SheCodes helped Maura discover that coding was actually fun, interesting, and something that she wanted to pursue as a career! 🙌 💻 She decided to start applying for jobs in development and got an offer within just a few weeks!
“The knowledge I gained in SheCodes was what gave me the confidence to start planning a career change. In SheCodes Responsive, I decided that I would make my final project a true portfolio/resume and use it to apply for jobs.”
“I got the job I currently have as a software developer thanks to SheCodes. I started sharing my portfolio project just to see what would happen, and I was offered a job within weeks.”
Maura is now working as a Software Developer at a practice management company based out of Texas. She spends her days writing code to improve the company software, answering customer support queries, and designing future software additions and updates. 🖥 She has countless benefits now that she didn’t have in her previous job. Maura says that SheCodes helped change much more than her career path - and we are so happy to hear this! 😄
“My job now allows me a lot more flexibility in my daily life than my old job. I no longer have to commute, I'm much more engaged in my work, and I have significantly higher pay.”
“I love SheCodes. My time learning with SheCodes changed not only my career path, but how I view myself and my own capabilities.”
In the future, Maura would like to evolve her coding creativity and collaboration. We can’t wait to see how her skills progress so she can reach her full coding potential! 😍
“In my coding future, I would like to see creativity and collaboration. One of the biggest surprises for me about the coding world was how creative you can truly be. Coming from an artistic background, this was a huge realization for me; I had always imagined tech to be nothing but data output, but the community of people sharing their work and creating new ways of solving problems is extremely inspiring to me, and I can't wait to learn more.”
