I found a full-time job even before the course was over and that was in the middle of the pandemic, thanks to everything I learned in the course and help with the career success team. I couldn’t be happier with the choice of DCI to change my career and pursue my passions.

The DCI is providing me the opportunity to learn from teachers who share their extended knowledge. It was one of the few institutions that has been able to deal with the COVID-19 situation, by going from offline classes to remote lessons without a drop in quality.

I studied Sociology, then Agricultural studies, but I left both universities. I guess now I just found the best combination of social, technical, and meaningful job ever. I would encourage all women out there to learn tech jobs. This whole tech industry urgently needs the social spirit of women.
