made it in qa

Nivethitha Thirumurthisamy

The three-month manual QA program was really good. It helped me get to know the basics, and the tutors taught it in a way that anyone can easily understand. They guided me through any doubts I had along the way and helped me get better.

Temmie Sidas

Careerist was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I lived in a low income bracket my entire life, but now Careerist has allowed me to finally have a stable income and a better life. They gave me the knowledge and experience I needed to jump into the field, and I couldn't be happier.

Nkaime Norbert

My experience with Careerist has been nothing but memorable and extremely fruitful. The instructors are very knowledgable and patient. They helped me write my resume, did mock interviews, assisted with my job search, and even gave me advice as a new employee. I recommend Careerist to everyone.

Veronika Karpova

I started the QA course in January and got a job in August. I had zero knowledge of the industry, but that didn't stop me from switching to this career with successful results. I'm incredibly thankful to everyone at Careerist! Do I recommend this place for starting your career in tech? 10,000% YES!
