Is your 2024 New Year’s resolution to make a career change into tech? You already know that a coding bootcamp can help you get there – 79% of bootcamp grads get jobs in tech and the average alum sees a 56% salary lift. The best way to stay on track is to break down your goal into smaller milestones – get started with our 5-step checklist and enroll at one of the full-time, part-time, in-person, or online programs we’ve compiled that have upcoming start dates in early 2024.

📌 Keep in mind that some bootcamp programs require pre-work that can take 1–5 weeks to complete. Reach out to the admissions teams at the schools you’re interested in to learn more about prerequisites and figure out the best start date for your goals.

How to Make a Career Change into Tech [5-Step Checklist]

✅ Give coding a try!

While many bootcamps accept total beginners, you'll get a leg up by understanding coding basics like HTML, CSS, Java or Python. We recommend learning how to code with a free coding course first. Many bootcamps like Codesmith, Flatiron School, General Assembly, and The Tech Academy offer free coding workshops where you can learn how to code alongside other tech beginners. Free workshops are also a great way to get to know the instructional staff at a bootcamp to determine if it’s the right fit for you.

✅ Figure out which coding bootcamp is the right fit for you.

Do your research, attend info sessions at the coding bootcamps that you’re interested in, and connect with bootcamp alumni to hear about their experience and get insights on different programs. You can use our guide to getting into a bootcamp to map out the steps in 2024. And if you’re not sure where to begin, we’re happy to help you locate some great programs with our quick, 5-question Get Matched tool!

✅ Enroll at a coding bootcamp. 

Look into scholarships, workforce development grants, and financing options like Income Share Agreements and Deferred Tuition that may make your bootcamp tuition more affordable.

✅ During the bootcamp, get active in the larger tech community to build your network and continue growing. 

Document your career change journey with weekly or monthly blog posts. Here are a few simple resolutions to keep leveling up: Give a technical talk. Read technical books. Contribute to open source projects. Find a mentor.

✅ Start your tech job hunt. 

Many coding bootcamps include career support and career coaches. While you’re on the job hunt, stay sharp by continuing to work on projects and learning new skills and languages, such as React JS and AI tools.

Good luck! By New Year’s Eve 2024, you could be working in a truly fulfilling, challenging new role in software, machine learning, data science, AI, UX design – the possibilities are endless.
