Event Details

Looking to transform your career? Interested in entering the world of tech but not sure where to start? Join us for a discussion with some of our most successful graduates who will share their experiences before, during and after our Full-time Programs–moderated by our Manager of Education Experience.

BrainStation's Full-time Programs prepare you for a new career in technology. They are intensive, collaborative and rewarding learning experiences where no two days are the same. Get a chance to hear directly from our employed graduates about their journey through our program. Their stories are prime examples as to why we stand behind our student success rates (over 90% of our Full-time grads are hired within 6-months).

Discover how diverse backgrounds and a drive to learn can propel you into an exciting career in technology.
