    Data Science Career Track Review

    I am very satisfied with the overall experience. Shortly after finishing I was able to land a job in Data Science (in Germany- I am German).  The material provides a great overview on the topic, though some of it could be improved. The mentor calls were extremely helpful and motivating for me. Career support was also great.

    Data Science Career Track

    Pros:
    Datacamp resource - I really liked in-browser coding paired with short lecture videos to be very effective to get practice with the key parts of data science problem solving.  There were lots of practice exercises that helped give me a better understanding of the concepts.

    Mentorship - I really liked my mentor, he was very experienced and had lots of industry knowledge, and it was obvious he had a strong grasp of the subject matter. As a part of the curr...

    Very Thorough!

    If you have a baseline knowledge of statistics, business and Excel then this is a very great course! Personally, I did not have any knowledge of Excel prior to this course and very little in business and finances, so it took me a bit longer to finish the course. However, beyond that, the SQL, Python, and Tableau/Power BI skills were amazing and intuitive. Highly recommend!

    Waste of money

    I don’t write reviews, but I have to write this particular review and warn others to be careful. Springboard doesn’t teach you anything for their Data Science track program. Don’t waste your good credit score, you will end up being in debt. Their curriculum is poor, and their mentorship program sucks so badly. They basically don’t add any value to you as a student. You will still end up being jobless and in debts due to some hidden clauses in their contracts.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your review and bringing our attention to this issue. Here at Springboard we set a really high standard to support our students towards a positive learning experience and securing a job in the field upon graduating, and are truly sorry that that standard was not met while you were in the course.

    Our Data Science Career Track is one of our longest running and most established programs that we offer, with a proven history of over 92% of grads landing a job in the field within one year of graduating, and an average increase of over $23,000 between their pre- and post-course salaries. The curated curriculum consists of the most cutting edge resources available to learn from, as selected by our team of industry experts and instructional designers. Additionally, we also have an extensive career curriculum integrated directly into the data science curriculum so that students can prepare to land their dream job simultaneously as they develop their technical skills.

    Furthermore, we offer an extensive support system to all of our students. This includes weekly 1:1 mentorship calls with a data science professional throughout the duration of the course, 1:1 meetings with career coaches, and assigned student advisors to provide assistance with online learning, time management, and ensuring that students are set up for success.

    We recognize that life happens and sometimes students need to step away from the course for a time, and we have a formalized process for students to take breaks in these instances by working together with their student advisor. This process is covered in detail during orientation and there is ample information available on the student 'Help' page in the course dashboard as well. It sounds like this process may have been misunderstood in your case, and if that was due to a miscommunication on our part, then we sincerely apologize.

    We are always open to reviewing issues like this on a case-by-case basis and will work with students individually to find a fair solution, especially if the issue was due to any shortcoming on Springboard's part. If you felt that there was anything we could have done better to support you towards a successful experience in the course, we value that feedback and would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact advising@sprinboard.com and schedule a call with us.

    Thank you once again for your review and we look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,

    Top Notch Experience

    I really liked the syllabus that covered topics that are essential for a data analyst role. The weekly mentor calls helped me to be on track with the course and the on-demand mentor calls were always a savior whenever I faced a roadblock. The mentors are all highly knowledgeable industry experts. And lastly, the carrier coaching also helped me to prepare confidently for upcoming job interviews. I would highly recommend any aspiring data analyst to take this course.

    Data science career track

    Waste of time and money. They are attracting people with job guarantee tag. But, it has lot of conditions. There is no proper curriculum. Course material is not own. It has just links from various websites. Not much use of mentor and career coach. I learnt lot from free courses than from Springboard. BIG NO NO.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear if you do not feel you got the most value out of your course.

    We do proudly back our programs up with a Job Guarantee, meaning that we are so confident in our program's ability to prepare you for a career in the field, that we guarantee you'll land a job in the field within 6 months of graduating or your tuition money back. To best set students up for a successful career search, we do expect that they will meet certain requirements, which include completing all of the career-readiness units in the curriculum, covering topics such as updating your LinkedIn and resume, networking strategies, writing cover letters, salary negotiation, and a vigorous mock interview process. Students meet with career coaches regularly along the way, both during and after the course, to support them with their job search.

    Our curriculum also consists of the best resources available for both technical subject matter as well as career readiness, as curated by our team of industry experts, career coaches, and instructional designers. Throughout the course, students have access to a number of resources and subject matter experts who can provide support and feedback on exercises: weekly calls with your assigned mentor throughout the entire course, Teaching Assistants, weekly office hours, as well as an online Slack community where students can ask and answer questions with their peers, alumni, and professionals in the field. If you were not aware of any of these resources and how to take advantage of them, that's a miss on our part, and we sincerely apologize.
