    Hard But Worth It

    I did a lot of research before enrolling in a bootcamp and I think Tech Elevator is a great choice because of the languages taught and the career help. The bootcamp is very hard and intense but the other students were great to work with and we did a lot of pairs programming which I was skeptical of at first and ended up really enjoying the process. They have matchmaking days with some employers hiring entry-level tech jobs (like development, QA, and tech support roles). A few people from...

    Life Changer!

    It's hard, it's scary, it's stressful, BUT it is completely worth it. You'll meet a lot of other great people learning just like you, and it'll seem like it's impossible to learn all of the stuff in the program, but you just have to trust in the process. It is absolutely a life changing experience. I was skeptical, but after you do a couple of interviews, you'll build that confidence that you truly know your stuff. In the end I had to two offers, and couldn't be happier with where I ende...

    Tech Elevator Was Amazing

    Tech Elevator was an amazing experience that changed the course of my professional career. I came into the program with little idea of what I wanted to do going forward with my life, and I left with direction and the skills to become a professional in the tech field.

    The best bootcamp

    Prior to joining Tech Elevator, when I was deciding on a Bootcamp to attend the two things that set them apart were the Pathway Program and the fact their job placement rate was 90% and that number was updated and checked by a third party each year. The Pathway program completely exceeded my expectations and did more than what I expected. They help you from day 1 until you find a job. They helped us prepare our resumes, practice interviews, taught us how to network and market ourselves a...

    Expectations met and exceeded at Tech Elevator Pittsburgh

    I went in to Tech Elevator with a couple of random college courses in coding and some self taught knowledge, and graduated from the program with a job starting a few weeks later. Not only did I get up to date and speed on current technologies and techniques used in industry, I also gained major soft skills working with others on code and got invaluable guidance through my job application processes. Not to mention the fact that the pathway team at TE set me up with more than half of my in...

    Opportunity Awaits!

    Enrolling at Tech Elevator turned out to be a great path forward for me and my career. Pairing their certificate program with any amount of existing education will give you a huge advantage in entering the tech workforce.

    My cohort was initially supposed to be in-person when I enrolled, so I was apprehensive when it was decided to go fully remote because I had very little experience with remote learning. However, the transition was seamless and I felt that I got just as much out o...

    Put in the Work and You'll Be Successful

    I've always wanted to have a career as a software developer, and when I was laid off from my job because of the pandemic, I decided there was no better time to just finally DO IT. After extensive research, I chose to go the bootcamp route instead of going back for another degree and Tech Elevator was in my short list of options.

    The main reason I picked TE was because of how localized it is. I wanted a bootcamp that knew my area and had connections to companies there. I was also a...

    This bootcamp has what it takes to get you a job in tech

    This 14 week bootcamp gave me the fundamentals I needed to transition into the tech industry. Even though it was a really fast paced bootcamp, I learned a heck of a lot and built some very neat things in the pairs programming and capstone team projects. The tech instructors were very engaging, extremely helpful, and did a great job teaching remote. The Pathway program was one of the main reasons I chose Tech Elevator over other bootcamps- their network of hiring partners, the assistance ...

    They look for placement rather than teaching

    From my experience with TE and their staff who is very kind is that the program heavily focuses on placement in any old job as soon as possible. It’s almost a crunch to meet the 90% placement goal rather than actually helping others grow and chang their lives
