Here’s a story for you:
“I just finished my degree in Computer Science and for the first time in my life, I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to do next. All the companies I’ve applied to want some form of experience (how do you get experience when you cant get a job?). They wouldn’t even let me work for free.
My ex-girlfriend just introduced me to this really cool program. I can get to teach computing (feel useful and get paid while at it), learn during the holidays (get experience and certifications) and get hired after the program. Maybe my future isn’t so bleak after all :)”
