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 training and especially with job searching. I’m extremely grateful to Anastasia, who helped me through it. I already recommended Careerist to several people.

From the beginning of the Careerist training, 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.

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.
