Per Scholas AWS re/Start Alumni, Olumuyiwa Kolayemi, Interviewed by Amazon Web Services
Olumuyiwa Kolayemi, an alumni of Per Scholas Greater Boston’s AWS re/Start course, was interviewed by Amazon Web Services about his experiences at and beyond his time at Per Scholas. The interview is featured on Amazon Web Services’ official YouTube channel.
“[The program] was a 4-month training,” Olumuyiwa recalled in the interview. “It was very intensive, but it was very encouraging. I felt very supported by the instructors and the other people in the program.
Olumuyiwa, a native of Nigeria, graduated from Per Scholas’ AWS re/Start course in 2021, and has since returned to Per Scholas for an alumni cybersecurity upskilling course.
Upon completing the AWS re/Start course, Olumuyiwa’s instructors helped him prepare for job interviews. He has since landed a job as a Platform Engineer at Slalom Build, where he works to this day.
Olumuyiwa is glad that he is now able to support his family, including his family members back in Nigeria. “I have been able to enjoy a lot of rapid progression in the two years since I started my tech journey,” Olumuyiwa said. “It has really changed my life.”
