    Job Assistance:

    This course was offered in partnership with Trilogy Education Services. I was in their first cohort, but I'm not sure if UMass Amherst has any future cohorts planned with Trilogy. In any case, Trilogy does the majority of the work in providing the curriculum and teaching the courses, so my review applies to other Coding Bootcamps that Trilogy offers in partnership with any other university in the country.

    I don't want to write a lenghty review, but it suffices to say that I have learned a lot in the program. In just six months, I went from working in the hotel industry to being offered a job as a Junior Web Developer for $70K, a $20K increase from my previous job. I was offered this job two days ago - exactly 30 days after the program ended.

    The majority of the students in my cohort did not come from a tech background but were natural problem solvers and analytical thinkers (a few were not, but still did quite well). They were also from diverse backgrounds, including a recent immigrant from Eastern Europe who works as a waiter, a local Boston father of two young children who works in construction, a theologian, and an African American woman who is part of the LGBTQ community. Everyone did extremely well in the program and I am confident they will all be getting jobs soon in the industry.
