Location : State College, PA
Job Title : Software Engineer at Comcast
I first went through their extremely organized Bootcamp process. After that, I was able to work on their Learning Management System project alongside experienced developers and project managers. I strongly believe that the opportunity to work as part of a small team and directly contribute to the project (backend APIs and front-end components) gave me a lot of things to talk about during my interviews.
Their tried and tested career guide and resources taught me a lot of important things and I was never able to find such organized guides on the internet.
Lastly, the most important thing for me was the guidance from the mentors. I had confidence issues and they really helped me improve that from both a behavioral and technical perspective. They were also very responsive, had well-organized one-on-one meetings and mock interview sessions. Since the mentors have experience working with companies of different sizes, it was also really useful to get feedback regarding how one should prepare for start-ups vs larger companies.
All in all, they know what they are doing, and having a closely connected team to whom I can reach out at any time was really important for me. I just needed to put in the effort and follow the steps given.
