While you keep growing your programming skills, our placement team will start connecting you to interview for tech apprenticeships with the employers that are a fit for your skills and interests. Sometimes, employers even offer our candidates a full-time tech job on the spot.
Work on a team of experienced software developers, get paired with a mentor that invests in your growth, learn on the job, and prove yourself. More than four out of five tech apprentices convert to permanent employment at their company in a median of 12 weeks.
