Before applying to Road2Hire, Katherine was interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, but college was not affordable. "Road2Hire opened my mind to a career in technology. It gave me valuable skills and professional experience.” Katherine completed the program and accepted a job offer from Red Ventures. One year later, she received a scholarship to Wake Forest University, where she’s now studying full time.
Unlike most people who apply to Road2Hire, Chuck was not a new high school graduate when we received his application. He had recently been medically discharged from the U.S. Navy. He didn’t have a technical background, but he didn’t let that stop him. “Road2Hire gave me a shot, even though I didn’t fit the typical criteria, and a few months later, I had the tools necessary to earn a job offer at Red Ventures!”
Bejoy applied to the Road2Hire tech program about a year ago. At the time, he had a part-time job and was a full time student, but he didn't feel motivated in the classroom environment. “Road2Hire gave me a hands-on learning opportunity and allowed me to focus on what I’m best at: coding and problem solving. I have learned more about computer science from this program than I did in school and best of all, I enjoy it!” Bejoy is now working full time as a Junior Engineer at Red Ventures.
