Career support primarily occurs during a dedicated Career Week that begins right after each bootcamp ends. This additional week, included in the tuition, provides students with laser-focused attention from Career Advisors while they immerse in career-focused workshops, employer panels, and mock technical interviews. Graduates leave qualified for data science and analytics roles. As always, Metis provides graduates access to alumni resources and career support until they’re hired. The Metis hiring network is over 200 companies strong, including Facebook, Amazon, and Capital One.

To apply for the Metis Data Science & Analytics Bootcamps, applicants need to have experience with programming and statistics. Prior to starting the program, students must complete 36 hours of academic pre-work. Metis offers a free, self-paced Admissions Prep platform for those who need to brush up on their linear algebra, calculus, probability, statistics, and Python skills, in addition to part-time, online Bootcamp Prep Courses. Metis is looking for students eager to get their hands dirty by learning new technologies and solving real-life problems, and who have the skills needed to secure entry-level jobs in the Data Science & Analytics field.

For students looking to gain in-demand data science and analytics skills on a tighter timeline, Metis also offers Short Immersive Courses. Each lasts two-to-four weeks and enables students to learn from elite instructors in a unique format that culminates in an end-to-end project they can add to their professional portfolio. If you’re curious about the bootcamp experience, these short immersive courses are a great way to experience how it all operates. Students learn in the same formats taught by the same incredible instructors who teach the bootcamps.

Students who apply by May 17 and enroll by June 4 will receive 30% reduced tuition on one of the Online Flex bootcamp programs.

"Superb learning experience. But career services need a MAJOR rethink."

I’ll start with the pros. I fell in love with Metis during the bootcamp. Perhaps the most life-changing learning experience that was brought about in such a short time. Yes, it’s intense and probably not for everyone. But it struck the right balance between... Read More

Official Response from Metis

Thank you for your candid feedback. While we are delighted that you called it “perhaps the most life-changing learning experience” you’ve had in such a short time, we take your constructive feedback very seriously. We would like to share some additional... Read More

Our growing alumni base is one of our proudest accomplishments. Having successfully placed Data Scientists in roles since 2014, we now have a graduate community of more than 1,200 alumni, including roughly 250 graduates that directly hire or strongly influence hiring decisions at their companies.

In fact, since the beginning of the year, alumni and Metis hiring partners have posted more than 80 open jobs in our private Metis Jobs Slack channel; the majority of these are entry-level data science and analytics roles. Not to mention the new roles posted in MADE, our internal platform for jobs specially curated for our recent graduates. While some descriptions may say 4-5 years of experience, the jobs posted on the platform have been vetted by a Metis career advisor. In many cases, these opportunities have been posted by an advisor after speaking directly with the company and learning that the company would consider recent graduates of Metis in their search. We encourage graduates who are unsure if they should apply to a particular job to reach out to their advisor to discuss.

You are absolutely right that securing employment has become more challenging in the face of COVID-19 for all bootcamp and college graduates. We are fully committed to helping all of our alumni be successful in this area. We welcome all feedback and look for opportunities to improve, so if you have any other input please feel free to reach out to the Metis career support team. Again, we want to help you succeed. We’re here for you.

"Metis gave me all the tools necessary to snag a competitive job as a Data Analyst!"

In February 2020, I was a full-time career musician who didn't even know what Python was, let alone how to create neural networks and algorithms using it. On year later, I received a full-time job offer as a Data Analyst (while in the interview process... Read More

"A formerly fantastic program punctuated with really terrible post-grad support"

Metis has (or had) a really solid curriculum. I qualify this statement because the entire organization changed its focuses in December of 2020, breaking up the curriculum into a bunch of little bits. The instructors I had were supportive and knowledgeable,... Read More

Thank you for your candid feedback. We are very sorry to hear your reflection on your experience. We would like to share some additional perspective for you and for others who may read your review in the future.

To be clear, Metis’s accreditation was never... Read More

We are committed to providing fantastic programs with extremely dedicated instructors and career advisors whether or not the program is accredited; in fact, we now offer four bootcamps with specializations instead of just one, in addition to seven short immersive courses. The curriculum was updated by our in-house team of data scientists in line with learning science best practices.

Finally, we’d like to address your comments on career support. You are absolutely right that job placement has become more challenging in the face of COVID-19, but this is not unique to Metis. Every bootcamp contends with the same job market, and there is ample evidence that the data science and analytics job market has already begun to bounce back and will continue to grow.

In the meantime, our career advisors have been going above and beyond to support students and graduates as they enter the job market. Graduates can schedule weekly check-ins, or at the frequency of their choosing, which include job search strategy deep dives, hour-long individual mock interviews, additional resume and LinkedIn review, cover letter review and edits if applicable, and salary negotiations. In addition, graduates get access to Metis’s alumni resource folder that includes videos of data science talks from industry professionals and working alumni, interview preparation resources, career workshop slide decks and recorded videos on a variety of job searching topics. We invite you to reach out to your Metis Career Advisor if you’d like to take advantage of any of these resources.

"Let's just say, I wouldn't be where I am now without Metis."

The course was intense, up-to-date and very relevant to what you'll experience in the job. You can see the amount of time and effort Metis has taken to properly curate the curriculum. Even though the curriculum itself was great, it wouldn't be anything if it weren't for the teachers and staff. They made sure to help you in every step of the journey. A big thanks to them.

The curriculum is thorough and the standards are high, but the instructors, teaching assistants, and your peers are there to support you throughout the program. This program is what you make of it, so if you put in the motivation, effort, and positivity, you will reap the same in kind.
