Meet Rob: From Math Teacher to Software Design Engineer

Hi Rob! Thanks for sharing your story with us today. Let’s start off with some background on your recent career change. What were you doing before becoming a software developer?

What made you decide to transition into coding, and why Code Fellows?

How so?

What was your favorite project you built during your program?

After you graduated, you spent some time as a TA. Did that affect your understanding of coding?

Congrats on your new job at Concur! Tell us about your job search and interview process.

What’s been most surprising about your new career?

Teaching and software development seem unrelated, but I’m guessing there are skills you learned as a teacher that you’re still using in your new career. Do you find that to be the case?

If someone was considering a career change similar to the one you made, what would you tell them?

Anything else you’d like to share?
