At Juno, we’re known for delivering some of the best learning experiences in the industry, with proven results in the shortest amount of time, student-friendly payment options, and a welcoming and inclusive community. Our award-winning Web Development Immersive Bootcamp has helped over 900 graduates launch rewarding careers in tech, and now that our courses are offered Live Online, we couldn’t be more thrilled to watch our community grow. But, believe it or not, our Live Online courses aren’t the only thing that’s new this year. A key ingredient in our recipe to success is our dedication to experimenting and improving. We’re always working to combine evolving industry standards and best practices with feedback from our students, alumni, and industry partners, in order to implement program updates that set our students up for success.
So, what’s new? We have 5 exciting updates coming soon to our Bootcamp program:
Boosted Career Services To Help You Succeed
Our Career Services Team is one of the best and most dedicated in the industry! We’re updating our Career Services curriculum to create an even smoother transition for our students from Bootcamp to their job search, including increased workshops and lessons with Career Services throughout the program. We’ve also added an additional Career Success Specialist to our team, who will work closely with our graduates during their job search, meeting with them one-on-one on a weekly basis, providing resume, cover letter, and career advice, and ensuring every graduate has the tools they need to land an awesome job after Bootcamp. They will also work with our Director of Outcomes to further facilitate and develop the Career Services curriculum.
Curriculum Updates To Better Reflect Current Market Needs
In addition to these curriculum updates, we’ll also be providing additional student support with a focus on building good self care habits, access to mental health resources, and additional issue/conflict resolution support. Keep an eye out for our updated Bootcamp Course Package soon for more details!
Increased Student Support With A New Full-Time Teaching Assistant
We’re adding a full-time Teaching Assistant to the Juno Team! The TA will be in charge of marking student projects throughout Bootcamp and providing technical feedback. They will also support in-class project work time, maintain lesson notes, and answer student questions. This increased class support from the TA will free up our instructors to have more one-on-one time with our students to ensure that they are getting the help they need to succeed in the program.
A More Streamlined and Accessible Admissions Process
As Juno has grown over the years, our Admissions process has, too. In the past, we’ve had our Founder and CEO Heather Payne personally interview each applicant in person, we’ve had group interviews where applicants meet one another and the whole Juno team, and we’ve had admissions handled by a few different staff members. Earlier this year, it became clear that rolling acceptances to our Bootcamp worked best for our community, and that we needed a single owner of Juno’s Bootcamp Admissions to oversee the process and provide support for our applicants.
We hired an Admissions Coordinator in June 2020, and also embarked on a refresh of Juno's Admissions process, to make it more clear, fair, and efficient. For example, we’ve adjusted our week-long technical challenge to an online Technical Assessment that takes 1.5-2 hours to complete. We’ve also reviewed our interview process to be more approachable: instead of having applicants take pre-recorded videos through the Kira platform, now our Admissions Coordinator conducts interviews over Zoom with all successful applicants. Stay tuned for a post from our Admissions Coordinator outlining this process step by step!
We hope these changes will make your journey into tech with us better than ever! We care deeply about ensuring our programs are accessible and welcoming to people of all backgrounds. We want Juno to be a place where everyone can feel like they belong, and where everyone can succeed - especially those from groups underrepresented in tech. We'll continue to evaluate our processes, curriculum, and support services with this lens to ensure we are achieving these goals.
