Unlike most people who apply to
Road to Hire, Chuck was not a new high school graduate when we received his application. He had recently been medically discharged from the U.S. Navy. He didn’t have a technical background, but he didn’t let that stop him. 

Tech Track,   Class of 2014

“Road to Hire opened my mind to a career in technology. It gave me valuable skills and professional experience.”

Before applying to Road to Hire, Katherine was interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, but the cost of college was a major barrier. Katherine completed the Road to Hire Tech Academy and accepted a job offer from Red Ventures after graduation. One year later, she received a scholarship to Wake Forest University, where she’s now studying full time.

Tech Track,   Class of 2014

“Road to Hire gave me a hands-on learning opportunity and allowed me to focus on what I’m best at: coding and problem solving. I have learned more about computer science from this program than I did in school and best of all, I enjoy it!”

When Bejoy applied to Road to Hire, he was working a part-time job and was a full-time student, but he didn’t feel motivated in the classroom environment. Bejoy is now working full-time as a Junior Engineer at Red Ventures.
