If you were to put $140,000 and 4 years of your life into building a house and then didn’t live in it, you would probably be committed.
Why is it acceptable, then, for millions of students to pursue expensive degrees with no real idea as to what their job or salary will be when they leave campus?
If you can take the time and money to pursue college without having to worry about a job after, we say go for it. If you definitely need to think about what job your training and education will deliver, you may want to think hard about this decision.
Fortunately, for people who need a sure ROI when it comes to training for a J.O.B., coding bootcamps are an affordable, quick way to take 14 weeks to change your employment prospects for the next 35 years.
Want proof? Glassdoor has released their list of the highest-paying entry-level jobs and it reads like a list of the opportunities our grads have pursued right after bootcamp.
Jobs You Qualify For Right Out Of Bootcamp
There is a reason we call our program a coding bootcamp: We instill students with skills hard & fast, so they can get to work.
These skills center around a 3-stack program that teaches you the coding languages used by the most the most desired companies in tech (think Amazon, Airbnb, Facebook, and more).
While a lot of bootcamps have decided to focus on 1 stack instead of 3, this can limit job opportunities and, worse, require you to go back and learn missing languages. Trust us: Coding Dojo is harder, but it’s worth it — the average salary for our alumni when they leave the program is $76,500.
