The program helped me to hone my JS skills in ways that my previous education never covered.

At the same time, it gave me a soft intro to how to collaborate with a team and complete projects on a deadline.

I would not have been able to secure a job at Google without this valuable period of mentorship.

Bridging the gap between bootcamp and reality

Here are a few of the benefits of joining the This Dot apprentice program:

Real-world development experience and practical knowledge. Put what you learned in bootcamp into practice. There’s no substitute for experience.

A full time mentor to help you troubleshoot any problems you encounter along the way.

Direct-to-hire opportunities: Companies work with us to help them build a more diverse pipeline for direct hires. Get hired directly after you complete the apprenticeship.

Learn how to work within a dev team, how project management works at a high level, and the soft skills your bootcamp didn't teach you.
