Event Details

Looking to transform your career? Interested in entering the world of tech but not sure where to start? Join us for a discussion with some of our most successful graduates who will share their experiences before, during and after our Full-time Programs–moderated by our Senior Manager of said programs.

BrainStation's Full-time Programs prepare you for a new career in technology. They are intensive, collaborative and rewarding learning experiences where no two days are the same. Get a chance to hear directly from our employed graduates about their journey through our program. Their stories are prime examples as to why we stand behind our student success rates (Over 90% of our Full-time grads are hired within 6-months).

Shifting her career from tourism to design, learn how Jacquie entered into her current role as a product designer after our Full-time UX program. When she's not designing, she's working on a podcast focused on wellness, positivity, and personal growth.

From chemist to developer, learn how Ben became a full stack developer following our Full-time Web Development program and how this garnered his user-centric development approach.

From CPA to developer, learn how Nathan utilized his diverse background in technology and finance as the driving force behind his MERN stack focus as a full stack developer. 

Architect turned User Experience Designer, Setareh transitioned into a Visual Designer role following her Full-time User Experience Design program at BrainStation.

With a Bachelor of Science, Alice sought out a career pivot into development. Since her time in our Full-time Web Development program, she's become a Front End Developer, mentored others in a Teaching Assistant role and is now an Agile Software Engineer.

Discover how diverse backgrounds and a drive to learn can propel you into a exciting career in technology.
