The 10 in-Demand software development skills for 2014 include all of the web development technologies covered in the RockIT program:
The Bureau of Labor Statistics states, ‘Employment of web developers is projected to grow 20 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations.’
Informal drop‐in sessions with local employers are included in the program. Employers come to talk to students about job opportunities and provide expert advice and interview process tips. Students have the opportunity to meet and build relationships with employers to expand their professional network.
Along with teaching you coding skills, RockIT prepares you for the real world. The curriculum includes job searching skills, resume building, technical coding tests and a mock interview day to add to the body of web development skills you have learned.
The last week of the Bootcamp includes a final project read out to a panel of industry experts. Following the read out we hold a career fair where companies set up shop and interview students for potential job openings.
RockIT labs offers our alumni the opportunity to keep learning. You will continue to work on real world projects to expand your portfolio.
