How Coding Bootcamps Prepare You For Your Career
Whether you’ve just graduated high school, thinking about launching a new career, or you’re planning for your future career, coding bootcamps prepare you for that career and the work you’ll be doing. Even if you aren’t interested in a coding or programming career, attending a coding bootcamp provides invaluable lessons that you will carry with you throughout your professional career. From learning how to effectively work as a team to develop the skills of a lifelong learner, coding bootcamps prepare you for your career like no other alternative.
The immersive environment of coding bootcamps force students to learn on the go and pick up new skills quickly.
At many bootcamps, programs are immersive, which means from day one you’ll be coding. This is beneficial for a few reasons, but the main reason is to get you career ready as quickly as possible. Forcing students to immerse themselves in code means they have to pick up the skills quickly. It takes real grit to keep up in this type of environment. Doing this not only prepares students to be coders, but it prepares them to learn quicker. When you start a new job, they’ll be facing new challenges and have new things to learn almost every day for months. If you’ve attended coding bootcamps, it’ll be easier to pick up on what you need to learn.
It’s not about teamwork for teamwork sake, it’s about working effectively as a team.
In high school and in college you might work with a team to complete a project. You probably grumbled and complained the whole time because usually only one or two team members actually do something. In coding bootcamps, every team member has to do their part or the end result just won’t work. Typically, you work as a team to design and build an application or program. With each team member taking an aspect of the project like writing a line of code that inputs information or designing the user interface, each piece has to come together. More than that, each team member has to meet a certain quality standard during the entirety of the project because the other team members are relying on them.
Career support isn’t about helping you create a resume and sending you out the door.
Coding bootcamps aren’t focused on helping you pass classes and sending you through the graduation process. It’s about developing real skills that employers are looking for, but even after graduation, the bootcamp is still there for you with career support. Many bootcamps work with students even after graduation. They work alongside you to help you get your new coding career started.
