When I joined the Rise Up Bootcamp, I was tired of completing job applications and being interviewed without results. I was doubtful at first, being an experienced job seeker, that the Bootcamp would strengthen me as a candidate. I soon had structure and new enthusiasm thanks to the Rise Up volunteers, who encouraged me both in and out of sessions. Then, during the final week of Bootcamp, I received two job offers. I can affirm that the Bootcamp was a fantastic investment of time.
