Our boot camp also teaches graduates how to perform in a professional environment through a robust professional development curriculum. Our hands-on, project-based curriculum includes exercises that teach professionalism, high energy, confidence, self-management and intellectual curiosity (the top five characteristics that over 1,200 hiring managers worldwide desire according to a Universum study conducted in 2012). We do this by teaching about personal branding, emotional intelligence, how to communicate professionally in order help them best interview for tech jobs.

I was able to forge my own road with SeedPaths. I really became interested in Database Management and SeedPaths helped me learn more about that during my program. The professional development side of this program is awesome as well. Even though I am not currently working in the IT field after the program. I am able to use the skills that I have learned to use in my current position where I am relied upon heavily to problem solve. They were really supportive with helping me find a job after the program was over as well.
