      This bootcamp was by far the best class I have ever taken. In class we learned about real life skills and tools that I will be able to speak to in an interview, and use at a future job; we collaborated with classmates that came from all different backgrounds; we worked on presentation skills; we learned how to use so many different platforms and were given so many resources; and finally, through the entirety of the course we were supported and encouraged to grow by our instructor, Alecia, and all of the TA's. Not to mention the access to a Career Materials Advisor and a Career Coach is sublime in my opinion. Could not recommend this class enough for someone considering going into Digital Marketing.

      Job Assistance:
      I've worked in a research laboratory for several years and faced a lot of frustration in terms of work and advancement opportunities. After a particularly harrowing experience at work around advancement opportunities, I started looking for new jobs, but there weren't a lot of opportunities for laboratory specialists in my area. I talked to my partner, a software developer with 7+ years of experience, and they told me that I should consider taking a coding bootcamp. They said that the IT field is a great one for people to transition over to from non-IT-related fields and that a lot of the skills I used in my research position could be directly applicable. They told told me about several local bootcamp programs to go check out. I compared A LOT of details across the different programs. How did graduates review the programs? What were the costs? Was there financial aid available? What sort of topics did the bootcamp covered? Were there night classes so that I could continue working my job during the day? Eventually I landed on the Data Analytics and Visualization Bootcamp at Michigan State University. I knew from my job that a lot of the curriculum topics were ones I'd actively seen data analysts in research utilize frequently, so I felt the topics would be valuable. I wished that there were more scholarships available like some of the other options I'd seen, but there was an interest-free, short term payment plan available through Climb Loan.

      I started the program back in December and officially crossed the halfway point recently. I was initially pretty intimidated by the program after seeing some of the sample schedules for people working full-time jobs. The Student Success Manager told everyone in absolute seriousness, "Some of you may have friends and family... tell them it's only 6 months."

      The first few modules weren't too bad since they were basic Excel and they were mostly trying to get everyone on the same page. Things picked up QUITE quickly after that. I went into this bootcamp with some coding experience (we use R in my job to analyze research data) and I think that's helped me to keep up with the fast pace a lot, but course-related stuff takes up a lot of my time right now, so I don't make too many plans with friends and family these days.

      The skills that are taught are awesome though. Everything I've learned, from JS to SQL to Jupyter Notebook, I've been able to readily apply to my day to day work. The modules mostly offer great instruction and in layman's terms instead of highly technical jargon, which helps A LOT. Every week my partner (again, 7+ years in software development) asks what we're working on and time and again they've said, "I'm glad they're actually teaching you practical stuff and not a lot of the useless, bloated stuff I learned in undergrad that I never touched again."

      The program also offers a TON of resources, both for the classwork and for career help. All of the Zoom classes are recorded so that you can look back at them later. They do a great job of having a variety of examples to work on in class and they make sure to upload the solutions. The instructors and TAs are very responsive and knowledgeable. My peers are awesome, engaged, and supportive. There are lots of opportunities for office hours and they'll even assign you a personal tutor if you need one. I'm only halfway through, but it's been a really positive experience overall.

      In terms of advice for prospective students to help be as successful as possible, stick to the advised schedule as much as you can. The homework for a given module usually isn't due until a week after the related classes, but I would STRONGLY recommend doing them the weekend after the related classes. As someone who has been all over the places in terms of getting stuff done 2 weeks ahead versus the day it's due, you're really going to want that buffer in case you run into issues so you can ask the class or instructors. I get it that, sometimes, life gets in the way and you gotta do what you gotta do, but staying on schedule as much as possible is going to relieve a lot of stress. Also, commiserating with your classmates, either in class or on Slack, will do a lot to build camaraderie and support. There might be times where you feel like you're the only one struggling to get it, but I promise there are AT LEAST 5 other people struggling along too.

      It's a very challenging and fast paced program.  But if you stick with it to the end, it's very rewarding to see the new skills learned and how much was accomplished.  I had a job offer with a 26% pay increase before the last day of class.

      Max was an amazing instructor and fully dedicated himself to making sure his students understood what was being taught. I couldn't imagine going through this course with any other instructor.
      For anyone looking to enroll, I would suggest running through a JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and React course on Codecademy before class starts. You want this to come as second nature as possible. Keyboard shortcuts are also a good to know.
