Hey guys. I graduated from a community college a few months ago with an associate’s in Computer Programming and Web Programming. I have a portfolio (adace123.github.io/portfolio-site) with a number of projects under my belt, but the job search has been tough so far. After having applied to numerous companies, nothing much has turned up.
Thus, I’m thinking of joining a bootcamp. The one I’m leaning towards is Lambda School because of their income-sharing agreement and job/salary guarantee, as well as their more in-depth curriculum as compared with other bootcamps. I’m also considering the Thinkful because of the lower cost of their part-time bootcamp but the issues I have with them are that there’s no salary guarantee and they count a “paid apprenticeship” as having fulfilled the job guarantee.
Overall though, I’m really not sure about a bootcamp because, while I would most likely benefit from it, the massive time and money commitment makes is making me have second thoughts.
So my questions to you boil down to:
- Should go for a bootcamp or hold out and keep applying?
- What do you think about Lambda School and their income-sharing agreement? Is there any other similar bootcamp that I should consider?
