Having spent several years in various roles at Progressive Insurance, Kerry Hirz always had her eye out for new opportunities. After a friend in Progressive’s IT department suggested Hirz consider joining a programming bootcamp to make a bigger career change, Hirz was intrigued. But after some research, Hirz, who was working as a resolution consultant underwriting support specialist, wasn’t sure she wanted to commit the time or money to a program outside of work and didn’t feel ready to take that on. But just a few months later, she received an email about the Progressive IT Programmer Bootcamp and that her role qualified her for the pilot program. It was an opportunity Hirz “couldn’t pass up,” she says.
