Genesis: Climbing The Ladder of Success with Apprenticeship

Genesis’ success story is truly inspiring and a testament to the power of seizing opportunities. Genesis, formerly working as a leasing agent, recently made the move from New York in search of new possibilities. She started looking into the IT world – more specifically front-end development – on her own. An opportunity arose when she found Computer Coach and she learned about our Tech Apprenticeship program and, without hesitation, she decided to jump in.

Throughout the program, she gained valuable technical skills in class and learned valuable real-world skills in the apprenticeship she was assigned to. She also learned there are more to IT jobs than the “technical stuff”.  She learned soft-skills are important too. "The course had its challenges, like the final assignment where I had to work with a team and deliver a presentation," said Genesis. "It forced me out of my comfort zone and to realize a tech-job is more than coding."  However, the journey was rewarding, as it pushed her to collaborate, communicate, exchange knowledge with her peers and grow.

The comprehensive training she received during the program has instilled in her the skills and mindset needed in the dynamic world of technology.
