Name:

Jessica Mach

Current Occupation:

Software Engineer II

Why did you decide to work with Apprenti?

I received an email from my local unemployment office. I was already studying programming on my own and saw this as an opportunity to take my learning to the next level.

What impact has Apprenti had on your career?

Without Apprenti, I would not have been able to transition to a career as a software engineer. I needed Apprenti to get my foot in the door so I could prove my skills. I had been laid off before Apprenti. Now, I have a job that I love. I’m a cancer widow and single mom. My new job means I have good health insurance, flexible hours, and the ability to work from home. It means I have the resources to care for my kids, and even better, I have regular hours and can spend quality time with them. Thank you so much! Truly life-changing.

Would you recommend Apprenti?

Absolutely. I’d recommend it to anyone.

Name:

 Zha’Quon “Z” Poindexter

Current Occupation:

Software Developer I

How did you first learn about Apprenti?

My company, Total Quality Logistics (TQL), partnered with Apprenti to reskill people already employed at the company and bring them into tech roles. This was just the perfect opportunity for me.

What impact has Apprenti had on your career?

I uprooted my life and moved out to Cincinnati, Ohio for this. Since then, I’ve been provided with an amazing career and get to experience it with amazing people. It has drastically changed my life for the better.

Would you recommend Apprenti?

I would recommend it to anyone interested in tech. Apprenti’s training partners and resources will ensure that they learn what they need to.

Name:

Breanna Thompson

Current Occupation:

Software Engineer I at Microsoft

How did you first learn about Apprenti?

I learned about Apprenti through a radio ad! I decided to do more research online and it seemed like such an amazing opportunity.

What impact has Apprenti had on your career?

It has changed my life for the better. As a little girl, my opa would tell me stories of how he crashed satellites into the moon for research during his college days and programmed them using COBOL. I never really knew outside of that story that someone could code as a career.

Apprenti took that chance on me to develop as an engineer and completely changed the trajectory of my career. They supported me through the entire process. They sent me to one of the top boot camps and set me up with an amazing sponsor. I cannot thank Apprenti enough for this life-changing opportunity.

Would you recommend Apprenti?

I cannot thank Apprenti enough for allowing me to finally follow my passion and for giving me a chance. Apply today!
