What does it take to build the world’s next workforce? Mentors and students that are dedicated –– to changing their careers, or those of others. Our mentors guide students in a hundred different ways, every day, while our students come from every different educational, financial and job background imaginable. We’re thankful for their commitment, and we are driven entirely by their success. We’re also thankful for those who took the time to share why Thinkful is important to them, in their own words.
