I am an IT graduate of STI-Davao last April 2014. I had only less than one year experience in programming at my home country. Global Quest was recommended to me by my classmate in STI, Marc Comia, who also was able to enter New Zealand through the same agency. I found Global Quest’s staff reliable and efficient with the work that they do. Upon submitting all the required documents, it took only less than a month for my visa to be approved. I immediately left for New Zealand last May, 2015. I studied Diploma in Computing Software Development Level 7 at Cornell based on Java and Android platforms and while studying, I worked casual part-time as Web Developer in an IT company in Auckland. I would say, I am blessed to find Global Quest. Now, I hold a permanent job and got my residency last April, 2017 – Keith Loise Gulayan
