I never really knew how to communicate professionally or sell myself in an interview, but with the management and development team at Per Scholas, I was able to build on my mindset, my character, and my technical skills. I am grateful for Per Scholas in many ways.

Andre Yates

Software Developer at Capgemini

Java Developer

As I was applying and going through interviews, there was a gap between where my college education brought me and where companies expected me to know things about the technology industry. Per Scholas taught me so much that I wasn’t able to learn in school.

As a single parent, I wasn’t making enough money to afford to go to a coding boot camp. When I found Per Scholas, it challenged me, and though it wasn’t easy, it was worth it. I graduated debt-free and could be an example to my daughter.

During my training at Per Scholas there was a ton of support, especially from the other women and other non-traditional learners that also had the same thoughts I had. They told me it’s not too late to go into doing what you really want to do.

Software Engineer at Capgemini

Software Engineering

At a certain point as I looked into tech, I really started to get interested in software engineering and decided that was what I was going to do and that I was going to do whatever it took. Once I had that mindset, I looked at Per Scholas as more of an opportunity than a challenge.
