Amidst “The Great Resignation,” 13% of workers say they want to land a new job in tech – we’re covering the latest on what it means to make a career change in October.

There was more talk about what it would take to extend Pell Grants to short-term programs, and how women are faring after the “she-session” of 2020.

Jess was inspired by the career journey of Eleven Fifty Academy bootcamp alum Thomas. Thomas is a single dad of three kids who completed Eleven Fifty’s part-time Cybersecurity bootcamp and then landed his first IT role. He used Indiana’s Workforce Ready Grant to fund his online bootcamp experience, and he has great tips for juggling parenting, working full-time, and studying for a part-time bootcamp.
Liz got to speak with four bootcamp alumni from Codesmith who took different career paths after they graduated. These grads are all Software Engineers, but two went to huge established companies and two went to startups. They share great tips on how they conducted their job searches during COVID-19, and their advice for bootcampers who are thinking about their first jobs now.
