Smart decisions happen early. How many mid-career professionals look back and wonder if MAYBE they should have taken a different career path? If you’re not thoughtful and have an eye on the big picture, you can easily find yourself in a career that doesn’t provide financially or give you the opportunity for personal and professional growth (hello all my fellow broadcast journalism majors!) For young professionals looking at the bigger picture and wanting more, Green Fox Academy’s junior developer program makes a lot of sense.
Begun in 2015 in Hungary, Green Fox’s founders created an intensive four month junior developer course whose now 440+ graduates have gone onto successful careers in IT. But, their course isn’t geared for people half-heartedly considering a career change. The admissions process is an intense 5-step process that whittles down the application pool to a highly driven and ambitions group of students. But, for those willing to work hard the rewards are great. Green Fox Academy does everything in their power to ensure their graduates’ success, from Tech Talent Speed Date where companies vie for talent, to Open Demo where companies come to view presentations of Green Fox’s student projects.
Green Fox’s four month full-time course (Monday – Friday, 9am to 6pm) runs approximately 4400USD, which is far less than similar programs in the US and UK. Plus, Green Fox Academy offers three payment options depending on student need and has created the opportunity for scholarships. Their program is definitely worth looking into, especially if you’re willing to work hard and take full advantage of their program and post-graduate services. The next available course is September 2019, with applications due May 31. See their website for more information on their course, fees, and application process.G
