Most graduates will work as entry to mid-level Data Scientists. Depending on background experience and interest, they may also focus on specific sections of the data pipeline, like Data Engineering or Machine Learning Engineering.
Yes, we will grade your quizzes, projects, and code and you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion. 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!
Each student will graduate with a working, well-engineered project completed. This might be writing a Twitter clone or doing the same for another well-known website. If you were sponsored by an employer, you may produce a project of value for them. We work with you to identify an appropriate capstone project.
Developer Day is the day a Web Development student graduates, presents their project to classmates, Codeup staff, and our employer partner network, and begins their job hunt! You’ll start working on locating employment while continuing with our post-graduation curriculum. This is a set of challenges that you do while interviewing and applying for positions. We also encourage you to work on side projects with fellow grads. Even after graduation, we have weekly meetings, continue to offer career coaching, and our Placement Team is still working hard with and for you. Our job doesn’t end until you have one!
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 email@example.com 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.
