From Survival Jobs to Cybersecurity Success: The Inspiring Tale of Furkan

CyberTech Academy continues to transform lives by providing quality cybersecurity training. The story of Furkan Yaman, who experienced significant transformation during his journey with us, is one of the finest examples of this success.


At 25 years old, Furkan, a former international relations student, found himself immersed in a routine of survival jobs - housekeeping, dishwashing, and delivery work. This cycle of endless, low-paying jobs was far from fulfilling.

Furkan’s initial brush with technology, assisting in the translation for a friend's robotics project, sparked a curiosity in him that couldn't be ignored. It was this spark that led him to CyberTech Academy.

The Turning Point

Before joining CyberTech Academy, Furkan had no background in IT or cybersecurity. The prospect of breaking into such a specialized field seemed like a distant dream. But at CyberTech Academy, dreams are transformed into attainable goals. Furkan’s narrative changed from doubt to certainty. He knew a career in cybersecurity wasn’t just possible; it was inevitable.

Training Experience at CyberTech Academy

Furkan describes the curriculum at CyberTech Academy as well-designed, offering peace of mind and clarity on the path ahead. His journey was not just about learning; it was about growing with confidence, step-by-step, skill-by-skill. The Academy's structured program meant Furkan could focus on his studies and assignments without the stress of wondering what comes next.

Beyond Education: Job Preparation and Support

CyberTech Academy stands out in its commitment to practical, job-oriented training. Through mock interviews and competency assessments, Furkan gained the essential skills to excel in real-world interviews. This preparation was crucial, with Furkan stating that without it, he wouldn’t have been able to answer 70% of the questions in actual job interviews.

Moreover, the Academy’s support didn’t end at graduation. Their continued check-ins and motivation played a vital role in keeping Furkan focused and driven during his job hunt.

Landing the Dream Job

Just three months post-training, Furkan landed a job in cybersecurity. This achievement, a culmination of nine months of dedication, was a dream come true. It was a testament to the efficacy of the Academy’s training and support system.

Furkan’s Advice to Aspirants

Furkan's advice to individuals stuck in low-paying jobs is clear and emphatic: consider a career in cybersecurity. He highlights the lucrative nature of the field, with entry-level positions offering substantial salaries. Most importantly, he reassures that lack of experience in IT isn't a barrier; it's precisely why CyberTech Academy exists - to equip you with all you need in the cybersecurity realm.
