JOB PLACEMENTLearning coding is a long path with a lot of skills and experience obtained during long hours of working on your projects, debugging, trying and failing before succeeding. We believe that it’s not possible to train a developer in 8 weeks (or 12, or 16, or 20 for that matter). Since we accept students with zero experience what we do is try to give them the fundamental understanding of how web development works, introduce to the right tools and libraries and help them to get on track of improving and mastering their skills. We firmly believe, that without 4-10 months of developing experience it would be pretty hard to land a good paying job. One way to do it is to apply for the internship (for which there are many possibilities in Barcelona and outside it) and after that while gaining mastery grow inside chosen company. Another way to work for clients or non-profits implementing knowledge obtained during our bootcamp and with gained experience and impressive portfolio apply for your dream job. Some students might find it interesting to stay with us after the graduation and have an internship as an assistant instructors or work on some projects coming from our web dev lab. Where are many options really and we will try our best to help you to chose your path and succeed on it. Just please don’t believe the false promises, better believe in yourself and you’ll be fine. We are going to make sure of it!
