Have you heard about the “talent gap” for programmers?
According to Code.org, there are 586,107 job opening for programmers in the United States. Employers are hungry to hire entry-level and seasoned coders, but they can’t find the right people.
Why is that happening?
- Sometimes you have long experience but you don’t know the specific programming language or framework that your target job uses.
- Or sometimes you don’t have professional experience, but you do have the right education, either from a university or by teaching yourself. Your roadblock may be a lack of a solid portfolio to show an employer during a technical interview.
In any case, the result is pretty depressing. You want a new job and there are dozens of positions in your area that would be a good fit for you. But there’s an invisible wall that’s stopping you from making a leap in your career.
That why we created the Coder Foundry “New Job” Roadmap.
Our founder, Bobby Davis, is a programmer turned serial entrepreneur. He runs three growing companies and has to hire new coders all of the time. He’s been on both sides of the interview table, so he knows every hidden bug that kills the job hunt before it even starts.
Bobby is a on a mission to help programmers like you find a new job, fast. He created Coder Foundry, a programming language bootcamp in North Carolina. We equip you with the skills you need to attract and secure a high-paying job as a web and software developer.
It doesn’t matter if you have 15 years under your belt but you’re having a hard time landing a new position that's worth your experience.
And you shouldn't count yourself out if you only tinker on the side and have never held a professional programming job.
There’s a growing job market out there for all skill levels, and the same kinds of mistakes are holding back veterans and newcomers. If you just knew how successful programmers make progress in their careers you can do the same for yourself.
In this series The Coder Foundry team will show you:
- Why "what language should I learn?" is the wrong question to start with if you want a high-paying job as a programmer
- The Loner Complex that slows down learning a new coding language.
- The biggest blunders that sink your technical interview
- The must-haves for your portfolio, and what to do if you don't have a solid portfolio
