Description

Pursuit (formerly C4Q) is a New York City-based nonprofit software engineering coding bootcamp and fellowship program. Unlike many other coding bootcamps, Pursuit is a long-term program that offers more than three years of career support. The initial 12-month software engineering bootcamp covers coding in-depth, and the following 36 months include hiring assistance and continued mentorship.  Graduates of the Pursuit fellowship program and bootcamp work at over 20 major companies in the tech industry. Students must earn less than $45,000 to be admitted into the course.

Additional Info

During the full stack web development course, students learn relevant coding languages and build a web application. Students will also learn web development best practices, web development tools, and learn how to develop a resume and portfolio. Students who choose iOS development will learn Swift, data structures, and algorithms. Additionally, students will build an iOS application, learn best practices for app development, and build a resume and portfolio.  All students will receive career counseling and services to help them land a job before the initial 10 to 12-month period of the fellowship concludes.

The Pursuit software engineering course lasts for 10 to 12 months. During this time, students learn the fundamentals of software engineering and can choose to specialize in full stack web development or iOS mobile development. The specialized career track programs last 10 weeks.  At the end of the software engineering program, students will spend time to land their first tech job. After finding work, students will continue to build their coding skills through a career mentorship for an additional three years after graduation.  

Within a year, 85% of Pursuit’s initial 300 graduates found a high-paying job in the tech industry. Before attending the program, their average salary was around $18,000 annually.  After completing the fellowship, students earned an average of $85,000, which is more than three times their salary before attending the program. The cost of the program is covered through income share agreements if students earn more than $60,000. If they don’t, tuition is free. To date, students are employed at over 20 big companies. These include BuzzFeed, Kickstarter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Spotify, Capital One, Jet, iHeartRadio, IBM, and The New York Times.  

There is no upfront tuition cost for Pursuit fellowship students. Instead, the cost of the program is covered by an income share agreement. Students who graduate the program agree to pay 12% of their salary for 36 months after hiring. The minimum income cutoff for the income share agreement is $60,000 per year.  Students making less than the cutoff do not need to pay. Once students finish paying after three years, the program will be completely paid off.

    I was a full-stack well development fellow at pursuit for the 5.0 cohort. I have to say that my experience was a pleasant and growing one. Not only I learned about technical skills necessary to become a developer but I also built community of support to advance my career and passion for tech as well. It was tough 10 months but I managed to pull through with sheer grit and dedication.

    Would recommend for hard-working and motivated people who want to learn to code but can’t pay an upfront price

    This program was great for me! I learned enough about iOS to land an apprentice position. Along with this, the program helped me prepare for interviews by giving me resume and cover letter assistance, mock interviews, and DSA practice. That being said, they can only bring you so far. If you are expecting them to hand you a job (which they get as close as possible to doing with their company partnerships) then you will have a hard time getting out of your own way. If you are committed to doing your best, remembering that you are surrounded by people that want you to succeed, then you increase your chances of finding a job. If you are of the mindset that you deserve things that you have not put effort into, I suggest you look into another route to success.

    Three months after graduating from Pursuit, I was able to successfully triple my original income. After almost 2 years, I’ve successfully quadrupled my salary when compared to what I made prior to joining Pursuit! It will be a lot of work (especially on nights and weekends while working a day job), but you will learn a lot, and be prepared for your first job in tech. Totally worth it!
