“Mission Ready was recommended to me by a colleague to do this as a stepping stone… It was a learning and work experience to get my foot into IT. I found out that I’m really good in the technical area. It gave me a hands on approach, more practical, good mentors, and also really interesting project sponsors. Datacom, 2degrees, Spark and many, many others. I would recommend Mission Ready to someone else. From my experience it’s been absolutely 10/10.”
