Tech Apprentice Success Stories

Padmini round


Padmini received a degree in technology in her native country India, but as a new mother she didn’t have a chance to practice her skills, so finding a technology job in the US proved challenging. Through LaunchCode’s CoderGirl meetup, she sharpened her skills, and landed an apprenticeship at MasterCard where she is now a full time software developer.
