We often hear the question, “What’s the best bootcamp to get a job?” Of course, some students will always attend a bootcamp for fun or to learn something new, but according to Course Report research, ~91% of students attend a bootcamp in order to get a job. Coding Bootcamps won’t “give” you a job, but a legitimate bootcamp should be career-focused and outcomes-oriented. This means that the curriculum should be current and driven by the needs of employers. And Career Services teams should be plugged into what employers are looking for and how to help you pass a technical interview. Most bootcamps offer some form of career services, which could be a dedicated mentor to guide you through the job application process or a separate curriculum that includes sharpening your LinkedIn or tracking your job search. In this article, we’ve sourced coding bootcamps that are known for their job placement in a number of ways – some offer job guarantees, some offer direct job placement with their employer network, while others include an internship, and still others take the time and effort to release transparent outcomes reports. 

Career Services vs Job Guarantee vs Job Placement

An immersive bootcamp experience should include career services, but not all coding bootcamps offer a job guarantee or direct job placement. 

  • Career services at a bootcamp may cover mock interviews, technical interview preparation, personalized career coaching, and job materials preparation to help prepare and support students as they graduate from a bootcamp and look for a tech job.  
  • Coding bootcamps that offer a job guarantee show that the school is even more confident in their program — they believe their career services and coaching will guarantee a student lands a job after graduation. These job guarantees often come with stipulations that a student must successfully graduate from the program and apply for so many roles in a set period of time.
  • When a coding bootcamp offers job placement to its students, this means that successful graduates of the program will be moved into junior tech positions at an employer partner. These positions may be full-time or contract roles or even a paid apprenticeship.  

4 Bootcamps that Offer Direct Job Placement with Employers

Certain bootcamps have direct connections with employers, which means that these programs align bootcamp students with tech roles. Most of these placements require that the bootcamp student successfully complete the bootcamp.

  1. Akimbo - This Parisian bootcamp offers tech sales students job placement at their 250+ network of startups. 
  2. Fuel Sales Academy - This tech sales bootcamp based in Kansas City offers an “earn while you learn” program, which pays students to complete the course while Fuel Sales Academy finds job placement for the student. 
  3. iO Sphere - Based in London, this data science and data analysis bootcamp offers students job placement through its employer network of big brands and startups. 
  4. Pivot Technology School - Based in Nashville, this program offers its software development, cybersecurity, and data analytics students job placement with corporations and small to midsize companies in the region.

3 Online Coding Bootcamps with Job Placement

  1. Code The Dream - Software Development students are eligible for a full-time paid apprenticeship through CTD Labs, where students will work with non-profit organizations and small companies.  
  2. _nology - After finishing this coding bootcamp, students are granted an 18-month placement as a Junior Software Developer at a client company.
  3. Obsidi Academy - This Canadian coding bootcamp is in partnership with TD Bank, and focused on helping its Black-identified students gain job placement. 

4 Bootcamps That Include an Internship

Coding bootcamps that actually include an internship are relatively rare. However, these bootcamps have unique partnerships with companies or dev shops that help students gain real-world experience.

  1. Jigsaw Labs
  2. TripleTen
  3. Ada Developers Academy
  4. Coding Temple

8 Bootcamps with Job Guarantees

A job guarantee typically means that the bootcamp commits to helping you secure a job in the tech industry within a specific time frame after completing the program. The specific terms and conditions of these guarantees can vary, so it's essential to research each bootcamp's policies thoroughly. Keep in mind that job guarantees often come with certain requirements and conditions, such as maintaining a certain level of participation and engagement throughout the program. We keep track of all bootcamps that offer job guarantees, but here are a few of our favorites:

  1. Springboard
  2. Coding Bootcamp Praha
  3. CoderSchool
  4. CodeCool
  5. RevoU
  6. 4Geeks Academy
  7. Coder Foundry
  8. Hyrise Academy 

“Hire-Train-Deploy” with Bootcamps

When a company is looking to onboard many new tech hires, they may coordinate with a coding bootcamp to sponsor a cohort so they can directly source tech talent. Students in a sponsored cohort will complete the immersive bootcamp (usually a full-time experience!), and then interview for an entry-level position at the company. While a sponsored cohort does not guarantee a job at the sponsor company, any students who are not hired by the sponsor company still receive career services through the coding bootcamp.

Examples of past sponsored cohorts include:

10 Bootcamps that Share Transparent Outcomes Reports

To me, the best indicator that a coding bootcamp is reliably placing their students in jobs is that the school releases updated, transparent outcomes reports. There are 4 main frameworks for reporting transparent outcomes.

4 Bootcamp Outcomes Frameworks

  1. CIRR (Council on Integrity in Results Reporting) – this is the most widely used bootcamp outcomes reporting framework. CIRR is a non-profit and you can read the full CIRR framework here.
  2. WTEA (Workforce Talent Educators Association). So far, Nucamp and Fullstack Academy are the two bootcamps that have signed on as Founding Members. You can read the full WTEA framework here, but we haven’t yet seen a completed outcomes report released by a school. 
  3. EQOS was acquired by JFF and doesn’t seem to be operating as of October 2023
  4. Finally, look for state regulatory agency reports that include lots of great outcomes data. For example, Sabio reports their outcomes directly to the BPPE in California

In our Best Coding Bootcamps lists, we always give schools a special award if they share recent employment outcomes. Some schools, like Codesmith, choose to have their reports examined or audited by an independent accounting firm. Here are the most recent outcomes reports released by coding bootcamps (as of October 2023).
