I must be an anomaly then. I did a trilogy/2U bootcamp and started right out of the gate with a $100k/yr job (+ 10% annual bonus, 401k match, etc) at a major media corporation. I leveraged that role and I'm now at a AAA gaming publisher making very good money and 100% WFH. A colleague of mine that started in the 2U cohort following mine is now at Netflix and making $450k/yr. He landed his first role 2/3 through his bootcamp @78k/yr and leveraged that into a role at Nike making over $100k/yr by the time his bootcamp had concluded. Both of us had zero industry experience prior to our respective cohorts.

In my experience, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. You can't expect the bootcamp to work magic and give you a handout. You really need to absorb as much as you can in the bootcamp, learn the fundamentals that the bootcamp provides, NETWORK, build your personal 'brand' on LinkedIn, and get in touch with technical recruiters in your chosen field. They are going to be your lifeblood. Leveraging roles and relationships into opportunities is key - that is where I have had the most success and seen others have the most success. Be hungry, be motivated, and be tenacious.

Best of luck!!

you likely took the webdev one - can you specify the skills you acquired as well?

the newer ones like data analytics and fintech seem to be scraped up from bits and pieces of webdev. the instructor was sometimes giving wrong instruction during lecture which misled people to more questions due to incorrect instruction sometimes.

i have ten years in C#, engineering master degree, SQL and python so if you or your network have a spare opening please let me know
still currently employed but hungry for more

Ironically, my bootcamp was the Data Science & Visualization bootcamp, and I work in analytics. My cohort was under Trilogy, but I believe they merged with 2U 1-2 cohorts later. They started the fintech bootcamp about a year after my cohort concluded. This was about 3.5 years ago now. Makes me wonder if things have changed since then.

They did teach us javascript and d3.js, which I haven't used at all, but other than that, it consisted of Python (including Pandas, a ton of other libraries (web scraping, etc), ML with SciKit-Learn/PyTorch/TensorFlow, and Flask), SQL, MongoDB, Spark, Excel, and Tableau.

Shoot me a PM with your field and what you're looking for. I'll see if we or someone in my network have any good roles available.

Nope. :D Not Kate and I don't work for Riot, although I did apply there once.
