Pamela

From Tech Recruiter to Platform Engineer: How SheCodes helped Pamela take her career to the next level.

πŸ™β€β™€οΈ Before SheCodes

Introducing Pamela! A dynamic individual from Colombia living in MedellΓ­n πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄. She has always been an avid gamer and animal lover, sharing her home with six dogs and three cats 😻. Before her journey with SheCodes, Pamela worked as a tech recruiter, a role that had her immersed in the IT world, hiring professionals across various tech domains. Her expertise in identifying the right talent in tech, from software engineers to project managers, earned her the reputation of a true "tech recruiter." πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

"In order to perform an accurate search I had to study all techs and sat down with the engineering team to understand the needs and know every detail so I wouldn’t lose a good candidate. I was a great recruiter!!”

Despite her success, Pamela craved a deeper understanding of the tech she was recruiting for. She wanted to be more than just a recruiter who understood tech; she aimed to become a recruiter who could code. This ambition led her to SheCodes, attracted by its mission to empower women in technology, an area where she knew female presence was vital but often lacking. 🌟

Pamela's journey into coding was initially challenging, with moments of doubt, but her determination and the support from her professional network kept her motivated. She saw this as an opportunity not just for personal growth but also to inspire other women to venture into the tech field. πŸš€

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Her SheCodes Experience

Pamela's time at SheCodes was both fun and full of learning. The way the courses were set up really helped her understand a lot about coding. Matt's way of teaching made complex ideas easy and interesting, which was great for Pamela as she started to dive deeper into the world of technology. πŸŒŸπŸ’»

β€œWhile building the weather app and connecting the API to my app I had my eureka moment! All the knowledge I had as a recruiter made sense. Seeing it live and working properly made me feel so proud of myself πŸ₯ΉπŸ˜ I had tears in my eyes of happiness”

Have you ever had a moment when everything just clicks?
For Pamela, that moment was during the creation of a weather app in SheCodes Plus. Integrating the API with her application, she experienced a thrilling "eureka" moment. The successful functioning of her app was a proud testament to her hard-earned skills πŸš€.

Pamela's story with SheCodes highlights the exhilarating journey of learning and the transformation it brings, both professionally and personally πŸ’«.

πŸ™‹ How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

SheCodes truly transformed Pamela's life, opening doors to exciting new roles in the tech world. Thanks to the skills and confidence she gained from SheCodes, Pamela first stepped into the role of a web engineer and has now progressed to become a Junior Platform Engineer at Pager, a company she adores. πŸŒŸπŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

The SheCodes Workshops played a crucial role in her career shift. Pamela's role at Pager involves working with JavaScript and React, where she applies the skills learned at SheCodes to maintain and develop an internal tool. Beyond this, she's constantly expanding her tech knowledge, embracing new challenges with confidence. πŸš€

Pamela's journey with SheCodes has sparked more than just personal growth. She is now sharing her knowledge with recruiters, teaching them the basics to better understand the tech world.

β€œNow I know that I’m capable of doing tough things and being successful if I put my mind to it. Especially if you have a community that inspires you as the SheCodes community!”

SheCodes not only provided her with a solid technical foundation, but it also helped her believe that she could learn anything. This self-confidence is a key factor in her ongoing success and growth in her career. 🀩

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

Pamela has some invaluable advice for future SheCodes students, drawn from her own transformative journey: "Never give up!" She understands that the learning process can be confusing at first, but reassures that with persistence, everything will eventually make sense and click into place. 🌟

Pamela believes that pursuing a career in coding is not just about solving technical problems; it's about seeing each challenge as an opportunity to find solutions. She encourages students to adopt this positive mindset, viewing obstacles not as setbacks, but as chances to grow and learn. πŸš€

Another key piece of advice from Pamela is the importance of community and teamwork. She emphasizes that being part of a supportive community is crucial 🀝:

β€œFinally relay in a community: teamwork makes the dream work!”

Pamela, we’re inspired by all your achievements!! We can’t wait to see where your coding journey takes you next πŸš€
