We knew that in order to build an online school that delivered results, we had to rethink job prep and placement. Too often, getting hired is viewed as an afterthought. At Thinkful, job prep is taught as a skill you practice with 1-on-1 help and feedback. It's the foundation of our Web Development Bootcamp and it starts in your first week.
You'll begin expanding your professional network after your full admission. We'll help you spend time at the right meetups and events where your future colleagues already hang out.
Interviewing takes practice, but too often candidates don't prepare. Throughout your course, you'll have five interviews with hiring managers that will test your knowledge and your approach to problem solving. After each mock interview, you will receive a follow up with feedback for next time.
Once you graduate you'll be ready for the job hunt, and that's when your Career Coach at Thinkful joins your team. For six months, we'll help you apply to positions near you.
Practice interviews throughout the course help you articulate what you've learned. Each interview is led by a mentor whose current job includes hiring programmers.
Thank you for sharing your bounds of experience in negotiating and selling myself to companies. I think it has helped me portray myself more confidently to the team at Google.Keith Anderson, Thinkful grad
Liz Parsekian, a former Thinkful student herself, will meet with you midway through the course to get a sense of your professional goals and skills. Then after graduation, as you meet weekly with your Career Coach, you will work closely with Liz to target the companies you want to work for in your city, reply to introductions, and go to interviews.
I’m ready to help you find work in your city. I’ll introduce you to hiring managers and make sure your resume/portfolio is ready to go.

Grae and Liz continue to be excellent resources in my job search. Transitioning to a completely new field is a bit scary, and they have helped ease that greatly. I really appreciate Thinkful for offering such a robust and involved post graduation, career search program, because I feel like I would have felt a bit lost were I just plugging away at this on my own.Matt Morris, Thinkful grad
Graduates have been hired in cities as large as San Francisco, CA and as small as Pensacola, FL. Unlike traditional bootcamp hiring networks, we’ll make sure you land a job close to home.
