for programming knowledge. So I decided to dedicate myself to obtaining the type of technical knowledge the market was asking for. I saw that was so much available online, but I knew that if I was going to take this seriously I needed to do an onsite bootcamp.

Why did Ubiqum Code Academy stand out as the best choice?

When looking for a coding bootcamp, I used SwitchUp to find the best of the best, and I did by the way. Initially, I was only planning on doing a one-month course, but Ubiqum's great reviews made me change my mind.

The fact that Ubiqum commits to helping you find a job, and even allows you to only pay half of your course fees upfront and the rest when you’re hired, totally convinced me to choose this coding bootcamp.

Do you think our "Learn by Doing" methodology has been effective?

I came to the academy with not even a beginner’s level in IT, but after completing the Java course with Ubiqum, and experiencing their “Learn by Doing” methodology, not only has my programming knowledge greatly expanded, my way of thinking and problem-solving in life has completely transformed. I now have access to a very different mental model. I will never regret taking this course and becoming a part of Ubiqum.

Why would you recommend Ubiqum?

I came to open one door, and unconsciously, all doors were open after attending Ubiqum.
I didn’t have any difficulty finding a job back in Jordan. Upon finishing the course, I was already in contact with a few companies who were interested in me after hearing about how I’d done Ubiqum's course in programming. I really feel that I can do anything now, all the doors have been opened. With the knowledge I have gained here, I’m now able, in the near future, to work for myself and set up my own venture. That is why choosing Ubiqum Code Academy was the best decision I ever made.

What would you say to someone who is considering a career change?

You won’t regret it. You realise that you’ve made the right decision only one week into the course - as by this time you’ve already learned how to create a web page in HTML and CSS. Ubiqum has changed my life. I will come back to Ubiqum one day and say “you are the reason why I’m where I am today”.

Anything you'd like to add?

My experience was absolutely great! It feels like you’re really part of a family, as much with the other students as with the mentors. We’re not at university, we’re all mature enough people to all get along great and help each other out. I was afraid that, as an international student, I would find it a very solitary experience but it has been just the opposite. The mentors are really knowledgeable, and always help you in any way they can.
