Case Study

Emily Worrall

Maths graduate to Junior Developer Festicket

My Makers Academy experience was incredible.

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

I graduated from university of East Anglia in Maths.

What made you want to start learning to code in the first place?

I wanted to be creative in what I did in my career but I didn't want to follow the same path nearly every other maths graduate does and go into accounting etc. I also wanted to use my problem solving skills too.

How did you come across Makers Academy and what made you decide to apply?

I heard through a friend who was applying to a bootcamp and came across Makers Academy.

What happened during/after graduation and where are you job-wise?

I started of by working on personal projects and keeping my skills up and started to apply to jobs properly in January and then got a job at Festicket.

What advice would you give to people thinking of changing career?

Take a leap of faith!

What do you say to people who say £8000 is expensive?

It's a small price to pay for the investment in your future.

What as your biggest worry before joining Makers Academy and how do you feel about it now?

I was worried that the workload would be way too much but I managed it well.

Sum up your Makers Academy experience

Incredible.
