How coding boot camp can lead to new career path with a tech job

  • Tech coding boot camps typically provide a shorter route than taking full-time college courses.
  • The average employment rate for boot camp grads at five of the biggest tech companies was around 6%.
  • A recent study by the CIRR said about 71% of coding boot camp graduates found jobs within 180 days.

These were Annie Cochran’s jobs to pay her bills a year ago: Freelance graphic designer. Contractor. Model and whiskey sales representative.

She ditched those gigs to pursue a career in tech. Now Cochran, who lives in Cincinnati, leads a team of software engineers to ensure online deliveries go smoothly for the Kroger grocery chain.
