    Bad for getting you a job

    SUMMERY

    This is a great course for meeting like-minded students interested in web development and building a strong foundation. If you’re main goal is to get set up with a job (by the bootcamp) after course completion, you will be disappointed.

    Hi Anonymous,
     
    We truly appreciate you taking the time to write a detailed review and provide your honest feedback. We love hearing that you found the instructors and TAs knowledgeable and helpful throughout the course, as we strive to create an environment that promotes dynamic learning with excellent instructors.
     
    You are correct that this program requires a heavy time commitment for outside work each week. We try our best to communicate the level of commitment required and do tell our prospective students to expect to spend a minimum of 15-20 hours per week outside of class in order to excel. In regard to the volume of learning, while we do cover several programming languages in a short period of time, that is done with the goal of exposing students to the material so that they may dive deeper and become confident in the language post class.
     
    We’re sorry that your experience with career services was not what you were expecting. While Rutgers Coding Boot Camp does not guarantee job placement for students, we do work to prepare students through interview coaching, technical interview training, resume building, cultivating your online presence, employer events and more. We engage with hundreds of employers in the region who wish to review portfolios from students like you.  As we uncover new opportunities, we connect our grads to these jobs and provide coaching to support them throughout the application, interview and job offer processes.  
     
    Employer engagement happens both during the program and after graduation. We invite guest speakers from across the industry to interact with our students on topics such as How to be a Successful Developer, UX/UI Design, App Ideation, The Tech Landscape, How to be a Competitive Applicant and Life at a Startup. Guest lectures are designed to be a chance for students to build their networking skills from the comfort of the classroom as they prepare to launch their job search in the real world. 

    Our course-end events are also great opportunities to build a network of contacts in the industry that might be the key to your new job. We recently held a Demo Day event where employers were encouraged to attend and both watch students demo their final projects as well as conduct on-the-spot interviews with top candidates.

    We highly encourage our graduates to focus on relationship-building throughout the course (both within the classroom and beyond) as our experience shows that the more connected you are the more likely you are to get a job. 

    Thank you again for your feedback. We would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about your experience and discuss how you can take advantage of our extensive post program services. You can reach me at (732) 430-2144.

    Immersive Learning Experience

    Learning from Arooj and Justin has been a life-changing experience. Besides picking up Python, SQL, and the many software packages, I really enjoyed completing the projects. Not only when I completed them on my own ahead of time but working with my peers was extremely rewarding. Taking on the large four projects were daunting at first but also meant a lot to me with each different team. Creating the connections with my classmates were important in keeping the class engaging. I had a phen...

    Great experience and detailed guidance

    I have spent a lot of time researching online on how to create my own webApp and found it to be a huge challenge being that there are so many resources online and steps required to complete a full stack webApp. Joining this Bootcamp has allowed me to closely work with the instructor to dive deep into all the necessary steps to creating a webApp. I have also had the chance to work with tutors to help me get through some tough homework assignments. I am more than halfway done with the boot...

    An absolute mind-melter

    This was one of the most intense courses I have ever taken. There was never a single time where I felt like there wasn't support when times got rough. Whether it was the instructor Paul, the TA Jonathan, my classmates, or tutors. There was always someone to help guide me through. I would recommend this course to those who want a challenge, but also have a bit of a tech background. It goes deep quickly, and it takes a LOT of personal effort to keep up. Loved every second of it

    Fantastic and Professional Coding Bootcamp

    When I originally signed up for the Bootcamp, I was extremely nervous.  I had very little coding knowledge and was driven to make a career change.

    Throughout the Bootcamp, it was evident that a lot of time and effort went into preparing each class and student assignment.  

    Our instructor would give a lesson on a new topic, and we would go into breakout rooms with other students to work on an assignment we just learned.  The instructor then reviewed the assignment with the c...

    Must Take Course!

    This 12 week course, while tough, created a great foundation for my future in web development! My instructors were helpful every step of the way and always pushed me to keep going! When I feel a little behind my Success manager gave an extra tutoring session to catch up. Overall this was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking to start a new path!

    I enjoyed taking this course very much and learned a lot from it in such a short time. The 24-week part-time web development course is an excellent course for anyone to become a full-stack web developer. I learned new skills every week. This course definitely requires you to dedicate plenty of time to studying, especially for those who do not have any previous programming experience. In the end, I feel that I have been greatly rewarded with the knowledge and skills that I will need to fo...
