Thank you Team Treehouse!

Hey Team Treehouse

I'm sending you this email to make you aware that the work and content you are producing is helping to change lives.

I am super excited as I have recently got my first role as a Junior Front-End Web Developer, meaning that I have successfully changed careers.

I have done this through self study, including using your material. It was your tracks in Front-End Web Development, your Github tutorials and others that gave me the knowledge to apply it in my personal projects and ultimately win my job position.

Team Treehouse, thank you for your help in enabling me to realise my potential.

How long did you study before you found your job? I've been on Treehouse for a little over a year now and finished most of the Python track and am now almost finished with the front end development track. Any advice for someone itching to get into the job search?

Congrats on making it!
