About this Event

Breaking into a career in software engineering is all about showing you’ve got the skills to make an impact from day one. The new normal? Career-focused bootcamps that are built around advancing or helping you break into high-paying industries faster than ever before. They provide an accessible way to more opportunities, more growth, and higher salaries.


Bootcamp courses come with their own challenges, but plenty of students have come before you, and they’re ready to share valuable insights on excelling in our programs and hitting the ground running upon graduation.


Join us as we talk to a Thinkful graduate and explore the ways he made the most of his bootcamp experience and launched a successful career. We will dive into his Thinkful journey, the successful habits he created to stand out from the crowd, and how he ultimately got hired at his dream job.


About the Speaker:

Peter Correa has now worked as a Software Engineer for two different companies, but developing web applications and frameworks wasn't always on his career trajectory. In his early years, he worked as a Technical Specialist for Apple, which is where the seeds of interest in technology may have been planted. After that experience, he followed the traditional education path, earning a Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences from Florida International University and going on to work as a Senior Manager at Target.

However, after 5 years in that role, he decided that it was time for a career change which led him to Thinkful's Software Engineering program.
Today Peter works as a Software Engineer for PayPal where he is working to unify all existing services to GraphQL, ultimately creating a new shopping experience that will bring value to consumers by making it easier for them to shop for products on the app.
