    The structure I needed

    Where Tech Elevator shines is the structure, the instructors and the like-minded classmates you meet along the way. Tons of resources are offered. Mock interviews, help with exercises, help with personal projects. Even after graduation, instructors are eager to help and genuinely interested in what you're working on. A lot of time is also spent on the job-searching side of things but nothing is guaranteed. I did not get many calls back and ultimately got my job through the matchmaking pr...

    Forged in Fire

    Tech Elevator was a huge help to my career. I had graduated from college with a degree in computer science a year before but had trouble getting a job and I feel as though the career aspect of the boot camp really pushed me to succeed. All of the help with LinkedIn, Resumes, Interviews, and the great guidance of the Pathway directors and both Tom's was insane. I can't thank Tom Anderson and Tom Medvitz enough for being so good at what they do. The courses really teach you everything you ...

    Tech Elevator thoroughly prepared me to enter the tech job market. They taught me the technical skills to be proficient in interviews and junior level positions as well as provided ample resources to find a job that suited me.

    An unforgettable experience

    Tech Elevator is a great experience for those who are wanting to change their career path and who are willing to put in lots of work. I worked in education for 11 years and had almost zero programming experience before applying. It's true that Tech Elevator's curriculum and instructors (speaking for the Columbus ones) are so good that you can go from complete beginner to actually building a full-stack app in 14 weeks. Frequently throughout the program, I doubted whether I would really le...

    Mixed feelings...

    I will be upfront and say that while this review may seem a little critical and unyielding in what I perceive to be some of the flaws in my experience and I do not want to convey TE as being a "bad" program. TE does a fine job of touting the positives of their program, as do many of their alum. My job here is to show you what I perceive as the negatives in my experience that I wish was relayed to me before I signed up as that information is far harder to come by.
    So why signup for Tec...

    A fulfilling and fruitful experience

    While this bootcamp is very challenging and time consuming it is one of the most fulfilling experiences I've ever had as it has equipped me with the skills to enter the workforce at a young age, as well as offer personal/career development. What distinguished this bootcamp from others in my mind is the fact that they offered this career development that allowed me to become better at interviewing, and selling myself as a candidate which is invaluable moving forward in the future as a 21 ...

    Exceptional experience, 100% worth it

    I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Tech Elevator.  I will write about my experience in a moment, but first I would like to detail my experience after the bootcamp since that is likely what anyone reading reviews is looking for.  Obviously everyone's experience with a job search will differ, but I graduated towards the end of December and had an offer by the beginning of March.  I firmly believe that the reason that it even took that long was that the beginning of a new...

    Life Changing

    Signing up for Tech Elevator was a huge leap of faith. It was a scary commitment and a lot of effort. However, with the amazing support of everyone at TE, the days inched by until I accepted a full time offer on our very last day.

    The instructors were both very knowledgeable and encouraging. They took the time to explain concepts and assignments in detail, always emphasizing to not be afraid of asking questions which is an absolute must in the industry. They genuinely care for the...

    Creating Life Changing Opportunities in a Supportive Enviornment

    Tech Elevator opened the door to new opportunities by teaching me the code, and more importantly the skills to continue learning and growing. With the skills I developed during my time at Tech Elevator, I was able to jump into a new career with confidence, ask the right questions to help me learn a new language, and quickly become a participating member of a team.

    Life changing

    I’ve attended several universities, technical colleges, and military schools.  I can say with full confidence that Tech Elevator was the best educational experience I have ever had.  After graduating college with an arts degree, I had a difficult time finding a good-paying job.  After three months at Tech Elevator my career completely shifted gears.  I’m making more money now than I ever have.  My career is now challenging and fulfilling.  TE is the real deal!

    Amazing Experience and Amazing People!

    Tech Elevator worked for me! I even landed a job at a global technology company before finishing the 14-week program! 
    The curriculum is solid, well organized, and taught in a way that really helped me absorb and retain the information, even at the accelerated pace it was being provided. There are a couple of topics I would have liked to go more in-depth on, but Tech Elevator does a wonderful job of teaching you to "learn how to learn", so diving into those areas is much less daunting...

    A Good Step, But Not Everything I Wanted It To Be

    I have so much good to say about Tech Elevator, and a handful of things I wish had been done differently. I'm going to share my thoughts on, 1) TE staff and support, 2) curriculum, 3) the Pathway program (career prep/counseling), and 4) the overall purpose of a short-term boot camp and how I feel TE stacks up against that.

    First, I want to express just how amazing all of the TE staff is. I truly felt that everyone at TE was both competent to teach the material and genuinely wanted...
