It was really a boot camp – they crammed us with a lot of stuff, and they also plugged us in with jobs. Every day for a whole weekend we had six interviews a day – leave one, go to the next one, so you had to be on it.  All the P’s and Q’s.  It has really been a journey since I’ve been at VisionIT. I would say, coming from out of high school for my training, it helped me a lot.
