Optional: Build Challenge (4 weeks)

In order to participate in one of the Bridge programs, you first need to either a) demonstrate basic competence in the required track skills through a previous project or b) join our monthly build challenge.

Phase 1 (Weeks 1-8): Project Phase & Personal Mentorship

For this phase you'll be matched with a personal mentor who will provide you feedback on your project. The project will map to the new skills you've acquired and would like to take to the next level.

Phase 2 (Weeks 8-12): Interview Prep & Interviews

During this phase you'll run practice interviews and challenges and get feedback. You'll also be connected with companies to interview with based on your target job title. You may repeat this phase as much as you need to before receiving offers.

Optional: Onboarding Bootcamp

Some employers may opt to have you enter a special on-boarding bootcamp where you will learn the specifics of your new employer's tech stack from top to bottom so you can hit the ground running. This phase is optional and is required by some employers and not others.

Optional: Post-Grad Apprenticeship

We also offer an optional 3-9 month long paid apprenticeship program through one of our network of hiring partners. Apprenticeships pay cost-of-living stipends and can be a good bridge into your new career.
