Robyn made the switch from Customer Service to Software Development.
Robyn grew up watching her mother mark her students programming projects. Robyn’s fascination and curiosity led her to start writing code from the time she was eight years old. Robyn was sold, one day she would be a developer! Robyn felt that having an IT qualification would assist her in achieving her career goals. After researching courses she decided to study at Computer Power Institute as the Diploma of Software Development had the content she was after.
Shortly before completing her diploma, Robyn began working with Computer Power’s National Placement Consultant. Together they created a new resume and worked on the best approach to writing application letters.
Highly motivated to find a job, Robyn worked tirelessly on her job search. Part of an application involved creating a website which the prospective employer evaluated. Robyn then had to pass technical tests before being invited back for a final interview.
The effort was worth it – after a successful final interview, Robyn is now a Junior Software Developer; a position she secured less than two months after finishing her Computer Power diploma.
