What People Say

When changing your career, you don’t want this uphill battle alone

I was a student at Portnov’s recently, which coincided with my recent immigration to the US and being laid off from a first job, not related to QA.

I was working as QA Tester back in the old country though, and coming over to the US and trying to land a job in SQA initially, I had faced with totally different level of requirements and expectations for QA Engineers.

So, after leaving the first workplace, rather than looking for something similar with the same pay range, a good friend of mine reminded me of Portnov’s and helped me a great deal with establishing contacts and starting a program.

The learning process itself was not only very insightful and up to date with current SQA trends and technologies, but also one that reaffirms students and help us with believing that this new step forward is actually possible. When changing your career, you don’t want this uphill battle alone, and Portnov Computer School sees it through that you are all caught up with the classes, but also afterwards they offer a number of internship opportunities, some of them paid, and even more of those with a perspective to be hired full-time.

Thanks to the time and effort spent here, I landed a Software Testing Engineer position just recently, feeling a lot more prepared than before, and if you face similar challenges in your SQA career right now – this is the place to take care of you.

Portnov Computer School changed my life!

I got a job immediately after graduating from the school. I do not have background in the tech industry. My job offer is 2x more than what I used to be making. I am really grateful that my friend told me about this school. You won’t regret going here.

I have absorbed and understood a ginormous amount of information

So here I am, I began my journey to become a QA engineer in the middle of July. Since then, I ve learned so much that… frankly… the word = ‘Learned’ isn’t the best fit here. No! I have absorbed and understood a ginormous amount of information. How many times in your life have you felt like you just need a chance? I was ready to go and do whatever it takes if only I got that opportunity. In late December, a few days before Christmas, I got my first job offer. Everyone’s first offer will be different, but I will now be making almost 2 times more than doing my previous job (2 jobs to be precise) and I am allowed to work remotely.

How far are you ready to go? How much of your free time are you willing to sacrifice?I must say that it took so much grit and so much persistence to become knowledgeable and be able to compete on the job market for QA. It is totally worth it! I can’t stress enough the value and diligent work of the school’s staff too. Guys and girls, ask questions, do your homework , don’t sleep if you have to, forget about other less important things and go get that job! People really are given all the tools and knowledge to achieve their goal but most importantly you are presented with the opportunity to be taught, schooled and guided by Janna, Olga, Anna, 2 Sofia’s and many other professionals who are always there for you if you show how dedicated you are.

P.S if you speak more than 2-3 languages, employers are even more eager to talk to you which leads you to interviews.

Their support even after your course is fantastic;

I strongly recommend Portnov Computer School to everyone who wants to change their career professionally. All the instructors are experienced and friendly enough to clarify all your doubts. The structure of their curriculum is always focused/based on market needs from a QA person so that it will help each student to shine in their employment.

Their support even after your course is fantastic; it even made my husband raise his eyebrow in a good way. This is something that hard to see in this fast-moving world. I appreciate all the help which they are providing to all the students. My special thanks to all the excellent souls for working hard to shape every student’s career.

Finally, if you need to start/change your career, this is the right place to begin. I wish you all the very best.
