I WAS OUT OF WORK FOR TWO YEARS, AND NOW I MAKE SEVERAL THOUSAND €/MONTH
After: QA Engineer at PPI AG
Before the course: Sales Manager
"After moving abroad, I couldn't find job for two years. I completed a full-stack course at Tel-Ran and learned programming from scratch. Now I work as a QA-engineer in the automation testing department. We write tests in Java. At the moment, I earn several thousand euros in my new position. For someone who hasn't worked in an international company at all before, I think it's a great start!"
"Before my current role, I worked as an estimating engineer. My background is in construction. I wanted a change in my career, so I enrolled in the back-end development course. I chose Tel-Ran because it's the only IT school that teaches this kind of technology in Berlin. What I liked about the classes was that the instructors were responsive and gave very structured information. Also, it was great that we studied for 9 months at a relaxed pace, which helped us to better absorb knowledge and avoid messing up our heads. I got a job a month before the course ended and increased my income by 30%."

GOT A JOB AND INCREASED MY INCOME BY 30% BEFORE COMPLETING THE COURSE
"Before the course, I was a hockey player. I got injured and my career ended there. Later, I found Tel-Ran and decided to take a course. At first, I mastered the basic skills of front-end and back-end, Java, Spring, etc. After I finished the course, I continued working on my final project for another month, learning new features. The career department helped me with the job search and resume. I had 4 interviews and received 2 job offers. Now I work for an IT company, which helped me with the relocation."

FROM HOCKEY PLAYER TO IT WITH EMPLOYER RELOCATION ASSISTANCE
"I realized that I needed something new because my old profession wasn't interesting. I heard about Tel-Ran courses from my friend, who is a programmer, and I decided to try it. After the training, I was looking for a job for nearly two months through Linkedin. I understood that I had more chances in European companies because there was less competition. I had a few interviews and got one offer. I still work with this company and I'm very satisfied! Recently, I even got a raise."
Before the course: Office Manager
NOW I'M CONFIDENT ABOUT TOMORROW
"I'm a musician by trade and I'm unsettled by nature. I thought that my liberal arts knowledge was not enough to work in IT and that I would soon get tired of sitting in front of a screen. It turned out to be quite the opposite — when I began to write my own program, improve it, and alter some parts of the code, I liked it. At times I didn't want to sleep, I just wanted to write code! A pleasant bonus is that now I get paid many times more than I could have imagined, even when I enrolled in the program. The quality of life has increased manifold, thanks to Tel-Ran."
Before the course: Musician
After: Java Back-End Developer
EVEN A LIBERAL ARTS STUDENT COULD DO IT
"I got tired of my old job and thought about a career change. That's how the idea of shifting to QA engineering came about. I got all the necessary knowledge and experience during the training to get to work. The school also helped me write my resume and held a mock job interview in English and Russian. I received support from the school's management and teachers until I found my job. Now I am working at Weavr as a мQA Engineer and I can confidently say that my knowledge from the "Back-end developer" course came in handy in my work."

TURNED MY LIFE 180° AND DISCOVERED MY PASSION
"My previous work did not meet my expectations and I decided to change my profession. I decided to move to the IT sphere and took the "Front-end-developer" course at Tel-Ran. I was successfully employed within a couple of months after the training. Now I work as a Junior Front-End Web Developer and finally get satisfaction and decent pay for what I do."
Before the course: Project Manager in Medical Tourism
After: Junior Front-End Web Developer
I'M FINALLY ENJOYING MY WORK AND RECEIVING DECENT PAY/COMPENSATION
"After moving I tried to find a job in my specialty, but it didn't work out. I decided to learn something new and chose QA testing. I liked the program at Tel-Ran and I signed up for the training! The most valuable thing for me was the experience and the teachers' responsiveness, and also the friendly atmosphere. I didn't have any problem finding a job; I found three vacancies, sent my CV, and received two invitations for the interviews. Even before I finished the course, I got an offer. The main thing is not to be afraid of anything. If you have goals and motivation, everything will work out!"
Before the course: Data Entry Specialist
After: Software Test Engineer
THE HARDEST THING IS TO CHOOSE AN OFFER, THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM NOW
"After moving, I realized that I didn't have enough training to find a job. I made the decision to study and chose Starta Institute, because I had the opportunity to take a course in Russian. I want to say that the teachers were very responsive and tried to help in any situation. For me, it was important that even when I asked questions off-subject, I still got answers that helped me understand. After the training, I got a job as a full-stack developer. At the time of signing the official contract, I had completed the course 4 just months prior. I have been working in this company on a part-time basis and it has been very good."
Before the course: Worked at a university’s Department of Informatics
After: Full-Stack Developer
I HAVE THE SKILLS TO SECURE POSITIONS AT TOP COMPANIES WITH HIGH COMPENSATION
"Before the course, I was on maternity leave, which took too long because I had to move. I was looking for new opportunities, so I decided to study full-stack, thinking that it would be cool to understand both the front-end and the back-end of development. The thing I liked about studying at Tel-Ran was that the instructors were always helpful: they stopped during the lessons and answered an avalanche of questions from students. There were a lot of practical examples, which helped a lot when I was interviewing. I found a job three months after training. I made my portfolio after being inspired by the examples of my classmates!"
Before the course: Tender Preparation Specialist
BROKE INTO IT AFTER MATERNITY LEAVE
"Before the course, I worked at an airport and at some point I thought about changing my career. I decided to learn manual and automated testing. I liked the course — it was easy for me at first since I already have an IT education. I liked that there was always help from the teachers: they helped me find my mistakes and checked my homework. I looked for a job in my small town after studying; I went for an internship at one of the companies, and after the internship, I started working for them. Now I use my new knowledge every day in my work."
Before the course: Airport Employee
After: Java Developer and QA Engineer
I USE THE SKILLS I LEARNED AT WORK EVERYDAY
"I found out about IT when I was thinking about what to do on my maternity leave, but at the time I didn't have enough time to study. Now the kids are a little older, and I want to spend my free time with them, not waste it on commuting in order to have a stable income. This is why I returned to the idea of an IT career, but I still didn't know where to start. I subscribed to a blogger who recommended the Tel-Ran IT school, so I decided to give it a try. Just two months after graduation, I found a job with an IT company! I sent several resumes through LinkedIn, had one interview, and got the job. Now my official salary is twice as high as it was before..."

FROM MATERNITY LEAVE TO A DREAM JOB IN 9 MONTHS
"I worked in construction for over 10 years, but the last few years it was no fun. My shifts could last up to 12 hours. I hated it all.
My friend works as a developer in a European firm, and I wanted what he had: to work remotely, travel, earn good money and not worry that your profession will essentially become obsolete in the future due to automation. A friend recommended Tel-Ran, so I took a free career consultation and all my doubts dissipated. After 1.5 years I became a QA tester, with a good salary and in-demand specialty. The school gave me all the necessary knowledge, modern practices and support to start my career. Before the real interviews the Tel-Ran HR-recruiters helped me write a resume, prepare a portfolio, held mock interviews, and even offered me several internship options. I found a job way faster than I expected!"
