Do you feel like you don’t have the right kind of experience to become a software developer?
Then you need to meet Joe Klause.
Before attending Alchemy, Joe earned an arts degree from the New England School of Music, was a professional trumpet player, and also spent five years running an ice cream sandwich business. He had an exciting, eclectic career but he was also regularly working 12-14 hour days and still not making enough money.
"I realized I needed to do something else from a financial standpoint. I wanted to feel more stable.”
So how did you choose Alchemy, out of all the options?
“I ended up having this conversation with the husband of a musician friend of mine, who is a manager at Nike. He asked what I enjoyed about my work. For me it was all about managing and developing more efficient processes to run the [ice cream sandwich] store."
