Daniel Nguyen

This training caught my eye while I was looking for another job. I did have some tech background, but the program was easy enough to follow without it. The instructors and mentors are so welcoming and helpful—it was such a great experience. Now I work fully remote in Utah for a company based in California.

Gilbert Baidya

I just accepted a role as a Sales Engineer in New York City for $120K! Thank you to the Careerist team as well as everyone who took this program with me! It literally changed my life!

Emmanuel Fadojutimi

I used to joke and say that Careerist can’t guarantee you a job, but they’re actually doing that now. Careerist is definitely going to give you exactly what you need to apply to a very, very in-demand job market right now. You’ll be equipped and you should be confident...There aren’t a lot of people doing cohorts like these, teaching them how to be sales engineers.

Elena Rosca

I want to thank the Careerist team for being so so professional and sharing their knowledge with me. I also want to thank them for being so helpful during the course and especially with job searching. I’m extremely grateful to Anastasia, who helped me through it. I already recommended Careerist to several people.

Kevin Navarrete

From the beginning of the Careerist course, they told us right away to connect with our mentor, which I think is one of the best things to do. The mentor was able to provide me with help with my LinkedIn and resume. I had messaged and they adjusted my resume. Some of the information they put on my resume I put on my LinkedIn.

Demontay Goolsby

"Earlier this week I did complete my resume and completed the overhaul of my LinkedIn account. We (my mentors and I) were working on the About Me section, and I noticed a huge change in views on my LinkedIn page after making all those adjustments in a matter of three days. So with the proper adjustments, I can honestly say it makes a difference. My mentor made some suggestions to use specific terms to make sure that my page pops out, and that’s been very helpful."

Clarence Smith

I went through the course and I learned a lot. And this is the biggest thing I’ve learned--I didn’t really have too much experience in sales or tech at the time, but I learned that in interviews and things like that it doesn’t really matter. You do need to understand it (i.e., the requirements of the job and the tech field in general), but it’s more about how you story-tell. The biggest thing is painting the picture for people and just being able to have a good conversation with whoever is interviewing you.

Andrew Manembu

My background has been sales my whole life until COVID happened, so I decided to become a behavioral analyst, which was a very stressful job. I work for Verizon now, and I’ve always been intrigued by tech. I saw Careerist, I did my research, and I also knew a person who had gone through the program, and I was really excited to be a part of it and just jump in.
