When the first lockdown began, Diego Alexis Romero García decided it was time for a career change. He began to teach himself to code, watch online tutorials and read books on programming languages – and then he found our 12-week Skills for Hire Program. It was a perfect fit.
Born and raised in Mexico, Diego immigrated to Canada in 2017 and soon found himself pivoting away from a 14-year career. When he first began Skills for Hire, he had a keen interest in back-end web development, and now just six weeks later he is enjoying learning more about front-end, design, and user experience. Once he completes the program, Diego hopes to find work as a web developer and get hands-on experience in Nova Scotia’s tech industry.
If you’ve got an interest in the tech industry, are eager to learn, and want a practical approach – Diego says this program is for you!
The Skills For Hire program is a digital skills and career-building training program designed to help fill the need for entry-level tech talent in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. Applications for our next cohort in UX open June 7th.Explore Skills For Hire
