Jess appreciated doing a deep dive into the question, “Are employers hiring bootcamp grads in 2024?” with the TripleTen team. TripleTen recently surveyed over a 1,000 employers and found out that yes, they are definitely hiring bootcamp grads now and which industries are especially interested in new tech talent.

Liz loved hearing the career change journey of Ivan who went to the Cybersecurity Bootcamp at Lighthouse Labs. Ivan had a background in criminal justice and he was able to pivot into a cybersecurity career as a Digital Evidence Technician for the Calgary Police Service.
