Meet Eve: Social Worker Turned Software Developer

She shares about her job search, the hardest part of learning to code, and advice for others who are making a career switch.

Eve’s unique background in art and social work may seem unrelated to a software development career, but those skills are exactly why she had an offer in hand before she’d even graduated.

Hi Eve! Thanks for talking with us today. You recently shared about your background and decision to learn to code — was the process worth it?

What was the most challenging part of the past five months?

Tell us about your new job. How did you find out about the role?

What are you most looking forward to in your new career?

You were offered a job before you finished the course — what did your job search look like?

What do you think was the most important thing you did during your job search?

If you could go back and do anything different in your career change, what would it be?

Any advice for students who are getting ready to embark on this journey?
