Coaching

LEARN CODING BASIC

Learn the basics of coding by writing testing tools and scripts, make things that companies want and can use. No theoretical learning, only real world skills that will enable you to land a job

Learn how to market yourself and stand out from the crowd, learn the secrets of interviewing and speaking in front of a large group. Complete assignments that will give you real world experience and get your foot in the door at a local company

All of this training, learning, and coaching is nice, but the proof is in landing your first entry level QA job and actually start getting paid to learn!

"I can confidently say my life would not be the same if I did not have Josh as my coach. His amazing story inspired me to attempt my own career change. It has been a difficult journey, but definitely worth it. Josh always kept my expectations real, and was there for all the highs and lows. It has definitely been a roller coaster. No matter the moment, triumph or disappointment and defeat, Josh was always there offering solid grounded advice, helping me keep my head cool, eyes on the prize, and inspiring me to keep on pushing. With every advice, Josh had my best interests at heart. I feel so lucky to have met Josh. He is more than a coach. I truly consider him a friend."

"I can't thank Josh enough for everything I learned from him while working towards a new job (just started 5 weeks ago!!). He was able to quickly take stock of my current skills and help me develop a plan to change careers. He helped me in three main areas:

Technical Skills: While I already had some technical skill, he helped focus it and was there to answer questions about where I should concentrate my learning efforts. He was able to provide many valuable resources. Because I was prepared, I haven't felt out of place. I didn't trick a company into hiring me, I feel I was very well prepared.

Motivation: Cheerleading doesn't normally help me get anything done. Josh was able to motivate me when needed, not by being all sunshine and rainbows, but by helping me be realistic about what I could achieve.

Job Hunting and Soft Skills: This is where I really needed some help. Josh was able to coach me on interview skills, job hunt tactics and general advice for dealing with people in the IT field. This helped a lot and was worth the price of admission alone."

"Josh did an excellent job evaluating my strengths and opportunities and then strategizing to improve my marketability.  I was a really hard sell for a tech company position.  I was working at Wal-Mart, I hadn't completed college and I lacked certain interview skills.  Josh helped me focus and direct my attention to the areas I needed to improve.  I would not have stayed the course or made the necessary changes to achieve my goals without Josh's help and insight.  I had to make temporary sacrifices, but it was unequivocally worth the time, money and effort to get my dream job.  Less than 2 months after beginning coaching sessions with Josh, I landed a QA position at Fujifilm and doubled my income.  I now have the best job I've ever had, doing what I love and with opportunities to advance."

"I enrolled in Josh's QA coaching program and I was immediately impressed with the open lines of communication he provided and his concern for my successful completion of the program. Josh laid down a very detailed road map for the tasks to complete to achieve the goal of getting hired as a QA. If you want to get hired, work with Josh."

"I had been trying to learn how to code for several months. I knew CSS3 and HTML5 quite well by this stage but I wanted a job, and fast. (Being unemployed for six months was getting to me.) But where do you start? How do you get noticed? What if they ask me techie questions during the job interview and I am sitting there not knowing what to say? What does a fashionista know about tech? Then I found Josh, he is such an honest and patient person. He has a calm way about him, he clearly demonstrated to me that he could help me. Really help, as in practical steps, personal attention and overcoming any barriers I might have. I am thrilled to have him as my coach!"

"My experience working with Josh so far has been stellar!  I told him my story, and how I was inspired by his story.  Josh has been my coach for the past few weeks. I’m following a proven curriculum of success, one that is tried and tested. Josh is always available and ready to answer any questions I might have.  I’m progressing through Josh’s curriculum and I’m absorbing the information because Josh is able to lend me a hand when I get stuck. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity, things are going great. If you’ve ever had the thought in your mind that you wanted to switch careers or learn coding, then send him an email. You won’t regret it!"
 - John Grovehart, Manhattan New York


"I was shocked and awed by the amount of effort and work Josh put into becoming a developer. It was the perfect timing as he is now offering QA coaching. I was impressed with the amount of effort he puts into each one of his students and the time even while at completely different time zones he was able to put aside to help you become a QA as soon as possible. Josh has made quite a few people QA students and I trust his previous experience and work ethic! If you want to get hired now! Work with Josh, you won't regret it."

"I can't thank Josh enough for coaching me through the steps in locking in my first tech job. Josh's guidance can only be surpassed by his sheer enthusiasm for watching people succeed. Not only did he walk me through what skills I needed, but also continuously challenged me to become a greater coder with his assignments. The skills I learned, in addition to the encouragements I received, gave me the confidence during my interview and landed me my first tech job. "
