If I can swap my lab coat for a career in IT then you too can! My Story


I am Lorraine Nwufo, a graduate of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka with a degree in applied biochemistry which happens to be to me now nothing more than a degree. With not much forthcoming along that path, I decided to deviate into the networking career after realising my flare for IT and particularly Cisco Networking because of its diverse opportunities it offers in Nigeria at the moment and in the future to come.
I got to know about Deft-Rains through Linda Ikeji blog and I’d say going through it at that moment, turned out to be a blessing as it helped to clear my indecision on where to apply for the CISCO programme.2

The advertisement from Deft-Rains was more than impressive; the ease to which I could apply and the efficiency in response is really worth applauding. I registered anticipating the best considering how perfectly they had advertised themselves on the social platform and I got nothing but the best! The lecture room, conducive environment, mode of lectures and the lecturer himself made the period of training a perfect experience.

The programme was easy to comprehend and with the practicals carried out on real-life devices, I can say I learnt from the best. My future is definitely taking the right path now as I’d further my education by enrolling in a networking course for my masters and take the CCNA exams too. I’ve no doubts that soon, and I mean real soon, I’ll be earning well and living my new found dream and would advice everyone to follow their flare and not just settle for their degree because your degree can get you to the door but your passion would take you right in and bring you happiness and fulfilment.

Thus, regardless of your degree or background, if you have a liking for information technology like me with all the opportunities it presents not only now but way into the future, then you should be a part of the soon-to-commence Cisco Networking Intern program which gives you a sure footing in IT networking with its exceptional training methods that allows you access to live routers and switches in an internship-styled approach.
