Thank you so much for your review, Annalisa! We are happy you chose our program to start a new career. This is a fast-paced program that requires students to put in extensive time and effort to master the course material in a short amount of time, so we commend all the hard work you dedicated. We are thrilled your instructor was always prepared and knowledgeable - we also think Jeff is amazing!

You are completely right that our career services are built on the principle of empowerment, and we do not secure direct employment for students. We strive to prepare and coach students as they work to find the job that's right for them through individualized support, technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, and more. As you noted, it's important for students to continue learning and developing their skills, even after graduating from the course, in order to reinforce their career search. We truly appreciate your feedback as we are constantly refining our services to best help students prepare as they step out into the job market. Congratulations on graduating and we wish you great success going forward!

Hi Karin, 

Thank you for taking the time to share your personal experience with us. We want to first congratulate you on seeing the course through to the end and finishing strong! We are aware that completing a rigorous program like ours requires extensive hours of review and practice. 

It's great to hear that you were happy with your instructors and that they were able to provide a positive learning experience. We are constantly working to ensure the success of our students and are very proud of the passion and support that our instructional staff provides. 

Because we teach such a wide array of technologies in a short amount of time, our curriculum focuses on giving students a high level, hands-on understanding of the topics covered in class, with the goal of students expanding on that understanding outside of class. We regularly audit and update our curriculum based on the market demands and employer input, and the companies that we engage with do feel that we teach a robust set of skills to make our students competitive job seekers.

We regret to hear that your time with our career services team did not meet your expectations due to the departure of your original career director. After their departure, Anita Smalls stepped in as career director, providing various professional development services such as 1:1 coaching, resume support, portfolio reviews, and more. Our records indicate that after you expressed dissatisfaction with the level of support you were receiving, both Anita and our Vice President of Career Services, attempted to reach you on several occasions, starting in January. While they were not able to personally reach you, we did continue sending additional job opportunities in your area. Were any of these opportunities of interest to you? We know job seeking is difficult and strenuous, which is why we encourage students to submit a number of quality applications on a weekly basis; this helps students maximize their networking and increase their possibilities of securing a well-matched position. 

The career services team strives to be clear about expectations for our job support. While we cannot secure a job for you, we are here to empower you with the tools and preparation needed to find the right role. We were able to provide you with feedback on your career ready tools and hope you found that to be helpful.

Our goal is for all students to leave the program feeling equipped for success and confident in their skills. As our career services do not end at graduation, we would love the opportunity to provide you with any additional career readiness support you need at this time to help you put your best foot forward as you continue the job search. Please contact me directly at (704) 601-6030 so we can further discuss your needs.

We really appreciate your recommendation of this course to others, and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Hi James, thank you for your feedback. Based on your review, it sounds like you enjoyed your instructors. UNC Charlotte and the entire Trilogy team are committed to transforming our students' lives.

In your post, you indicated that we are neither equipped nor care to accommodate disabilities. Contrary to this, we want to assure you that our university does have a robust disability accommodation process and procedure and we pride ourselves on making arrangements when requested. Throughout your time with us, we have received no requests for such accommodations on your behalf, but are more than happy to work with you should you wish.

We're always looking for new ways to expand our services to best serve the needs of our students. From the inception of our boot camp, we have been working to expand access to people from all backgrounds, including veterans. The UNC Charlotte Director of Continuing Education grew up in a military family and the Trilogy COO is a veteran himself. Both of them are wholeheartedly committed to making our boot camps attainable to those who have served in the military. Some of our most successful students are veterans, as they often have extensive experience in leadership, collaborative teamwork, and creative problem-solving that makes them stand out. Although the GI Bill is not able to cover  all of our Continuing Education programs at this time, we are working toward offering this financial option in the future.

Our career services team works to provide each student with fair and equal opportunities. There is no place for any kind of discrimination in our programs, and we take all concerns of this nature very seriously. However, it is our position that population-specific workshops geared toward groups, like "Women in Tech," are not a form of discrimination. Our mission has always been to provide an inclusive space where aspiring web developers can study and learn a wide range of skills — regardless of their prior knowledge or professional backgrounds. To facilitate this goal, we work hard to cultivate a respectful community that equips all students with the necessary tools and environment to excel. We regret to hear that the class environment was not what you were hoping for.

It's important for us to simulate real-world settings. Because our program can be overwhelming at times, we try to provide a low student to instructor ratio for individuals to navigate the curriculum properly. As your cohort did have a larger class size, we implemented two instructors and four TAs.

In your review, you mentioned there is no way to know how you are doing in the course. One way students can monitor their progress is through homework reviews. As you noted, individuals who would like more in-depth context to their homework are directed to watch supplemental video walkthroughs. Each student is also assigned a TA to ensure they have a designated team member to contact for further input or assistance. Our system shows all your graded assignments do have comments attached but did notice you had one ungraded LIRI Bot exercise. We apologize for this oversight and appreciate this detail as we continue to improve our services.

We understand all individuals will have different boot camp experiences, and we are fully supportive of each personal narrative posted on review sites, like this one. When we receive a less than satisfactory response, our first priority is to follow up with the student and resolve their complaints or concerns, to the best of our abilities. Our team did approach you in this same manner in hopes of rectifying any and all worries you had. 

We're always looking for new ways to expand our services to best serve the needs of our students.

Amazing, Brandt! We’re happy to hear your instructor always supported you throughout your boot camp journey - we also think Jeff is pretty great! Like you mentioned, this is a challenging course, covering a wide range of knowledge in a limited amount of time. Since we cover a full-stack curriculum, topics are introduced at a high-level, after which students are expected to dive in and gain a deeper understanding outside of class. We're happy to hear you enjoyed this structure and have to agree that if you are willing to show up every day to learn and work hard, you can truly be successful. Thank you for your review and for imparting some great advice to potential students. Congratulations on graduating and we wish you all the best in your career endeavors!

Congratulations on your position as a developer! And thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. As you mention, it’s important for future students to know that this course does require a time commitment for dedicated study and practice outside of class. You also make an excellent point in that professional web developers are often required to learn new languages and tools. These are fantastic insights.

It’s wonderful that you enjoyed the collaborative atmosphere, and were able to build a network of peers within your cohort. We know that the ability to work with others is important in the field of web development, so we’ve designed a curriculum that incorporates opportunities for teamwork in order to simulate real-world professional working conditions.

We love that you enjoyed duck-debugging, and that our team was able to support you during the rigors of this program. We hope you’re proud of all of the hard work you put into completing the course. We’re so excited for your continued success, and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
