David's Success Story
The realities of life can be a great motivator. David found Exerceo as his vehicle for change. He was nearing the end of his time as a student employee, graduation was steadily getting closer, and he needed to make a change. For David, participating in all four of Exerceo's Information Technology Programs and the prospect of being offered a job was enticing. He stayed involved because he was learning, being challenged, and the environment leant itself to successfully learn new technologies.
David expected to be challenged - "I really expected that I would be in an environment that would challenge me, help me grow and help me build myself up while helping out others. What I got, much to my excitement, was exactly that."
Java was a big focus of David's learning. He hadn't used the language in a while and it took him a bit of work to get back up to speed but he credits the great mentors who were able to help him through the challenge. David tells us, "What I really enjoyed about the program was being challenged but not feeling like I was floundering. There was always someone I could go to talk to if I had a question or to help me work through a difficult problem. I always felt part of the team. After the program, I felt like I had learned something. I had diversified my skill set and made myself more desirable as an employee."
David is now working as a System Administrator. Although it's not what his focus was on while in the program, he finds that he is able to apply everything he learned during his normal duties. "Being able to script a repeatable task makes complex tasks take less time and less prone to errors" he says is invaluable...no doubt to his employer too!
