Are you a Juno Alum thinking about making a career change by taking our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp?

We're ready to help make it happen! Since our first cohort in 2014, our Bootcamp has helped over 700 people launch their development careers, and it's now available in a Live Online format.

Juno Student Success Consultant Stephanie Cheng has written a step-by-step guide to our admissions process for Juno Alumni, as well as some tips on how to shine through your application.

Not a Juno Alum?

How to Apply to Coding Bootcamp (for non-Juno Alumni)

STEP 1. Fill out an Online Application

The best time to apply is right now! At Juno, we operate on rolling acceptances - this means that the earlier you apply to a Bootcamp cohort, the better your chances of getting a seat! With 6 cohorts running in 2020, we have over 300 seats available to dedicated and aspiring developers.

STEP 2. Video Interview

After applying online, we'll send you a link to complete our Kira video interview, which you’ll have 3 days to complete. During the interview, you’ll watch short videos of Juno’s CEO and Founder, Heather Payne, asking a variety of questions – both oral and written.

These questions have to do with qualities we look for in a Bootcamp applicant, so bring energy and enthusiasm to your answers! There aren’t always “right” or “wrong” responses to our questions – we want to see how you think through your answers. You’ll also be asked to upload your resume so we can get a sense of your background and experience.

STEP 3. Technical Challenge

After completing your video interview, we’ll send you a link to complete the bootcamp technical challenge over a period of 7 days. You’ll be asked to replicate an image of a website using HTML & CSS, and to make it responsive.

If you are currently in our Web Development course, we typically send the tech challenge the day after your last day of class.

STEP 4. Application Review

The Juno Admissions Team will review your entire application, including your technical challenge feedback, Kira video interview, resume, and instructor feedback from your previous course(s) taken at Juno.


Possible Outcomes

You get accepted!

Yahoo, you did it! We’re so excited to have you join the Juno family! You’ll receive your offer of acceptance via phone call from a member of our Admissions Team.

You get accepted but our ISA seats are full

In 2019, Juno was the first school in Canada to offer Income Share Agreements - a program that allows our students to pay only $1 upfront, and pay us back once they are making at least $50,000 in their new career.

In 2020, we launched our Pay What You Can Income Share Agreements, a flexible option that allows students to pay as much as they'd like upfront for their Bootcamp education.

We have a limited number of ISA seats available per Bootcamp session for Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents, so this is another reason why it’s important to apply as early as you can!

In the event that you get accepted but our ISA seats are full, and this was your preferred method of payment, our team will explore other financial options with you so that you can hopefully be able to pay for Bootcamp upfront!

We recommend you (re)take a course to strengthen your technical skills

Sometimes we may find you’re a great fit for Bootcamp and that your technical challenge passed, but was not strong enough compared to other applicants. If this is the case, we might suggest you (re-)take our Web Development course, or our JavaScript course depending on your level of technical skills, to strengthen your application.

With our Lifelong Skills Guarantee you can retake a course that you’ve already taken for just $500 plus tax. This is great if you ever feel like your coding skills need brushing up or are out-of-date.

After completing the course, we would ask for feedback about you from your Instructor, and then consider your application for the next available Bootcamp cohort.

We invite you to re-apply!

If you fail your tech challenge, or if we don’t feel you’re the right fit for this cohort of students, it’s not Juno closing our doors on you forever - you’re always welcome to re-apply!

We want to see you succeed, so if you weren’t accepted we’re always happy to offer feedback or recommendations so that you can improve your application for the next Bootcamp cohort!

In general, we recommend applying again once you’ve made progress - this likely means improving your coding skills with our Web Development or our JavaScript course. And remember, as an added bonus, you get an extra $1,000 off the price of the Bootcamp per Juno course you take beforehand!

The biggest advice from Juno’s Student Success Consultants:

Apply as early as possible to improve your chances of getting a spot! Most importantly, remember - we’ve got you. If you’re meant for Bootcamp, we’re not going to give up on you, and we’re going to figure out the best way to help you live out your dream of becoming a Web Developer!
