Jabir Uredi Saidi: From psychology student to developer!

As part of our series of articles on our graduates, we asked Jabir, graduate of the 1st cohort and now developer at CGI, to give us a brief portrait of his career so far. Here is the story of another young man who has found a passion for CodeBoxx and who has a wide open future ahead of him!

Jabir Uredi Saidi, July 10, 2019

Since I was young, I have always loved technology. In fact, I always liked using it, but I never thought of doing something with it. I received my DEC in psychology at the Cégep de Sherbrooke and I was accepted at the BAC in psychology at Laval University. It did not take long before I realized it was not for me.

So I took a year off, followed by another year wondering what I really wanted to do with my life. I knew I was interested in technologies (on the user side), but I did not see any opportunities to make a career out of them. On top of that, I was not quite sure that I wanted to take the path of the “long studies” needed to reorient myself.

When I heard about CodeBoxx, I immediately clicked! An intensive 16-week program that guaranteed me a job in the technology world. So I took steps myself to learn to code a little bit to validate my interest and my capacity. I immediately fell in love with it!

Being a “doer” type of person, right from the beginning of the training, I felt that I had put my finger on something. That I had probably found what I was going to do with my life and that I was going to enjoy it. This was indeed the case and I started my career in technology at CGI since January 2019.

Thanks CodeBoxx!
