Are You a Transformer?

A lot of the conversations the Code Fellows team have with prospective students focus on the value Code Fellows provides to our students. And rightly so. There are a lot of choices out there and there are only so many resources and so much time.

These conversations typically touch on our peer-to-peer learning, the small classes, and the real world projects our students get to work on. Each of these aspects of Code Fellows is valuable and each is a powerful benefit for our students as they become professional coders.

But these conversations only tell half the story.

The other half of the conversation- which is equally important - centers on what the individual brings to their bootcamp experience.

At Code Fellows we provide those educational, professional, and network tools that we believe will make our students thrive both in the classroom and in the workforce. It’s up to the students to reach out and make the most of those resources.

The most successful Code Fellows are those who are entrepreneurial in spirit and proactive in approach. They actively seek our mentorship; they quickly identify the companies they’d like to work with or jobs they’d like to have. They mentor their peers and aren’t afraid to learn from them in turn. Most of all, they are hungry for self-improvement and are willing to go out and chase every opportunity until they’ve squeezed as much value as they can out of it.

Yes, Code Fellows provides exceptional bootcamps but it does so for exceptional students. So are you a transformer who’s ready to reach out a grab your future? If so, we want to hear from you!
