Career Opportunities That We Offer

We have two different types of career opportunities that we aim to prepare our students for, Train-to-Hire and Traditional. These opportunities are provided to students through our partnership with various technology company partners, and in your initial career counseling session we will discuss which option fits your needs and goals best.

Train-to-Hire

Our train-to-hire partners are IT staffing firms whose clients have a need for tech talent, often with multiple positions open for the same role – typically larger corporations and Fortune 500 companies.

More About Train To Hire

Traditional

Our traditional employment partners are employers or companies of multiple sizes that require technical talent. These companies may be expanding operations, backfilling empty tech roles, or requiring additional entry-level positions.

Frequently Asked Questions

 
 

When will I get access to Career Services

You'll have access to resources as soon as you enroll, starting with our proprietary self-paced course, Prepare Yourself for the Job Market. 1:1 support will be available to you once you have completed 75% of your bootcamp program and for up to 6 months post-graduation. We're even here to provide support once you’ve moved on to your job opportunity - alumni are eligible for up to three 30-minute sessions with one of our Career Advisors.

Are Career Services included with the cost of the bootcamp?

Yes! All our bootcamps include access to Prepare Yourself for the Job Market, our self-paced Career Services course, as well as profile- and resume-building support, interview practice, and employer partner opportunities, where relevant.

Is a job guaranteed after completion of the bootcamp?

A job cannot be specifically guaranteed, since hiring is a personal transaction, we have no control over whether a student/graduate chooses to accept a job offer once it's received. However, we do take responsibility to empower you with the knowledge, tools, and support necessary to get a job in the industry. We do offer a money-back guarantee* if you are unable to secure a qualifying job offer.

Do you have employer partners (and will you introduce me to them)?

Do you have employer partners (and will you introduce me to them)? Our list of employer partners grows every day. Our goal is to have more available job openings with partner employers than graduates, so we will work to connect you with employers regarding appropriate opportunities as often as possible.

Can I get a job without a degree?

A college degree is a standard benchmark that employers have used to narrow the candidate pool for decades, so it doesn’t hurt to have one. However, in today’s tight labor market, more employers are having to adjust the criteria they use to disqualify people from their hiring process.
