πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» SheCodes Success Story

Gamze

How SheCodes Max empowered Gamze to switch her Researcher job for a Junior Front-End Developer role.

πŸ™β€β™€οΈ Before SheCodes

This is Gamze! originally from Istanbul, TΓΌrkiye πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·, she decided to relocate to Amsterdam πŸ‡³πŸ‡±, a few years ago. She worked for five years in medical research, managing projects and improving her teamwork and communication skills.

Despite her academic success, Gamze was looking for a career shift. The idea of moving into the IT field had been on her mind for years, but she was afraid it was too late to start something new πŸ‘©β€πŸ’». Inspired by the Dutch culture that values joy in the workplace, and encouraged by her friends, she finally decided to start learning how to code on her own.

However, she was still looking for a comprehensive workshop, that could explain every concept from scratch, and enable her to progress in this field. After stumbling upon SheCodes’ Free 60-minute coding class, she was convinced it was perfect for her and decided to join SheCodes Max.

β€œAfter I became certain of my desire to progress in this field, I began searching for a suitable course. (...) After attending the first free lesson, I was convinced that it was the perfect fit for me.”

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Her SheCodes Experience

Gamze's journey through SheCodes Max was both enlightening and enjoyable πŸ™Œ. Right from the start, she found the workshops engaging and filled with practical knowledge. The helpful responses to her questions made a significant difference. Whenever she encountered challenges or needed clarification, the SheCodes team was always ready to assist, ensuring she never felt alone in her learning path.

β€œI truly felt their continuous presence and guidance throughout the entire journey.”

The constant presence and guidance of the team greatly boosted her confidence and kept her motivated throughout the course. This sense of community made her coding journey not just a learning experience, but also an enjoyable time 🀝.

πŸ™‹ How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

After finishing her SheCodes Workshops, Gamze's life took an exciting turn πŸš€. In just two months, she landed a new job, a success she credits to the skills and knowledge gained from SheCodes. The workshops were key in getting her ready for the job market and boosting her confidence in the IT world.

β€œAfter completing the course, it took me approximately two months to secure a new job. I was thrilled to find employment relatively quickly, which I attribute in part to the skills and knowledge I acquired during my SheCodes experience.”

Now, Gamze is rocking her role as a Junior Front-End Developer, where she works on developing and maintaining two important software packages for the team 🌟. SheCodes not only provided her with the technical skills but also the confidence to embark on this new chapter in her career.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’Ό Advice to Future SheCodes Student

Gamze has some valuable tips for those starting their coding journey with SheCodes. She advises setting aside time each day for learning. Watching the workshop videos more than once and doing the homework is key. She emphasizes the importance of using the resources in each lesson to the fullest.

β€œAllocate dedicated time every day to learn to code. Review the course videos repeatedly and diligently complete your homework assignments. Take advantage of the helpful resources provided in each lesson.”

She also suggests keeping track of what you've learned and practicing by adding your own creative touch to coding projects. This, she believes, builds confidence and skill.

For job interviews, Gamze recommends showing how your new skills can help in your role. It's important to share your excitement for learning more. Showing that you're eager and passionate about gaining new skills can really impress employers.

β€œPrioritize interview preparation and demonstrate to potential employers how your newly acquired skills and knowledge will contribute to your professional growth in the role.”

In short, Gamze's advice is to be diligent, creative, and enthusiastic in your learning and job hunt. This approach, she believes, can take you far in your coding career. πŸŒŸπŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

πŸŽ‰ Gamze’s SheCodes Workshops Testimonials:
β€œAfter the introductory class, I signed up for the SheCodes Max workshop. I worked day and night for three months and finished all the workshops. Matt taught everything in great detail and easily. SheCodes Team responded quickly to all my questions. Everything was just perfect. πŸ’œ If you come from a different field like me and don't know where to start, SheCodes is for you. Thank you so much for everything. I hope I can continue my life with a new job soon.”
