Support Technician Lead
Kemazee Cooper is currently a Support Technician Lead at Capgemini in Atlanta. He was always interested in technology as one of the most prosperous career paths and often found himself fixing phones and computers for friends growing up.
Before applying for Per Scholas and considering a tech career, Kemazee was a social worker for a nonprofit organization and decided to start considering IT roles. Once in Per Scholas’ training, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and training became remote. There, Kemazee was able to stay disciplined throughout the training and focus on his skills. After graduation, Kemazee accepted an internship with Capgemini where he learned more about the field and different aspects of technology and was eventually hired on fully. “Per Scholas prepared me for situations I may see in the field as we went through a lot of scenarios, workshops, and labs,” he recalled. Next, Kemazee plans to earn an AWS certification and aims to become a mentor for others interested in tech. “It’s been pretty life-changing and I am very grateful for everything Per Scholas has done for me,” Kemazee reflected about the opportunities he experienced.
