    Life changing!

    Pursuit is nothing like other bootcamps, mainly because it’s about making a change where it’s most needed, helping under-represented communities, not to forget that the Fellowship has no upfront tuition!Additionally, the staff is always there to help and support in any step of the way to achieve your success.
    I'll keep it short, I looked many bootcamps when I was planning my career path switch and weighted their pros and cons then decided to go for Pursuit and I'm happy I d...

    From nowhere to success

    Like many immigrants, I came to the US with big dreams and a strong desire to succeed, but no job experience here. It was only when I discovered Pursuit (formerly known as C4Q) that I found a path to fulfill my dreams. Pursuit's curriculum enabled me to focus on developing the key hard and soft skills to succeed as a software engineer, from learning how to solve problems with app development to (SOFT SKILL). I've never before in my life been so excited to study; and Pursuit believed in m...

    My Experience @ Pursuit

    My experience at Pursuit was a delight. I had been looking at multiple coding bootcamps before joining and it seemed like it was the one that fit me the best because of their focus on helping individuals from under-represented communities, and also because it allowed me to learn programming without charging me anything until I actually landed a job. While going through the program I found an awesome space that became my home for about 10 months of going almost everyday and with other fol...

    Overview from a Grad

    4x full stack cohort member. There were definitely areas for improvement. With that being said Pursuit is very close to being leaders in alignment on their mission. They have been pivotal in helping many transition to careers in Tech with a very well strategized fellowship that enables people from all ranges of technical backgrounds to become software engineers. Overall the coursework is super solid and great prep for transition. The majority of the staff is able to connect to the target...

    Changed My Life

    I'm a 6.4 Pursuit FullStack Web alum. I'm now an Associate Software Engineer at Moody's Analytics. The Pursuit application process required no knowledge of coding, but focused on my problem solving skills and whether I could learn to think like a coder. The staff is always available to help and does everything they can to help you succeed. It is still a self-driven process, though. You will get out what you put in and they will always meet you where you are. The Pursuit community of alum...

    Pursuit Can Change Lives!

    Before coming to Pursuit I had no coding experience and wasn't on a career path to be in Tech. I didn't get into Pursuit on my first try but this was something I wanted to do so I was persistent. Being a student of the program was one of the hardest challenges in my life; the nights and weekends cohort was no joke for me because I worked a job through half of my time & dealt with personal issues. In addition to working the course work required a lot: critical thinking, grit, being re...

    Not for everyone

    I started as 5.1 FSW Fellow in October 2018. Previous to Pursuit, I had very little experience with coding. I had to learn Javascript from scratch and often it felt a little overwhelming at the beginning. I would say instructors provided good lessons on key concepts and intricacy of JS well to someone who just started learning. It also helped the fact that instructors were also from bootcamp graduates who shared their own experience and strategy for studying with students. It does require ...

    Commendable mission, terrible program management and execution. Shamefully predatory payment system that preys upon lower-income students.

    Disclaimer: I am writing this as a former applicant that made it to the final round of inteviews but was ultimately not accepted for this program, so this review is about the admissions process I experienced. I also find it highly suspect that this school changed their name from "Access Code" to Pursuit shortly after another reputable school started a more credible program that also has "Access" in its name.

    After a submitting my application online, I was invited for an in-person...

    Career Transformation

    I initially found the iOS fellowship program very challenging especially since I had no coding or software programming background.There are tons of new materials and professional skills to learn in just 10 months, which requires a lot of time, commitment and hard work from the fellows.
    But because of the support from the instructors, program managers, fellows in my cohort and from the Pursuit’s staff, my experience has been great!Pursuit pre...
