Alex's journey

Alex worked in several industries after leaving the UK Ministry of Defence. Prior to connecting with WithYouWithMe, Alex had been working in the Steel industry, then as a Personal Trainer, as well as an Uber Eats and Just Eat delivery driver to make ends meet.

While looking for more stable work, Alex was interacting with the UK veteran community. Eventually, he was introduced to WithYouWithMe. Alex appreciated that WYWM were offering free courses that he could complete in his own time and earn industry-recognised certifications.

Free training, 
then certified.

Alex started training in the Project Management Pipeline, and upon completion, he received his Project Officer Certification. From there he was offered an interview with Accenture, which he accepted. He was placed on the low code Pega Business Architect pipeline.

Alex earned his certification and is now Pega System Architect Certified and a Pega Business Architect. He obtained these certifications courtesy of WYWM's free training courses.
