We offer Flex programs (part-time) for all of our courses. Please visit Thinkful.com to find the latest start dates on the corresponding course page of interest.

Instructors are chosen based on their academic credentials, relevant industry experience, and teaching ability.  Thinkful collects weekly feedback from students and staff on program curriculum, projects, and overall student experience in order to evaluate the quality of each program. In addition to student experience, Thinkful also considers industry demand for particular skill sets and success rates with each program in order to look for areas of improvement, ensuring that each program has successful outcomes that matches Thinkful’s mission on a quarterly basis. 

The minimum requirements to serve as a mentor, technical expert, or faculty for all Thinkful programs include: 

  • 3+ years of relevant industry experience 

  • Demonstration of genuine student advocacy and empathy for beginners

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills

You are fully supported from the moment you join Thinkful with a comprehensive, personalized approach to your success that means that while you’re learning online, you’re never alone. Regardless of the program you choose, you’ll have access to: 

  • 1:1 Mentorship -- you’ll be assigned a mentor whose focus is on getting you hired and helping you build a profile that best shows off your skills and strengths

  • Technical coaches/Live Chat -- in addition to technical coaching and office hours sessions, our newly launched virtual messaging platform means you can get answers to study-related questions in real time. 

  • Access to a Slack community -- you’ll have plenty of chances to pair with and learn from your fellow students in a safe, fun, online environment. 

As of now, mentors are assigned by Thinkful based on fit and availability and cannot be chosen by students.  The minimum requirements to serve as a mentor is 3+ years of relevant industry experience,  demonstration of genuine student advocacy and empathy for beginners and exceptional written and verbal communication skills.

Thinkful is dedicated to educating and connecting students to career opportunities via curated workshops and post-graduation support. The Careers team at Thinkful empowers students through a host of programming and resources that are aimed at career advancement as well as transparent outcomes.  We provide career support in the form of 

  • Individual and group sessions 

  • Mock behavioral and technical interviews 

  • Curated technological content 

  • Thematic workshops and career-focused Q&As, topics for which include but are not limited to networking, technical landscape, resume and LinkedIn reviews, cover letter writing, negotiating, navigating the job search, and interview preparation 

Thinkful programs require a computer with a microphone, speakers, webcam, and high-speed internet access fast enough to stream video sessions clearly for upwards of 8 hours a day. Headphones are also highly recommended.

We do not provide you with a computer, and every student must own or have access to a personal computer with at least 16GB RAM, at least 2.0 GHz processor (GPUs are not a requirement), and at least 256 GB HD. Additionally, the computer must be able to download applications and software; computers like Chromebooks will not work. Macs must have the most current OS version installed, and PCs must be using Windows 10 or newer operating systems. 

All Data Analytics courses require Excel in order to start the course. You can find more information in the course catalog.

All Cybersecurity courses require a quad-core or higher processor with support for virtualization technology (Examples: Minimum Intel Core i5/i7, AMD Ryzen 5/7).

Additionally, if you’re planning to purchase new hardware for the Cybersecurity course, the following hardware is recommended to work more efficiently. These are NOT required to be able to participate in the courses, but as a cyber professional you’ll probably want to upgrade to this eventually.

  • The latest processors such as the Intel Core i9, AMD Ryzen 9

  • 32GB or more of RAM 

  • A Solid-State Drive (SSD) for faster boot times and overall system responsiveness

  • A 512 GB SSD and/or additional storage for data and VMs

  • Availability of HDMI, DisplayPort, or other video outputs for multiple monitors.

  • Windows 11 or Ubuntu Linux (for advanced users). Mac is also popular for many reasons but know that you may be limited on hardware compatibility and upgradability. 

  • Two monitors or displays. It is more usable to have a second monitor to view multiple windows at the same time. 

  • Wired ethernet in addition to Wi-Fi. 

  • Upgradability – Ensure the power supply unit (PSU) is sufficient for the components and consider whether you can upgrade other components such as RAM or storage.
