JUMP is designed for college graduates with some prior programming experience who wish to enter the tech industry. During the application process, applicants will be screened to gauge their basic level of comprehension of relevant technology. Candidates will then do an in-person or webinar interview. Before being officially allowed into the program, applicants will take an aptitude test to showcase their problem-solving capabilities.

Students are given practical exposure to real-world tech scenarios, to prepare them to hit the ground running on their first day of work. Ultimately, the goal of the JUMP program is to place every student with one of Cognixia's clients – mostly in the financial and technology industries.

      In the age of Big Data, a security breach means dire circumstances for the company that experiences it. Keeping networks, systems, and applications secured is not just a “nice to have”, but an absolute necessity. As the scope of cybersecurity expands to meet emerging technologies and new forms of cybercrime, professionals who understand how to navigate the technological and legal nature of this field will be in tremendous demand. It is thus essential to have professionals with expertise in cybersecurity in every organization to minimize the threat of cyberattacks, cybercrime and data breaches, as well as manage the situation in time of crisis.

      To be successful in any technological field, you must first build a digital foundation and have a digital mindset. This course delivers training that shifts the way you see technology to understand the constant evolution of tech and how to stay ahead of it. You can learn any technologies you want, but without having a digital mindest, you will fall behind the next wave of technological change.

      Cognixia's JUMP program has absolutely fantastic teachers, mentors, and staff. Everyone I met that works there is kind, supportive, responsive, knowledgeable, and extremely professional. My interactions with the staff, along with viewing a sample of their Java coursework, was the reason I chose JUMP over other programs. I really appreciate their director and think that the program set such a good balance of professionalism while still feeling casual, approachable, and fun. 

      The only disclaimer is that you need to be willing to move...but honestly, if you're young and starting your career, why aren't you?? Where is your sense of adventure?? They have really great locations. For other people who are older or transitioning careers, that can be a big setback. I hope that in the future, they might consider offering some other tracks for people who are transitioning careers if the location is an absolute deal-breaker for them. I was doing a transition myself and it wasn't a problem for me at all- in fact, I really wanted to move and it is a great option to find something out of state (hard to do without connections)! However, my personal situation wasn't tied down to any one place.

      My training was online and it worked very well- I did not feel like the training quality was affected. It built on what I learned from my technical degree (solid fundamentals and an MVC framework). I did the Full Stack Java course and we covered Java fundamentals (good review and still some new stuff for me even w/ plenty of Java in school), JavaScript/HTML/web stuff, Spring Boot, some AWS. The pace is challenging, but doable if you are willing to put in effort. It's more challenging for people that don't have programming degrees. You must demonstrate you are putting in effort to succeed, and everyone that finished the program is someone I think would make an excellent employee (hard working and team players). 

      I do hope they keep the online option for training even after the pandemic, because moving twice is definitely a lot to ask (one of my only complaints), and I don't really think it's necessary. However, maybe some people prefer that format for training.

      One of the other perks about the program is the interview preparation. You WILL be prepared for interview questions, and they help you a lot with that! 

      It worked out great for me because I worked hard and spoke up in class, and I was rewarded for it - got a job at Microsoft after training! I only had a two-year technical degree and was coming from a previous music background. I loved working with their teachers and am glad to have met everyone I did through JUMP! Thanks to you all again!

      I joined Cognixia in May of 2020 and began training for Java and Springboot. Coming from a java background, this helped strengthen my programming skills and taught me a solid framework, Spring, which I see and use almost everyday in my current position. After the training I began the JUMPlus stage and I eventually found a great position with an incredible company. This boosted my career in ways that really would not have been possible without the JUMP program.

      Aside from the business side of the program, everyone I interacted with was very kind and helpful. From the start of the program I could tell they wanted to get me hired and would do everything in their power to do so.

      This program isn’t your average coding boot camp. This program is a jump-start into the IT industry, but also a professional and personal development. Suppose you’re looking for a career change in IT, or eager to elevate your technological understanding; do not hesitate to join! The mentor-ship from 1 to 6 weeks is excellent. The best industry practice and soft skills is something you can take to any job if you're not selected.
       
      Advice:
      • Do the work and go beyond.
      • Make use of all the resources.
      • Stay for office hours.
      • Build relationships!! 
       
      The TA’s know their stuff! People coming from none technical backgrounds don't be intimidated, your selection isn’t solely on your ability to execute. Focus on improving and be interactive. Your collaboration is strongly considered.
       
      Things I wish I knew:
      • This is a type of program that requires some sort of stability. If you're making a career change or want an IT job ASAP, I wouldn’t recommend this. The structure takes time to get results, if offered to join the company.

       The quality of the training depends on the instructors responsible for teaching a certain subject.  Most instructors went above and beyond with their responsibility and arranged time to help students outside of training hours.  However, there were some instructors whose teaching styles I was disappointed with, and  sometimes the pacing of the course goes very fast due to the time constraint and the amount of material needed to be covered.  During these times, I found myself working long hours after the training ended to teach myself the material and not fall behind.  There is a mechanism in place to help the instructor improve their teaching style via weekly reviews in which we would rate certain areas of the training and give feedback to the instructor.  I did see some improvement after feedback was given, but felt that the teaching style was still lacking in some areas. 
       
      Materials and teaching styles used ranged from lecturing from slideshows, watching videos or pre-recorded lectures, coding along with the instructor, being given in-class challenges or homework, group and individual projects, etc.  The slideshows were very informative, but it does get monotonous listening to lectures for a long period of time.  What I liked was that some instructors would break up the lecture by showing us an example or having us do a challenge that incorporates what we learned so far from the slides.  This pacing helped in keeping me attentive and not burning out.  Pre-recorded lectures were also not the best method for training since the videos can be outdated and it's harder to follow along and ask questions.  When brought up, the instructor did make an effort to find updated resources, but sometimes class time would be wasted learning from outdated resources and we'd have to learn the updated version on our own time. 
       
      The workload was realistic for the most part, and if they weren't, instructors were open to the students' feedback and would give extensions on time.  Projects not only helped with improving our technical and collaborative skills, but presenting them also helped to become familiar with using technical language.  The program uses Moodle to organize the learning materials and also to distribute weekly assessments.  I do feel like Moodle wasn't used to its fullest potential.  For example, instead of emailing completed assignments, there's a feature in Moodle that allows students to turn in the assignments.  I feel like this way is more organized, and it's also easier for students to look back at the assignments turned in.  The organization of Moodle could also be improved, such giving the sections and folders descriptive names.  For example, instead of "Week 2" or "Day 1," it would be helpful to name them after the subject being covered. 
       
      In addition to technical skills, the JUMP Program assisted with soft skills, resume reviews, and interview practices.  Once a week, or once every two weeks depending on the length of your training, a "Digital Mindset" assignment would be given out to help improve certain areas such as Adaptability, Digital Readiness, Agility, etc. These assignments consisted of watching TEDTalks, reading articles, and answering question via recorded videos. The resources were interesting and it was a nice break from technical assignments.  Talking on camera also helped prep for interviews since they're done virtually. Regarding the resumes, I do disagree with some areas of the resume template we used to model ours after, such as having an objective since it seems outdated nowadays.  Towards the end of the training, an interview roleplay is set up between the student and a talent developer.  The questions asked here are not too technical, but I received valuable feedback from my session nonetheless and it made me feel more comfortable having done these mock-interviews when going into the real one. 
       
      Overall, I personally did learn a lot from this program, including getting better at the skills that I came in with.  The key thing to have in order to succeed in this program is motivation since a lot of self-learning is required.  The environment is very supportive and I've made very meaningful connections with the other students.

      I was initially very nervous about the process. I received a message from a recruiter over linkedIn. A short conversation lead to a few interviews. I almost walked away when the recruiters asked for my private information, including SSN, over e-mail. When I told them I wasn't comfortable with that, their IT team set up a secure portal for me to share the information they needed. 

      After joining the program I again was nervous when I had to sign a loan for the training. The loan would be forgiven if I completed the training. If I happened to get the job the training was for and I represented the program poorly, I would once again be on the hook for the cost of the training. 

      The training itself was 3 weeks of lecture and tests; 8 hours a day, 5days a week. I learned the basics of interacting with a mainframe terminal, writing JCL and COBOL code. Along with the lectures, There were also plenty of opportunities to interact with employees of the company were training to join. This was a mentally exhausting and fun experience. Unfortunately this training had to be remote do to COVID-19.

      I have been offered a position for the company we were training to join and I have accepted. The plan is to start working in about 2 weeks.

      Overall I was nervous about a few steps in the process, but I am very glad I proceeded with caution. Now I'm getting prepared to start my career in the Computer Science field.
