Weekly Schedule

Your packed schedule has been designed to ensure that you have the greatest number of touch-points possible with instructors, to get the help you need in order to be successful. Each week, we assess your progress, give in-person code reviews and invite you into daily 1:1 office hours with instructors for extra help.

Finding a Job

A large part of why Project Shift is able to have such a high number of graduates land jobs quickly is due to our full-time partnerships, career development, and career services staff that begin training students from day 1. After graduation, all students have weekly meetings with a Career Services coach. These services are available to you for an unlimited amount of time until you find a job.

According to a survey of past graduates, on average they estimate a 5 year ROI of $150k+. Consider the following factors when figuring out your own ROI:

  • Your current cost of living
  • Your current salary (which you will not have during the 13+ weeks of our program)

  • Your projected new salary (our average starting salary is $66k)
  • The length of time it will take you to find a job (our average is 53 days)
