Will I become a Data Scientist after the bootcamp?

We do not promise that with 50 hours of training you will become a “data scientist”. However, we will teach you the fundamentals of data science from predictive analytics, to data mining, to machine learning, and more. We get you started with data science in one week!

I’m looking for a career change into Data Science. Am I a good fit? Is this program right for me?

Our motto is, “data science for everyone”. We will introduce you to the fundamentals of data science from data visualization to predictive analytics, to machine learning, data mining, and more!

We have had people attend our bootcamp from over 400 companies in various industries, job titles, and functions. Our course is suitable for beginners. We have developed the course such that beginners can watch the pre-bootcamp tutorials in order to come prepared for the bootcamp.

The pre-bootcamp tutorials will familiarize you with the fundamentals of data mining, and introduce you to three data science tools: R (programming language), Azure ML, and Amazon ML. If you watch all the pre-bootcamp tutorials and quizzes, you will be well-prepared for the bootcamp. We have had attendees with diverse backgrounds from various industries who have successfully transformed their careers by learning data science.

Will I get a job after completing the bootcamp?

We cannot guarantee that you will get a job after completing the bootcamp. Obtaining a job is strictly based off one’s own skill sets.  However, we are confident that as long as you stay engaged during the bootcamp, you will be able to test those skills and apply it to your work (that is, if you would like).  Upon completion of the bootcamp, we will provide you with a certificate that you can print and/or add to your LinkedIn profile.

Our bootcamp is mostly catered to working professionals who want to add a data science skill set to their current job or project they are working on. Most come to the bootcamp with a project they are working on and want to utilize the skills they learn at the bootcamp to implement machine learning methods or deploy predictive models, etc. However, we do get a few people who are looking for a career change into data science and come to the bootcamp to kick-start their data science education, as 50 hours of training is just the beginning!

Do you offer employment assistance?

Our focus is on developing professional skills, not job placement. However, you will have great networking opportunities at the bootcamp. Our attendees work in the industry and you will have a week to get to know them well.

Are there any networking opportunities?

In addition to the 5-day training, you will have ample opportunity to network with the peers in your cohort. Prior to coming to the bootcamp, you will have access to Slack where you can meet and engage with your peers before, during, and after the bootcamp. One night during the training, you will be invited to a networking dinner where you can get to know your peers outside of class. Lastly, after the bootcamp, you will be invited to join the Data Science Dojo Alumni LinkedIn group.
