What percentage of Jax Code Academy graduates get jobs?
Other bootcamps boast high job placement rates which we think are misleading. Some of our graduates don't apply for jobs but choose to start their own business, choose another career path, go to college, take the course to develop websites for their own business, etc. If you want a job as a web developer you have to put in effort, be determined, and you will be successful.
