  • 1.
    You're an Ambitious 9-to-5er!
    You’re ready for a full-time, on-site career...if only you could figure out what path is right for you! You envision a bright, lucrative future ahead of you (complete with corner office, maybe?), and you’re ready to invest some time in learning the skills you’ll need to succeed.
  • 2.
    You're a Conscious Coordinator!
    You’re organized but frugal; you probably know your bank account balance down to the penny! You’re considering a change to your work arrangement to increase your paycheck (or even getting back to work to add a second income to your household), but you’re very concerned about the investment it might take to get to that point.
  • 3.
    You're a Go-Getter!
    You’re already busy enough as it is—just not doing the right kind of work or making the right amount of money. You’re looking for a full-time, on-site career that earns you the respect you deserve. Let’s face it: you need an upgrade.
  • 4.
    You're a Pragmatic Professional!  
    You want a full-time, on-site career—one that will be a fulfilling, lucrative way to grow with a great company. Tech careers are lucrative and in high demand. On top of a lot of the perks that come with working in tech spaces (office dogs, gym memberships, the bottomless candy bowl), the job security that tech skills offer is money in the bank.
  • 5.
    You're a Freelance Hero!
    With more small businesses needing websites, you’re ready to be the boss, pick your own clients, and set your own rates. No more working for peanuts on someone else’s time! Instead, how about choosing where, when, and even if you work (and for how much!) every single day. If this sounds like you, then launching a freelance career in tech is one of the best choices you can make.
