A success story.
Hello dear treehouse community.
My name is Kristiyan and I am a treehouse student for quite a while. Almoust everything I know I learned here. I wasn't really looking for a job as I planned to do that after my first year at university but my plans changed and I had to skip one year. So i desided that I will find a job that will give me practical knowladge. So I made myself a CV and a Portfolio and I sent it to three places I liked. I was offered a position from all of them.
So I write now after 2 months in a position of PHP and node.js developer at one of the top 20 hosting companies in the world.
The point I am going for is that this website gave me knowladge that was sufficient enough to get me a great job that I am happy with without almoust any previous experience.
I really would like to hear such stories from other treehouse students as I am sure there are more.

That's very encouraging, Kristian. Congratulations! Could you share with us more about more details about your learning experience here? LIke what are the most valuable skills that got you the job, and besides taking the course, what other things will be helpful to adapt working in the real world.
Hi Kristian! Congratz!
I started treehouse like a two months ago. Two weeks after I started with coding, I'd sent my CV to a start-up and now I'm the Intern!
Now I'm at this start-up for a month and it's going great. Learning a lot and I am even helping my mentor with his side projects so that I can built a portfolio.
I am loving it!
It's great to see many people getting jobs because of Treehouse. Thanks Team Treehouse!
