Katherine Bangert Software Engineer | 2012 Graduate

Alumni Biography

Katherine Bangert

After Ranken, I decided to continue my education at Webster University part-time. I took a contracted position with Foundry Software in Creve Coeur two months after graduation. Towards the end of my contract, I had landed a position working for Karpel Solutions. The CEO was so impressed by my work he wants to start hiring more Ranken graduates in the future.

Over the summer of 2014, I made the bold decision to move to Miami, Florida. I took a full-time position with a well-funded start-up company. I have learned more in the past month than I could have imagined. I have the flexibility to learn new things and become a better developer. Since moving to Miami, I transferred my credits to Keiser University and am working towards my bachelors’ degree in Software Engineering. Opportunities like this only happen once in a lifetime and I am glad I took the risks to be where I am today.

Ranken helped me understand what employers truly value in candidates. The work ethics grade helps shine a light on how well you will perform and act in the real world setting. If it was not for my past instructors, I wouldn’t be where I am today. They really helped me step up and realize what I needed to do to succeed.
