PABLO QUINTANA Ex-RAN now PEGA legend
After leaving the Royal Australian Navy, I found it difficult to adapt to anything new. I went from being a cook in a cafe to a janitor and was even considering working at a fast-food restaurant. None of my skills at the time felt transferable. That changed when I found WithYouWithMe and heard about their partnership with Pega.
I couldn’t believe I’d get paid to learn and upskill in their low-code platform, and then be offered a job at the end of the training straight away, it almost seemed too good to be true.
DAVID ATTWOOD From RAF to Accenture as a PEGA junior developer
It is 100% daunting having to prepare your resume post service to give to employers. My resume was completely based on my experiences as a Royal Airforce (RAF) Specialist. My resume did list my skills, but I found employers wanted relevant work experience.
I lacked the technical expertise I knew I needed to get a job in IT. I was uncertain about finding a job while finding time to and money to pay for training. I was anxious about the future. The WYWM aptitude test showed me my strengths. The test results indicated that a career in low coding would be a great match for my personal skillset. Through the support of WithYouWithMe, I transitioned from my position with the RAF and into a role as a PEGA junior developer for Accenture UK.
SAMANTHA GILLISON From UK Met Police to Northrop Grumman as a full stack developer
I worked as a UK Met Police officer for almost 7 years. At the age of 24, I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome. This diagnosis was unexpected and changed my life. Astriid, a disability employment NFP, referred me to WithYouWithMe and assured me that WithYouWithMe would help me find a job that offered a healthy work/life balance.
