Hi guys,

I wanted to send a small note to thank you all for helping me with everything concerning this position at Cox. I had been looking for work since May of 2018 with no success. After you guys started helping me and I started working with Upom I was sought out from just my Linked In page, something you guys helped create. As you know I got the offer something like 30 minutes after walking out of the building. I couldn't be more grateful for all of your help. So far I've very much enjoyed working at Cox and I'm putting my best foot forward.

Thank you all so much for helping me get this opportunity!
I am proud to announce that I have started a new job at GSK as a data scientist. It is hard to believe that I was able to find a new position in a time when millions have lost theirs, and I am very grateful for this opportunity. I must thank SharpestMinds, Edouard Harris, Tomas Babej, and the countless others who provided mentorship as I ventured into data science. I'm excited to start the next chapter in my career!

We celebrate your success

Congratulations to mentee Shweta Bagujar on the her new role! 🎉🎉
