Our cyber security student success stories

Devang Bheda, aged 30

Reason for enrolling:Devang_blog_profile

Devang spent most of his career working within the Finance sector. After working as a Credit Assessor, he felt like he was stuck and had peaked with his current company. He always had a passion for IT and knew he wanted to get into Cyber Security.

Devang was nervous about taking a chance and changing his career as this is extremely uncommon where he is originally from. After speaking with one of our Senior Career Consultants Adam he knew now was the time. Devang was excited to jump into the training and finally make the change in his career.

StudentCareTM

StudentCareTM were immediately impressed with Devang’s training. He made great progress on the first certification. Even when he felt he was not moving quick enough, StudentCareTM were able to reassure him and keep him on track.
After being made redundant from his role, Devang was extremely stressed and nervous and found it hard to keep on track with his study. StudentCareTM ensured that he focused and made accommodations to support him while he found a new role.

Career Services 

Devang was extremely eager to start working with Career Services. He was nervous about this part of the process and his lack of industry experience. Tabatha from Career Services consistently reassured him. He had consultations around his CV, LinkedIn and how to network in the industry. After a lot of encouragement, Devang worked hard to grow his connections and become visible on the platform.

Career Services coached him through interview preparation to ensure he was prepared and felt confident having these conversations. Every time Devang doubted himself, we were able to encourage him and remind him he had excellent experience and after completing the certifications, he had the right practical/technical skills to do the role. We are extremely proud to say, Devang has been offered a role as a SOC Analyst for a large international Security Software and Hardware company where he will be working remotely.

The results

Devang says:

“I have felt greatly supported by career services, especially by Tabatha. The journey hasn’t been smooth to transition my career but Tabatha has been in touch and helped navigate the competitive market to secure my first role in cybersecurity. The whole team has been extremely helpful and instrumental to my success.”

 

Tina Gray, aged 50

Reason for enrolling:Tina_Gray_Student_profiles_blog

Tina enrolled with us in the Certified Ethical Hacker collection. She had been at home for 10 years, caring for her family, and wanted to get back into the workforce. Tina had previously worked in medical administration, but wanted to try something new. She was bored, really, and itching for a new career, and cyber security appealed to her. She also wanted to work remotely so that she could have a healthy balance of a satisfying career and time with her family.

StudentCareTM

Tina was a nervous student to begin with, but weekly calls and accountability check-ins with StudentCareTM really helped her studies take off. StudentCareTM helped fill in any knowledge gaps she stumbled across. By following the training materials carefully, making use of the support we provide, and doing her own research, Tina was able to pace herself and obtain her core certifications. By the time she had achieved the Security+, she was absolutely flying. Her confidence and sheer determination combined with 1-to-1 support from StudentCareTM got her where she wanted to be. Tina was a total pleasure to work with and we are so proud of her success.

Career Services 

Tina wanted to complete her training prior to looking for work, so started working with Career Services 5 weeks ago. Since then, Tina has updated her CV and embraced LinkedIn and other social media platforms to get connected with her peers and future employers within cyber security. Tina secured two interviews and was offered both jobs. During the process, she had to prepare for a complex interview but was also asked to conduct a scenario report as part of her testing. In the end, Tina accepted a Cyber Security Analyst role with Interactive where she can work remotely.

The results

Tina says:

“Being a more ‘mature’ woman, it was daunting to consider re-entering the workforce, but the ladies at Learning People were so helpful with this. It only took a quick phone call with Julia to convince me that I could do this, and over the period of my study, she and Laura in StudentCareTM have supported me every step of the way. To date, I have passed CompTIA 220-1001, 220-1002, Network+ and Security+, Pen Test+ and the Certified Ethical Hacker – FIRST TIME, EVERY TIME! If you’re considering reskilling, this is a GOOD option. I recommend Learning People to help with YOUR journey.”

 

Bradley Steinbach, aged 26Bradley_Steinbach_Student_profiles_blog

Reason for enrolling:

Bradley enrolled with Learning People in February 2021. After working in real estate for 6 years, he was looking for a change. Bradley always had a passion for tech and had been thinking about getting certified for a whileHe did some research and came across Learning People.

After speaking with Conor, one of our Senior Career Consultants, he knew this was the right decision for him and was excited to jump onboard. 

StudentCareTM

Bradley began working with StudentCare™ straight away – he was extremely motivated and a great student to support. StudentCare™ kept Bradley on track and helped him juggle studying with working full-time and his family commitments. Thanks to his own dedication and consistent encouragement from our StudentCare™ team, Bradley was able to complete his certifications within the time frames he set out for himself.

Career Services 

Bradley was new to cyber security, so Career Services got started with him straight away. They consulted with him on his CV and LinkedIn profile, and got him started with networking and growing his digital presence.

He connected with the right people and was able to find a role that combines his real estate experience with his cyber certifications. Bradley now has a role as a Cyber Security Customer Relationship and Business Development Manager. 

 Bradley says:

“Browsing the internet trying to find suitable courses and certifications to transition to cyber security can be very exhausting and overwhelming. I am so happy that I came across Learning People for my training and certifications in cyber security. 

I felt like Conor, the Career Consultant, listened to what I was saying and built a course around what he felt I would succeed at and be interested in. They also were extremely attentive to my needs, and as someone who makes decisions quickly, this was a huge plus! I felt like my StudentCare™ Consultant wasn’t too pushy and always tried to support me.  

I cannot speak highly enough about the course content and web platform that I have been provided. Many online learning platforms for CompTIA certifications can offer great videos and learning resources, but where Learning People excels is in the virtual labs. These labs give so much practical, hands-on exposure to the learning concepts. A lot of people comment that the Security+ content is too high-level and not practical enough, but with Learning People’s labs I have had the opportunity to hack with Kali Linux, create my own malware, and infect Windows systems in real time! Since I have started my journey, I have now added on additional courses and certifications to keep improving. As someone who has used a number of other free online resources, the value is demonstrated in the practice labs and exams from Learning People.  

There is a huge added value of having constant support from the Career Services team. Free online platforms don’t offer the 1-on-1 tailored service that you get with Learning People. I always feel like I am supported with learning and building my career profile within cyber security. Learning People even helped me prepare my LinkedIn profile for maximum exposure which ultimately landed me my first job in the industry. This is really seamless customer experience from start to finish and I am certainly an advocate for their highly modern and effective services.” 

 

Ashley Wicks, aged 36Student_profiles_blog_Ashley_W

Reason for enrolling:

Ashley enrolled with the Learning People in August of 2020.

She took advantage of StudentCareTM for support with exam preparation and strategies around study planning and time management.

As per our process, we initially started reviewing Ashley’s CV and LinkedIn profile and provided recommendations for change.

She succeeded in gaining a role as a Cyber Security Analyst at Culture Amp in February 2021.

Ashley says:

“I cannot recommend the Learning People enough! Their course materials and their service have been unreal from the start. From day one I felt supported and guided genuinely by StudentcareTM who went above and beyond to assist me. The support from Career Services was essential to how I got my first job in Cyber Security. Transitioning into Cyber Security wouldn’t have been this smooth if not for them, I was pointed in the right direction, given the right resources, and I was up-skilled in just 6 months and then hired! Thank you Learning People I am immensely grateful!”

Reason for enrolling:

When Liam started talking to Learning People, he was working as a Technician doing Cinema Servicing.

The results 

Tarun says:

“When I first enrolled I felt nervous for a change but also excited to move my life in the right direction. I enjoyed the course and content and have found it very relevant to my current job. Virtual labs were also great. The Student Care support was amazing when I needed it, they were prompt and helpful. Career Services were very to the point which was great for me, they helped a lot with my CV and helped me get focused on where to start and what to do every day while I job hunted, and helped me to get in to my new job.”

Kit AlexanderStudent_profile_Kit_Alexander

Reason for enrolling:

Kit unfortunately lost his job during the pandemic as a Pilot for Virgin Airways, an industry he had been in for 15 years. He was faced with a very difficult decision to either wait out the pandemic or re-skill into a new career.

Kit started working with Career Services when he had completed his first few international certifications. He was still quite nervous about the change to his career even at this stage and was second-guessing if it would work. Career Services helped him with his CV and LinkedIn profile but also taught him how to network, and more importantly, interview coaching when the time arose.

We had a few conversations and then came up with a plan to train for a new direction in my life but also emphasize and build on my strengths. I moved into training for a new job in Cyber Security, and after passing a few certifications I began to have a chat with the team in Career Services.

Julia helped me put my new certifications alongside my other marketable skills into a presentable and honest package for potential employers. Julia and the team helped me refine my CV to make it stand out to employers and had a lot of great advice. With their help, and my skill set, I was able to secure a job, as a Cyber Security Advisor with an excellent company in Christchurch, where I have huge career potential going forward.

I found I had access to the textbooks and references I needed to complete the modules I attempted. I did not need to use any exam retakes which I think is a testament to the courses themselves. The StudentCareTM team was wonderful. Any time I had an issue or a question they were quick to respond and happy to assist. I thank them for their hard work.

I started working with Julia from Career Services after finishing the first couple of certifications. She took time to understand my position and that I did not have a lot of spare time. She gave me advice that was direct and concise and most importantly prioritised. I was able to take that advice and make relevant changes to my resume, slowly make the changes to my LinkedIn and start making the appropriate connections. Julia was extremely helpful.  All credit to her.”
