The success rates that Tech Elevator has is really a testament to how intelligent and dedicated the staff are to helping the students succeed through this rigorous and demanding program.
The technical knowledge that is obtained while attending Tech Elevator is astonishing, but the shining feature of Tech Elevator is the Pathway Program®.
A 22% increase in salary, full benefits, more PTO than I could use in a year, and all in an environment and culture I’m happy to be a part of. It’s an opportunity to literally change your life in 14 weeks.
My background is in education and prior to attending Tech Elevator I had almost no experience in coding.
I knew of bootcamps and after a few minutes on Google, I found Tech Elevator along with some upcoming open house dates.
I attended an open house unsure of what to expect and left excited to get home and start my application.
The real pre-requisite you need for Tech Elevator is the desire to make a change. Here is what you get from Tech Elevator: --Dedicated, knowledgable, approachable teachers who want to see you succede and provide every possible resource to make sure you don't get left behind. --A job placement program that is as close as you are going to get to a real life "Step by Step Guide To Getting A Job for Dummies." --An immersive environment with 31 other lost souls from all walks of life going through a big scary transition. They are transparent, accountable, and open, and have managed to eliminate pretty much everything thats stupid about higher-education.
This is a crucial selling point -- you will not feel alone at any time in the process. But to learn the skills you need, you really are going to have to work hard. Overall, the program delivers as promised for everyone who puts in the work. I make 50k, get free healthcare, and work at a ridiculous Silicon-Valley esque start-up with bean bag lounges, free beer, and a barber who cuts my hair at work.
