* Get The Career You Deserve *

I found Skillcrush by looking up “rad awesome women who code stuff” and it was just so friendly. I was delighted that it could not only be brain stimulating but also fun. I knew that would motivate me to keep up with the lessons. In the end, it was less than a year from starting classes to becoming a paid web developer…it can happen fast. I have two little boys. I feel proud that they can say my mom’s a web developer. She’s the software engineer. That’s really cool. I like that.

The Economy’s Crazy, but My New Skills Still Landed Me a New Job

I was job hunting after being furloughed from my company a few weeks ago. I just accepted a new position last week and start tomorrow! Grateful to have a job in this economic craziness…hard work pays off!

Skillcrush completely changed my life. Only 10 months after starting my first lesson, I was able to land a flexible job at a media agency and am continuously growing my freelance web design/dev business. Can’t say enough amazing things about the entire Skillcrush team and learning process! Keep being awesome and empowering women to break into tech!

Why Spend Thousands on Lessons When All You Need Is Skillcrush?

After being in the ‘wild’ I have learned that the education I gained from my Skillcrush courses has far exceeded my counterparts, some of who spent thousands more on continuing ed courses at local universities. It’s important to know that the foundational knowledge is covered here. Others are having a much harder time finding positions due to simple lack of core ‘test’ question answers asked to land interviews.

I went from being unhappy, unsatisfied, and hopeless for a better career to this new path…You’re not going to look back and regret joining Skillcrush. I don’t think that I would have gained such a solid foundation and confidence in my skills without it. The community really helped me feel like I can do this. I belong here. I think that’s something I never would’ve found anywhere else.

Totally Lives Up to the Hype!

I am someone who gives up on difficult things easily, which can make learning new skills as an adult quite difficult. Skillcrush makes it easy to learn at your own pace and divides up each subject into bite-sized chunks. It has kept me motivated to keep going, even when I get stuck. There’s a great student community on Slack where you can ask questions of your instructors and fellow students, town halls where you can all talk through bigger issues, and career counseling to help you use what you learned after you’ve done it.

Best Coding Bootcamp for Career Changers

If you are a career changer, Skillcrush is the BEST program out there. You will not find a better, more cost-effective bootcamp experience out there. I signed up for two tracks: Frontend Developer and the Get Hired Tracks. It cost exponentially less than every other option out there that provides live support and access to coaching. The Frontend Developer track was very comprehensive and gave me substantive practice with many of the latest technologies. As you work towards completing each topic, Skillcrush provides regular checkpoints throughout the curriculum with a real person who can provide real-time feedback as you progress through each topic, making you feel confident about the code you have written and providing guidance if you are stuck. There are also live Q&A sessions available multiple times a week and a lively Slack channel that essentially provides 24/7 support. The portfolio projects showcase that you know how to build using the latest technologies and have been carefully designed to be great practice and great material for LinkedIn and applications. The Get Hired track provided amazing guidance, particularly as a career changer. The units helped me convert my existing resume and LinkedIn profile to one that looked like I belonged in the software industry. In fact, Skillcrush’s advice was so effective that recruiters from major companies reached out to me. In addition to the unit content, you also have access to a weekly coaching session for 12 weeks where you can share your progress (or lack thereof), get advice, and receive support. This was a very worthwhile investment to make in addition to the curriculum to help me locate jobs and be as prepared as possible for the interviewing process. Thanks to Skillcrush, the process from starting the first lesson to the job offer was five months. I not only got a job offer from a major company, but Skillcrush also coached me on how to increase my salary and benefits upward. I cannot more highly recommend Skillcrush and their team. They guided me from start to finish towards a new career that will change life for myself and my family. Check them out – you won’t be sorry!

Skillcrush Makes the Thought of My Dream Career Go From a Dream to Reality

Skillcrush is AMAZING!!!!…I love how the classes are set up and that mentors are easily available when I need help. They’re like your own personal cheerleaders and cheer you on the whole way!!! When feeling discouraged, I reach out and they always respond and provide advice…I researched other courses, even free ones, but Skillcrush stood out to me knowing that I would have mentors and a community of others in my situation.

Beyond My Expectations!

I am so excited about the program and how helpful and easy everyone has made it…The staff members, Sharon, Caroline, and others, always respond to my questions in such a timely fashion. Not only are the responses so quick, but so accurate in their diagnosis…They have been so patient and kind. I am so grateful I found Skillcrush.

I didn’t know I could create a career from nothing, I didn’t know a creative career in tech could exist, and without connecting with Skillcrush, there’s no way that I would be doing what I’m doing.

If I hadn’t taken Skillcrush classes, I would never have come this far because I would have continued to let fear and imposter syndrome hold me back. Finding a community who was going through the transition process with you, and who could speak to it in a real way, was crucial. I couldn’t have done it without them.

It Was the Perfect Balance of Challenge and Support. The Training Is World-Class.

Let me start out by saying that I’m fifty-eight years old…have three kids at home, and a full-time very physically demanding job. I didn’t have the time, cognitive ability, or money to waste. Skillcrush offers excellent training, support, and a well-traveled path to reach your personal and professional goals. This work is done remotely, but you are only as alone as you want to be. There’s camaraderie and support a few keystrokes away from the instructors and other students. The staff and instructors go the extra mile to make sure all of your questions are fully answered. If entering the tech world is your goal, you cannot invest your time or money in a more thorough or effective program.

Skillcrush’s way of doing it, teaching style, and everything was just comforting. From the beginning, the Skillcrush community definitely gave me a sense of welcoming that, especially for me, is very important. Diversity and inclusion is very important to me and I saw a lot of that here and I loved it.

The Courses I Wanted and Encouragement I Needed!

I am celebrating my completion of the Break Into Tech – Designer Track through Skillcrush! I had been laid off by the company I served for 18 years due to the pandemic. I needed hard skills and the background to help me get a job that I wanted. Enter Skillcrush! I started doing research to figure out what training I needed to get a job working as a product designer. I came across Skillcrush and Adda Birnir’s story, which I found to be similar to mine. I really loved that it was founded by a woman in response to her own job loss and that it appeared to be run by mostly women! It was a story I needed to hear and she kept telling it until I was ready to jump in with both feet. I started the classes in June of 2020, and I completed the BIT-Fast Track for Designers in October! I am applying for jobs and know I will find the right one soon… and I enjoyed the classes so much that I will continue taking other classes through Skillcrush until working takes over all of my time. I am grateful to Adda and the Skillcrush team for their support and constant encouragement. I will continue using and referring to the classes I took to support me in new roles as things change or I need to review skills or processes. They also have some terrific masterclasses and career training and counseling!
