Why did you start the Traineeship?

I started the traineeship because even though I have a master’s degree in computer science, I saw it as a fast track to the start of my IT career and enhance my IT knowledge. Even though having a master’s degree should boost my chances to get a job, it wasn’t easy especially with the COVID-19 situation.

I found the course content very knowledgeable and enjoyable. It helped that all courses came with detailed PowerPoints slide and videos. it really helped me refresh my memory on what I learned in university and also taught me many new things I was never taught.

What's your current role like?

My current role is perfect for the progression of being a Cyber Security Analyst. I’m a Systems Engineer at a data centre. I work on assist with installing and modifying data floor equipment, monitoring networks and servers and managing backups. I enjoy the opportunity to gain experience, and develop my knowledge, across a variety of different technologies and software.
