TechHire Innovative Business Technology Bootcamp

Information for Students

Merline

Merline was living in the Tampa Bay area when she attended a tech bootcamp like TechHire. After learning a valuable skill she went on to be a back-end web developer for Florida Cruise Ports.

"At first I did not know if I would be able to learn a tech skill and get a job. I applied anyway and I am so happy I did. I did not have a career path, but thanks to a course like this I am now financially independent. Even if you are nervous, go apply. You will not regret it!" - Merline
