Decode Your Power The story of Marta

Katarzyna Marchocka by

“There came a moment when I worked over 40 days in a row for 15 hours a day … and then I said “enough”, I don’t want to live like that anymore. I want to have a normal job during normal hours.”

I worked in gastronomy

I worked in a family business, in fact, in all positions from the cook by the waiter to the manager.

The hardest part was that I worked several hours a day, seven days a week and I didn’t have a chance to take a day off.

I chose the first Java course

My fiancé finished Coders Lab 2 years before me. He encouraged me to think about it. I said “let’s try”. I chose the first Java course at Coders Lab.

There was a lot of work, especially in the first week. I remember the moments when I cried, when I claimed I was too stupid and I won’t be able to finish this. But somehow I managed.

One of the most positive memories from the course is the support that you received from the group, from other participants. Even if we have some moments of breakdown and we know that we are still doing it not as good as we should, there is always someone from the group that will help you.

After the course, I felt great satisfaction that I succeeded, that I didn’t give up, and that I was the first girl who finished the Java course.

I found a job 1.5 month after the course

I am currently working as a programmer in the fourth largest transport company in the world. I found a job 1.5 month after the course.

I know a lot of people who are afraid to sign up for such a course.”I? IT? I certainly can’t do it! ” In my opinion everyone can learn to code – it’s just a matter of hard work and self-confidence.

My life has changed for the better

Now my life is much more interesting, it has changed for the better. My new job helps me to develop, I can set my own goals and implement them. My life is not boring anymore and I am a happier women.

I think that going to a course was definitely the best decision in my life.
