"I first stumbled upon Integrify at a blog post in Medium. From the start, I really liked the idea of enabling integration through technology. I was sad to notice that the application period had just ended but because I had nothing to lose, I sent the application anyway. A few days later I was doing an interview and a live coding test at the Integrify office. I was jumping from happiness on the day I got accepted to study coding at Integrify - it was such a big turning point in my life.
Every day we also had a lesson given by our awesome teacher and the afternoon was spent coding. We also used a lot of time doing team projects. On one project I started in the design team and then moved to the frontend team. This project gave me a real work-life experience on how to work with different branches in the repository, create pull requests and review other people’s pull requests as well as how to follow one code style. In addition, we had to meet strict deadlines and learn the important skill of how to be a team player.
The 6 months went by really quickly and finally, it was time to graduate. It was really exciting to be selected as one of the top students. One part was over and the next big step was to get ready for job interviews and to land that dream job. A big thank you goes to the Integrify team that supported us and worked so hard to make our dreams come true. Honestly, the month getting ready for jobs interviews, doing them, doing second-round interviews and waiting to hear back was pretty nerve-wracking. It was a lucky Monday that I finally got that magical email that all the hard work had paid off and Tieto CEM offered me a job as a software developer. I don’t have enough words to explain how extremely happy I was and I still can’t believe it because it’s a dream come true."
