Ramon Berrios rejoins the team as Manager, Career Advancement with Customized Training by Per Scholas. He is is a 2012 graduate who previously worked on the Admissions team. Ramon was able to continue his passion for helping others when he later moved into the classroom as a Career Coach for the core training track. He then joined New Initiatives where he supported curriculum development and coaching for students in pilot programs run by Per Scholas. He is excited to return and is looking forward to sharing his additional experiences and knowledge with the Platform team.
Ramon left Per Scholas in 2015 to join a startup bootcamp on Wall Street where he served as a career coach to software engineers and web developers. This helped him grow professionally and deepen his knowledge of personal branding and job searching strategies. He also learned GitHub and created a career curriculum and resource center for students and alumni, and also acted as SalesForce manager. He brings more than 17 years’ experience in client facing roles including five in career coaching.
An interesting quirk about Ramon is he doesn’t like paying full price. An extreme couponer, in his spare time, you can find him in the checkout lane with a fist full of coupons. He loves telling stories on how much he saves and enjoys helping anyone looking for free items.
