Onsite at Linklaters 

After studying Computer Science at the Universidad Minuto De Dios I decided to carry on with further education gaining a Masters in Science of Information Technology at the University of East London. I was approached by QA Consulting and thought it was a fantastic opportunity to get certified in niche technologies that not every company had capability to train you in.

After completing the Graduate Programme I joined a blended team of developers at VOA where I had the opportunity to work with the latest development tools such as MVC3 AND C#, JavaScript, jQuery as well as styling web pages using CSS3.

I am now working as a .NET Consultant at Linklaters as part of another blended team. I have been involved in three different projects all of them based on ASP, .NET, C# and BV.NET. I am also pleased to be supporting junior .NET Consultants in helping them improve their skills.

Working at NETbuilder Ltd 

I look back at my time at QA Consulting with fond memories. The training started immediately and the first two weeks were brilliant.

QA Consulting are really up to speed with current popular and expensive software solutions and provided that knowledge to the trainees whilst giving us the material and freedom required to learn the necessary skill to go into the technology industry.

I was given the opportunity to develop a live trading software platform and trusted to write auto hedging solutions, along with going onsite and training clients on the use of that software. I found this to be a big boost in confidence and gave me a lot of belief in myself.

I particular remember the amount of social events and fun we had – a nice balance of work and play! It really is like being a part of a family.
