When Doug W.’s roommate turned him onto Coursera, Doug stayed up late into the night to learn more about databases. At work, he immediately applied what he learned through his courses. He quickly became a top performer, and expanded his learning on Coursera with software development courses. After successfully completing a combination of data science courses and software development courses, he was recruited by Amazon to start a full-time job as a software engineer.

Recommendations from a Software Engineer

Here are the courses Doug took that helped him towards his career goals.

“Coursera pushed me to think deeply and critically about the tools, systems, and spent time. This helped me adopt a paradigm better suited for my field. The Coursera model of homework and exams with deadlines helped keep me on track. I’m proud to list my certificates on my resume and LinkedIn profile.” -Doug W.
