Why I Chose Hack Reactor
So now, that we have the what out of the way, I’ll dive into the why.
Hack Reactor is the Best
At Hack Reactor, You Don’t Learn Just Learn a Single Language
Hack Reactor is Background-Agnostic (Mostly)
What does that mean? Well, prior to starting this journey, I was a writer who worked in student financial aid(not as a writer, as an advisor). Did Hack Reactor ask me about my background? Absolutely. But I got into Hack Reactor because I passed the technical interview. My resume did not affect my outcome. Now, obviously a tech background would likely make it easier to pass the technical interview because of experience, but the biggest factor is what you are able to do, now what you have done in the past. For me, it was a challenge (a fun one) to begin learning a new skill set while working. So, if you’re from an unrelated field, with no experience, you can do this. It might be harder, but then again, what about this entire setup ever sounded easy? ___ If you’re interested in Hack Reactor, I’d do some research, start coding, and don’t be afraid to apply once you’ve followed the steps they post on their website to prepare. The interview itself was a fantastic experience. And if you don’t get in on the first try, don’t worry: a rejection here is only an opportunity to improve.
