I currently have a pretty sweet job. I work in marketing for an awesome startup called Vanhawks, and I love it here. I get to manage my own department, the hours are flexible, the pay is good, the benefits are great, and the people are wonderful – so why am I giving that up to jump into a completely new world that speaks a different language to be back in a classroom for 10 weeks?
Now, I want to know more, and there’s really no better time (I’m still in my early 20s and really don’t have any serious responsibilities or commitments quite yet). Not only do I want to learn to build beautiful websites for you to just scroll through, I want to understand how the backend works, and how information is collected to create a complete user journey.
I know that the 10 weeks spent will be challenging, but nothing good ever comes easy, right? Maybe I won’t be an A+ student, maybe I won’t be making a complete career change, but I know that the skills I eventually develop will only help me to become more adaptable in a constantly transforming digital industry, and allow me to become a more creative marketer.
Hopefully, the experience I’m able to share will help you to stay curious and give you a desire to learn. It may not be in the realm of coding, but as the world of online and digital everything continues to grow, you should too!
