I joined Industry Connect, completed the course, and never looked back since!
Victor had a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Auckland, but decided it wasn’t for him.
Luckily Industry Connect was on hand to help train him in a completely new subject, and it took us three months instead of the three years his degree took!
Why it’s never too late to change your career path
Ask yourself this question: A year from now, what do I wish I had started a year ago?
If you’re stuck in a job you don’t enjoy, or made a career decision too early in your life, there’s always time to change things.
Victor is a great example of that.
After spending years doing his degree, he soon realised that he wasn’t happy in his chosen career.
What did he do?
He changed his life.
You can too.
It’s not as hard as you think to switch careers
A friend recommended Industry Connect to Victor, but he was worried it would lead to nothing.
Six months later he was working as a software developer.
“I joined up and I completed the course and never looked back since!”
“The six-weeks I did a complete six-week software development course, and Industry Connect taught me all the basics of software engineering and a little bit more of the advanced stuff on how they really do it in the real world.
“Soon after I completed the six weeks course, I joined an internship program at Amiy Plus, which has been absolutely fantastic.
“And it’s not just the technical skills, we’ve learned how to work together in a team, we’re doing meetings all the time, we’re doing interview training for jobs… I mean this has been just being really good.
“It’s all about working hard really; you stick to your routine, you try and come to work every single day, and keep applying and you’ll get there eventually.
“Just keep practicing that’s all I have to say!”
