What People are Saying
“BrainStation was one of the best experiences of my life. It introduced me to the tech industry in such a fantastic way. I hit the ground running and have been set on an incredibly positive trajectory of which I never before thought possible.”
“Besides learning programming languages and concepts, we also learned how to give a presentation, how to network and make an impression. After the program ended, we got extra material to help us get a job. As I finished my last week, I already had a meeting with a company's CEO for a potential position.”
“My experience at BrainStation really impacted my career as it put me in a position to get the job I have today. It was at BrainStation's demo day, where students are able to demonstrate their capstone projects to hiring partners, that I made my initial contact with my current employer. The access to BrainStation's professional network put me in the position I am in today, which really solidified my decision to enroll in the Web Development program.”
“Thanks to BrainStation's vast industry connections, I was able to attend several tech tours and step into the Toronto tech world for the first time. Prior to BrainStation, I wasn't in touch with the tech community at all, and being part of the program helped me see how important digital skills have become in career development, and how it will continue to evolve in the future.”
