Byte Back
February 27, 2010

Volunteering helped me get a job. I'm an entrepreneur working with friends to get a software startup off the ground. I needed a stream of income to cover expenses, so I was able to quickly find a job with a vocational school teaching adults Microsoft Office. I got hired after just a 15-minute interview, because I had already been volunteering with Byte Back for several months teaching adults the same skills. My teaching experience at Byte Back made the difference in the interview. Getting a job wasn't even the best part of teaching there. I thoroughly enjoyed working with my students at Byte Back because they were motivated and eager to learn. Even months after my students graduated, I still get emails from my students telling me how they're putting the skills they learned in class to good use at work. I highly recommend teaching at Byte Back to anyone who likes to teach.
