After joining the FCC nearly two months ago I was really dreaming of posting this. Every time reading that someone gets a job in IT without IT background made me more motivated and I hope my story will make you motivated as well.
I hold MA in Political Science and started to learn web development after three months of my graduation: August, 2016. By that time I was also working by my profession. I started with Codacademy and then joined local Code Camp in Armenia for two months. However, I could not devote much time to my learning as I was working as well. Then we moved to Canada and it has just passed four months and one bright day I am getting TWO web development offers (after applying for nearly 700 jobs). I will start my new job in two weeks and I am very excited about it.
Wish you guys success in finding jobs. And really it is very good to have these kind of resources to learn from.
Thank you FCC!!!
