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.
Jr. Software Engineer
Rachel Powe is a Jr. Software Engineer at Capgemini. She initially started as an intern at Capgemini, but quickly moved into her current position with her tenacity and passion for technology. Rachel noted that there wasn’t a big push for women in tech when she was attending college, so she didn’t pursue a future in technology then.
Once graduated from Per Scholas’s Software Engineering course, she went into her internship role and was given the opportunity to build herself, her skills, and complete additional certifications through Capgemini. She reflects, “I would definitely recommend this training, especially for someone that is just starting out, because it will help you identify what you want to do with your career and expose you to the other aspects of being a developer.” Rachel took advantage of every opportunity she had because of the tenacity instilled in her during her training with Per Scholas and Capgemini. “I don’t think I would have been in this position so soon after graduating if it weren’t for Per Scholas, the partnerships they have, and how much they wanted us to succeed.”
