Results that matter
Epicodus's primary goal is to help people learn the skills they need to fill jobs as software developers. Throughout our full-time courses, we'll help get you prepared to look for work. After graduating from a full-time program, we'll help you find job opportunities and check in with you at least once per week until you find a job. If you take time off or your first job ends, we'll continue to support you up to a year after you graduate.

We can't guarantee when or if you'll find a job, but we will do our absolute best to help you do so.
For their final course with Epicodus, students intern with local companies.
Several times each year, Epicodus hosts a demo day where employers can see projects that students soon to graduate have built.
What we do for you
All students practice technical and non-technical interviewing so that you're ready and comfortable when the real interviews come around.
Resume and Cover letter Review
Part way through each course, students prepare resumes and cover letters, which our staff members review before the students move on to internships and job interviews.
Our staff check job boards daily to find appropriate positions for our alumni, and share them on our internal job boards. We also reach out to local companies to find jobs that aren't posted online.
Since our curriculum is based on building projects, grads have a portfolio of code ready to impress potential employers.
We know that job-hunting can be frustrating and stressful, but we'll do everything we can to help you up to actually applying for jobs!
