Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I suck at whiteboard interviews too.

We revised the numbers earlier this week, and actually they are a bit lower. We are on the process of updating the metrics on the website. We expect to complete that by Monday, June 13th the latest.

Here is the breakdown for the students that graduated in 2015:

  1. Students that signed before graduation: 30.5%
  2. Full-time employment within 30 days: 53.3%
  3. Full-time employment within 60 days: 69.5%
  4. Full-time employment within 90 days: 86.7%
  5. Full-time employment within 120 days: 92.4%
  6. Full-time employment within 180 days: 98.1%

In terms of the jobs that our students got in the same period:

  1. Full-time developers: 92.5%
  2. Apprenticeships: 1.1%
  3. Quality Assurance: 3.3%
  4. Contractors / Self-employed: 1.1%
  5. Employed by Turing: 2.2%

Our full report is here: report.turing.io. You can dowload the raw data here.

You can find all of our graduates, employed and unemployed, at alumni.turing.io. I would encourage you to pick anyone at random if you want to talk to them. Their contact info is on their profiles. They are quite friendly.

Here are the reviews that students have published at CourseReport, including the negative ones.
