In 6 months, your life can take a turn for the better, just like it happened to Simona Ilcheva - a super-mom of two who dreamed of working for a top-notch product company (Intermedia) and made this her reality.
Going back to the road not taken
Simona's interest in coding started back in university. She had some programming experience, and the coding world intrigued her, but she had yet to pursue a career in tech. She had already heard a lot about Telerik Academy when she decided to go for it.
"I knew about Telerik Academy before considering the program. I've always thought highly of it", she shares.
Overcoming initial challenges
Simona made a bold move and enrolled in Telerik Academy's fundamentals course. It seemed like an excellent fit for people like her, curious but unsure. With the help of experienced people by her side, she was ready to embark on a journey of change.
"The course is a great opportunity for the hesitant ones. It allows them to try and see if coding is a good fit for them."
The start was tough, and Simona felt a bit overwhelmed at first. "I started having doubts if i could make it. The beginning is the hardest. What helped me the most were my colleagues in our buddy group. It was of great help to rely on someone, " she says.
Her excitement and enthusiasm are what kept her going. The joy of creating something from the ground up was an incredible inspiration for Simona. "The feeling is great! To build a working application from scratch." she shares with enthusiasm.
One of our partner companies was so impressed by Simona that she got a job interview invite straight from them.
"Telerik Academy teaches you not to be afraid of challenges, " says Simona, who aced the interview and landed her dream job as a frontend developer at our partners Intermedia.
