Crucial Decision to Change Career.
Now, when taking a look over my shoulder at February 2022, I realize how crucial the decision to join Portnov Computer School was for the change of my career. Enormous support from the school and its teachers as well as lots of studying and interaction with group mates do not leave a single PCS student behind in the learning process. Throughout the whole course, I always knew that whatever technical or course-related questions I had, I could always get clear and professional responses from the school and our teachers, who are real professionals with many years of experience in QA and IT. I’d like to extend special thanks to Janna, Olga, Mike, Artem, Luiza, Sofia, Yan, and Galina for their patience, professionalism, and support I was receiving during and after the completion of the course. So, now a year has passed by, and I work as a QA engineer, am advancing my test automation skills at PCS’ boot camp, and continue to progress with learning Java, fundamentals of which I learned in our technical classes at PCS. I have and will certainly recommend this school to my friends and those who are ready to work hard to start their careers in QA.

Today, 01/17/2023, I got a job offer! For such a short period of time, my instructors were able to give me all the tools and information I needed in order to succeed. I want to thank Janna, for the wonderful lectures, and for her heartfelt educational approach. She explained thoroughly and understandably! I want to thank Artem, for being professional and patient, which meant a lot to me. He explained difficult techniques in simple-minded ways. I want to thank Galina R, for her help and kindness. I had Job Clearance with Galina, and she was able to create a very welcoming atmosphere.
It was very pleasant and easy to talk to her. She was always interested in my success, and took the time to consult me through my interviews. Some of it was done on her free time. It allowed me to gain confidence, and helped me get my job offer!
I suggest that every student meets with Galina!
