“I really enjoyed how the TLG instructors were able to relate concepts to real life scenarios. The program guided me through a lot of information that would be nearly impossible to get through on my own. The program quickly got me to a functional level that allowed me to be hired immediately following the program as an Associate Systems Engineer apprentice. I continue to grow my skills on the job and look forward to a long career in IT. “
"Do it! If you really want a career in this industry you've got to dive in head first and take the plunge. Expect and even WANT to make mistakes, especially in the beginning. Mistakes are one of, if not, THE best way to learn.
I really enjoyed the mini "bootcamp" that Michelle put together … it gave me the edge to succeed and I use the lessons I learned every day in my current position as a Software Engineer."
"The TLG instructors were welcoming and supportive which made for a great learning experience. The opportunity is worth it!! You will be challenged every day but don’t doubt yourself. The personal growth is nearly limitless. Remember that no matter how large the task is you can always break it down into smaller and more manageable pieces. I am now working as a Cloud Support Associate. Thank you TLG!!"
