Ohjelman päätyttyä sain työsopimuksen ja nyt olen itseäni nuorempien ohjauksessa opettelemassa palveluiden teknisiä tehtäviä sekä toimin melko itsenäisesti erään pilvikokonaisuuden palvelupäällikkönä. Tiimissä on työkavereina muun muassa kaksi muutakin Microsoft Akatemian alumnia. Koulutusohjelman kautta pääsin uusille vesille työuralla – ja niillä on jännää purjehtia!

Koulutusohjelma oli kaikkiaan erinomainen, sillä työttömyyteni loppui, opin paljon uutta Azuresta ja muista Microsoftin palveluista sekä tutustuin koulutuksen aikana eri taustoista tuleviin ihmisiin ja sain motivaatiota jatkaa itsenäistä kehitystäni IT-alalla.
