    Career Never Got Going

    It has been 2 years since I graduated Brainstation's Full TIme Web Development program and I can say definitevely after 2 years that it was a mistake to attend. I was able to get a part time job based on the Career support they provided but ultimately was told by the employer that it was never going to be a full time role. From there, I did a heavy amount of job hunting, but companies don't have a lot of respect for Brainstation graduates it turns out. I was told there was a big difference...

    Hi Hannah, 

    Thanks for sharing your review of BrainStation, we appreciate the feedback.  

    As you mentioned, every year we release a BrainStation Outcomes Report, which is a review of employment outcomes for our full-time graduates. While the 88 percent graduate employment rate for Web Development is based on all industries of employment, we also include the employment rate within the relevant field of study, which is 85% for our full-time Web Development program. In the interest of transparency we also have an Outcomes Report Data & Methodology page which we urge potential new students to read. 

    We’re happy to hear that the career support did help you find part-time work, however we understand that our students priority is to find full-time positions. This is why we’ve created our Career support program, offering students the opportunity to take part in mock interviews, network with industry professionals, and present their portfolio to our corporate hiring partners at Demo Day. 

    Please feel free to reach out to the Toronto Student Experience team at contact@brainstation.io for more information on how we can offer you continued career support.

    Great intro to UX @ Brainstation NYC

    I took the four day accelerated User Experience course at Brainstation NYC, and came away impresed by the knowledge and practical experience I gained in that short period of time. Eduardo was an experienced and engaging instructor, and I appreciated how the curriculum balanced conveying theoretical concepts and helping us develop real skills by introducing us to industry tools and applying them to a capstone project.

    The campus itself occupies a gorgeous space in Soho, and the su...

    Data Analysis

    I recently took the 4-day intensive course online for Data Analytics and overall was quite happy with the experience. I found the instructor/s were knowledable about the course content and were able to customize the lesson based on what our group wanted extra learning from.

    The curriculm itself was good, but I think the organization of the information could have been better - we covered basic rules of data presentations toward the end when I really felt like we should have cover...

    Wyncode - MIA - C26

    Wyncode has been one of the best experiences of my life. Whether it be the curriculum, the instructors, the staff, or the job support. Wyncode excels at delivering on it's promise to their students. As a graduate of the University of Miami's  School of Business, I can say that a standard 4-year degree is indeed valuable, however it definitely did not prepare me for the job search / experience post graduation. But at Wyncode, I was able to learn the pratical skills needed to land myself a f...

    As a complete stranger to Product Management, I found this couse to be extremely insightful and engaging. The instructors, Andy and Khalid, are approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to make an entry into Product Managment or refine their knowledge.

    I learned a lot.

    I really enjoyed my Wyncode experience. The teacher is very knowledgeable, approachable and patient. You really get what you put into it like most education programs. I immersed myself in the program and dedicated my life to the bootcamp for those 8 weeks. In doing that I got the most out of the teacher, guest speakers and my peers. I will say that related previous careers like design, psychology, information architecture, software development, etc will help you out a lot more than if you ...

    Full Stack Web Development Program

    Wyncode is the best bootcamp in South Florida!!! I visited other competing bootcamps and I can tell you that Wyncode has the best teaching staff and everyone is super friendly. I did their full stack program and after graduation I found a job through their hiring connections right away. The skills that you gain are incredable and you will always feel challenged, no matter what skill level you start with. Wyncode is absolutely the best and they have the biggest network of South Florida!

    Great experience - instructors and their real word experience make it invaluable

    I wrapped up a 5 week Digital Marketing course at BrainStation at the end of August. I was truly impressed. In 5 weeks (two evenings a week), we touched on every aspect of digital marketing that you would want to know in today's day and age. I took the course as a compliment to a recent career move. I felt like I didn't have the information I needed when sitting in meetings listening to metrics or campaign strategies. BrainStation gave me the tools I needed to understand the basics of digi...
