I immigrated to US in 2001 and 'd met all these problems and questions familiar to all immigrants.
One of the major questions was how and where to find a desent job. I was thinking about it almost a year looking at different options like to go to college, private schools, to take some program(s) etc. And if you have some degree in your profession from your homeland it 's not the case that you can work with this here in US. One day I'd read an advertisement in newspaper of Portnov Computer School. It became a turning point in my life. I finished the School in 2003.
In spite of the crisis in 'dot com' industry in 2000-s, in spite of my temporary 'swings-attempts' to earn money in financial markets ( which finally turned out to be unsuccesfull) I got a very good profession and skills.
Several years i work already in software industry as a Software QA engineer and i like it. Looking back at my past i'm sure (more and more with time) it was a right choice.
Thank you Mikhail and thank you School!
