"Before Transmosis, I was working at Jamba Juice trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I had heard about the IT program and couldn't help but inquire. I couldn't have been happier I did. Thanks to the hands-on experience, and mentorship. I am now employed full-time"

“I wanted to share that I got a job! It wasn't easy, life was crazy, and I had a ton of obstacles. But I passed. After I finished the program, I had a couple of interviews and had two offers at two different companies, and I accepted the one that best suited my needs.
