After reading the poster, I was so fascinated that I dug deeper about Mitrais. Their 'work-life balance' tagline really got me hooked. I thought it was too good to be true and very doubtful of it until I checked some reviews on Glassdoor, JobStreet, and ex Mitrais employee blogs; all of them give overall good reviews.

To achieve that goal, I applied for a 2-month intensive English scholarship program sponsored by the Nusa Tenggara Barat government." Indra recalled.
He continued, "I knew I needed to sharpen my technical skills too, so upon completing the English course, I eagerly joined a 3-months Bootcamp with Fazztrack to get ready as a full-stack software engineer."
2. Learn from others and keep moving forward
"Learning from others will accelerate our learning process. It enables us to experience many ways to crack a problem. Another brilliant way to learn from others is by joining a Bootcamp like what Mitrais offers. Assisted by world-class trainers, the learning here is absolutely rewarding. Don't worry if you make mistakes, as it means you are making progress. Keep your eyes nailed on your dream and keep moving in the direction that leads to it." convinced Indra.
