Students work at a range of companies, from small startups to large corporations. Our biggest hiring partners are USAA, Accenture and HEB, but we have plenty of grads go to smaller companies out of Geekdom and around downtown.
Most graduates become entry-level professional programmers with titles like Web Developer, Front End Developer or Software Engineer. Others get tech roles such as Quality Assurance, Documentation Engineer or Support Engineer. Some graduates use their newfound knowledge to take tech-related roles like Sales Engineer or Project Manager.
Many applicants have told us they want to start their own business. If a student decides to start or operate their own business and/or do consulting, they are no longer eligible for the tuition refund guarantee.
At your disposal, you’ll have career coaches, and essentially, your own recruitment team, all working to get you to a job you love. We do two things:
1) We “teach you how to fish.” We work with you on how to manage your career at a high level and also drill down on the mechanics of how to market yourself to employers. This includes things like creating resumes, building online profiles, managing social media, and nailing your interviews. You can use this information for the rest of your career.
2) We “help you find fish now.” We have dedicated staff members whose job is to find currently available job positions, build and maintain our employer partner network, and connect our graduates with potential employers.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 210-802-7289! You’ll talk with our Employer Partnerships Team to discuss how we can best fit your needs. You’ll be first in line to see our graduates, and we’ll prominently display your logo on our website alongside our other partner employers.
The value of Codeup includes gaining the technical knowledge and skillset of a web developer or data scientist, expert instruction, hands-on curriculum with a portfolio to show employers, a close family of your Codeup classmates, a network of technology professionals to connect with, career preparation, continuing job search support even after you graduate, and the peace of mind that if you don’t get hired within 6 months of graduating, you’ll get your tuition back (codeup.com/refund). We also offer a great Return on Investment, one of the best you’ll find.
The average salary for data scientists across experience levels in San Antonio is about $110,000. At an entry-level from our program, we project initial earnings to range between $65-$80K, depending on background experience.
You’ll graduate with our Certificate of Completion, which is like our diploma. However, we believe (and our employer partners agree) that what matters is what people can do — not what grade, diploma, or label they have. What you’re really graduating with is a new skillset and a portfolio to show off to employers!
