Case Study

Heather Campbell

Product Owner to Software Developer at Trayport

After graduation I went to the careers fair. Went to an interview with a hiring partner through that and got a job! It all happened very quickly

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

I was working as a product owner at a mobile agency.

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

I was frustrated of not being able to build the products myself.

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

Just by googling and I saw some blog posts of people who had done the course and that made me decide to apply.

What did you find difficult during the course?

I found information overload very difficult!

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

It all happened very quickly. Went to the careers fair, went to an interview with a hiring partner and through that got a job!

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

What's the worst that could happen?

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

It's an insane amount of money but for changing your career in 3 months I felt like it was worth it.

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

That I just would not be able to do it or be a good coder and I still worry about that but I know it is just a matter of time rather than it being unachievable.
