ann eze

Tech Process Associate at Infosys

“I received and accepted a job offer from Infosys. This could not have happened without NEW taking the time from your busy schedule to follow up on my specific situation. The bootcamp and apprenticeship have changed my life for the better. So rather than just say thank you to you, I will also demonstrate my appreciation by working hard to excel in the apprenticeship program, as well as utilize the opportunity to the best of my ability. Thank you for your comittment, assistance, and support. My gratitude for your contribution to my future success is immeasurable.”

William Gex

Tech Process Associate at Infosys

“The most rewarding thing so far is the one I least expected. The focus that NEW puts on not only technical knowledge but emotional intelligence. The skills I’ve learned on how to properly deal with procrastination and increase my overall productivity and time management will follow me for the rest of my life professional and personal.”
