    Would do it again

    This decision was a long time coming for me. My family and I suffered from repercussions of COVID and the crazy inflation. I was holding out, hoping for something to open up in my previous field, but it never did. I had looked into online programs for Software dev, but was never confident enough to try. Then I had a few friends complete the TE program and get jobs. What gave me the courage to finally take the plunge was TE's track record for student, job placement, and their promise of c...

    Best Career Decision I've Ever Made

    Before attending Tech Elevator I was an Ohio State graduate with about 6 years of experience in mostly sales and customer service positions. I wasn't happy with my compensation, the monotony of sales, the work-life balance, or working in the office 5 days a week. After doing much research and conversing with a friend who had graduated Tech Elevator years prior, I decided to take the risk of quitting my job for this bootcamp (I did the full-time 14 week program).

    Works As Advertised

    My career change was successful and efficient thanks to the guidance of Tech Elevator Cincinnati. After being accepted into the full time program, the onboarding process went smoothly. My questions and concerns were always addressed quickly, and the overall organization was very good. In 14 weeks, I gained many relevant tools and skills to apply for my first job. Additionally, Tech Elevator has additional curriculum called the Pathways program that focuses on fine tuning resumes, how to ...

    Tech Elevator helped me elevate my family

    Yes its expensive, Yes its hard, and Yes its worth it.
    Before TE I was working doing tech support and was unhappy with my prospects in that field. So I made the jump and picked TE for two main reasons. 
    First - Success Rate. I'm a fan of data and CIRR report was what tipped me over the edge to make the jump
    Second - it was remote and flexible.  Since I have a family I needed to support at home as well.

    Well worth it!

    I was in an online class (National Live Remote) but attended the Pittsburgh pathway program via zoom since I live in the greater Pittsburgh area and was looking for a job in my area. If you would like to attend remote classes but live near a campus location I highly recommend that you attend an NLR cohort that coincides with the in-person cohort so that you can attend the local matchmaking at the end of the bootcamp.

    Great Java Bootcamp

    Tech Elevator is not only a well-designed curriculum to learn how to be a full-stack developer but also fantastic for helping you land a job after graduating. The staff genuinely cares about your learning and helping you succeed. The program is rigorous and I felt well supported throughout.

    Lived up to the claims

    Tech Elevator gave me the instruction and career support needed to make a switch into the tech field. I'm not sure what else to say, I was skeptical at first about it since it is a large life choice, but I met many friends, mentors, and connections that I will always cherish--from my new position!

    Life Changing Experience

    Before Tech Elevator, I had left my previous job to find my passion and pursue other opportunities. I begain by taking short, free online coding courses, but I knew that wouldn't be enough to have a career in this industry. I reached out to a colleague that graduated from Tech Elevator the year prior, and asked for more information. Ultimately, I ended up applying, interviewing and getting accepted to the bootcamp.

    The course was rigorous, stressful and a huge learning curve. The ...

    life changing experience

    Hey everyone, 
     I graduated from Tech Elevator Java Bootcamp in Cincinnati a couple of weeks ago. I suggest you to choose this course if you are still considering it because there are many reasons. First of all, my background. I worked as a caregiver for a couple of years, later became a truck driver, and opened my small logistics business. The industry has been under heavy pressure recently, so I decided to move into IT. I started my education at TE in September...

    Life changing learning experience

    I truly could not say enough positive things about my experience with Tech Elevator. The instructors were all extremely knowledgable and went above and beyond to make sure each student succeeded. The career prep program was also very strong. I came from a completely unrelated field and a few months worth of self-teaching with FreeCodeCamp and Codecademy, and was able to secure a full-time job as a software developer before graduation.

    In terms of technical instruction, the basic s...
