A good number of our former students have secured promotions or new jobs after completing our One Week Bootcamp. Here are few examples:

Joelle Atallah,
Start-up Consultant at Berytech

Digital Marketing Cohort, March 2018

After over 10 years of experience in management consulting and corporate finance, Joelle was looking to get into the start-up ecosystem in Lebanon. Her creative penchant and her passion for technology made digital marketing the thing to get into. After taking GVA’s bootcamp, Joelle was able to secure an internship at Nicho, a US-based start-up that offers businesses the possibility to control their business’ narrative by curating content from the most relevant sources on the Internet. Joelle then moved on to a new role as the Start-ups’ Consultant at Berytech, a key player in the Lebanese ecosystem for entrepreneurs, where she advises and trains start-ups with matters related to their financing and digital marketing.

Ahmad Berro,

Within days of completing the bootcamp, Ahmad was promoted to the Marketing team at Antwork in addition to landing 2 freelance clients as a remote digital marketer. This has helped Ahmad increase his monthly income by 160% all whilst getting a full upgrade to his career.

Martina Kalyeva,
Marketing team, Jaleesa

Digital Marketing Cohort, March 2018

Martina emigrated from Iraq in 2015 and had difficulty securing a job in Beirut. After 2 years of searching, she landed a job with Jaleesa as data entry analyst.

Hadi Dernaika,
Country Manager,  Growth Velocity Academy

Within days of completing the Bootcamp, he was offered a role as Digital Maketer with Give Legacy. Hadi was able to work with them for a couple of months, enhancing their digital presence before switching to join the Growth Velocity Academy team as country manager for Lebanon!
