I found out about the apprenticeship through an external agency. CompanyNet was the first company recommended to me.
First I had an interview with the external agency to see if I was right for the job. Then they directed me in how to contact CompanyNet.
The collaborative approach of CompanyNet stood out to me. I was very interested in technology and I wanted to be a developer. An apprenticeship seemed like a good way to improve my skills and progress in my career.
There were three interviews in the process. The first interview was over the phone. We talked about my interests and what experience I have, it was a very casual interview. The second and third interviews were presentations about something I am passionate about. These interviews were slightly more formal but still very relaxed. I had to give a presentation to two members of staff. The third interview was in front of two senior members of staff and there were some more formal questions asked.
In the beginning I found the apprenticeship fast paced and difficult. There was a big ability difference at the start, but, through the support of the team around me, I improved significantly in a short period of time.
It was different to what I was expecting. It wasn’t as formal as I first thought it was going to be, but the freedom to learn really helped in my case.
After finishing my apprenticeship and carrying on at CompanyNet. I am now a Microsoft Cloud Engineer.
Yes, I think I improved a lot more than I would have in typical education. It was good to learn and get paid at the same time.
