So what is this?
There is a group of bootcamps that, biyearly, report their results in a mutually agreed upon format. These are the results reported by that set of bootcamps from the first half of 2018.
- 79.3% of graduates get jobs
- 76.9% of attendees graduate
- 60.7% of attendees get jobs
Some bootcamps part ways with underperforming students prior to graduation to ensure their graduate employment rates are reflective of results for people who have mastered their curriculum.
Employment includes full time work, part time work, contract work, and internships as its used here.
If you see a really low graduation rate, it's likely for an online program.
The presence of online programs in this data drags down the quoted averages.
A program's employment rate reflects the number of graduates that are employed 6 months after having completed the program. This is because it often takes bootcamp graduates 3-6 months to find a job.
In general, companies tend to share good news when they have it and keep quiet about bad news. By virtue of the fact that they're getting reported, it's likely that these results are better than average.
