When we speak with prospective students, many of them let us know that, aside from our rigorous curriculum, our job Placement Office is one of the main draws to our program. Undeniably, it is a great asset. Employers regularly visit our facility and have the opportunity to interview multiple students in the same day, often filling one or more of their job openings before they have even left the premises.
One of the things that we're most proud of at Coder Foundry is our unique ability to place our students into high quality jobs upon successful completion of our program. How do we manage to do that? Our office of Partnership Development (headed by Director, T. J. Jones) works with students throughout the course of their time at Coder Foundry, assessing their skills and matching them with interviews that suit their abilities and preferences.
