After finishing SheCodes, Jéssica changed her career path from an Industrial Engineer working in Quality Management to a Junior Front-end Developer. She found her current role through a post in the SheCodes Slack from a former student whose company was looking for a developer. She started working as a junior front-end developer shortly after her SheCodes experience. We’re so proud! 💜
“After I finished the first workshop I wanted to learn more and explore this path, so I signed up for the SheCodes Plus Workshop where I learned more JS and React and after that I was certain I wanted to at least try working as a developer so I immediately started looking for a job or internship opportunity. And I was able to apply for a job and complete their challenge right after the workshop with all I had learned in SheCodes and the capability it gave me to know how to search and filter new information and resolve issues. I got my first job as a junior front-end developer just a little more than a month after SheCodes and I am incredibly happy to have this opportunity to do something that I love as a job. So thank you Matt and all the SheCodes team for making this opportunity possible.”
Compared to her previous job, Jéssica enjoys her current job as a developer a lot more. She really enjoys her daily work, developing new skills, and the diversity in the work that she does. Her team and work environment are also really enjoyable. Plus, she has some job perks that she didn’t have before! 😊
“First and foremost, I really enjoy my current job and the actual work more as a developer than as an industrial engineer. Comparing it with my former work experiences I earn more, have more flexible work hours and I am able to work remotely being from home or a co-working space the company provided.”
We are so happy that Jéssica is thriving in her new job and is enjoying working as a front-end developer. 🤩 In her coding future, she’d like to dive into back-end development and deepen her development knowledge. We can’t wait to see her coding skills continue to grow and the future projects that she’ll create!
