From teacher

A new career path!

Jari is a Data Analyst working on projects for the Canadian federal government. Jari feels as though WithYouWithMe has been giving a new start to his life. He wakes up in the morning and is excited to start his work day.

Jari says, “I had always longed for a job I was passionate about but didn’t know how I could possibly change careers and certainly didn’t think I could break into a lucrative tech career. Then I came across the WithYouWithMe program and that all changed. I completed free online training and very quickly received a call about a role. I interviewed and landed my first job in tech, working as a Data Analyst in the federal government. That was almost two years ago – and I’ve never been more motivated or fulfilled. I’m really passionate about sharing this experience with people."

Leaving his previous career behind was one of the hardest decisions Jari has ever made, but each day he is more and more confident he made the right decision.
