I previously was in the digital marketing field and part of my job included working with a web developer who helped me design landing pages for clients. I was very interested in her work, so I took some online [intro] to HTML/CSS courses. I then decided to take a more serious step in learning to code by attending the [boot camp].

It has totally changed the way I think about problem solving, and made me feel more excited about my career/future to have this awesome skillset. I was totally ignorant to the tech world before the program and now I understand how so many things work. Learning to code has opened up so many doors and has made me very excited for the future.

As we may remember the year of 2020, we all were challenged to change and grow. Some of us choose to take this time to reflective on your purpose. I decided to start a data analyst boot camp and was overwhelmed from the feedback of YouTube and numerous boot camps platforms. Some say you can learn these topics without the challenge of a boot camp, well nothing prepares you for the role of a data scientist then to be held accountable.

John Hopkins University is as leading institution in the DMV. I received [a] unique teaching and mentorship that was beyond expectations. The professor Soheil Hosseini currently works as a data scientist and was more than excited to teach various topics with strength and leadership. He taught an engaging Zoom based class with integrity and creditability. I remember one class on JavaScript were he would ask the class what a line of code meant and patiently waited for an answer. My experience was not a regurgitated Google searches, but helped mold my thinking as a programmer. There were times when I had to process documentation and Soheil was able and willing to provide context.

In addition, the TA Jurgen Arias assisted the class with first hand computer software knowledge and YouTube videos that helped me as a student learn the value of data. Throughout this course that I wanted to give up; Jurgen was a leading mentor to motivate and help me succeed. This boot camp journey was just a beginning of my data scientist career. The people I’ve met, such as Gemini Stanford , the student success manager, represented John Hopkins with upmost diligence and service before self leadership. I feel as if I can always reach out and ask for help even though the course is finished.

Where we are currently with data is only the beginning and the amount of effort you put into this course has to be something worth it. This course will challenge you to think outside-the-box. Take a stride into the unknown with John Hopkins Data Analytics Boot Camp you will not be disappointed.

I participated in the Johns Hopkins Data Analytics and Visualization Boot Camp from July 2020 – Jan 2021. My instructor was Soheil, my TA was Jurgen, and my student support manager was Gemini. I mention these names because my experience would not have been profitable if it was not for their incredible support and hard work. The instructor and TA were always ready to help and be a resource. Gemini consistently had a positive attitude, always encouraged us, and made us believe we can make it through. The topics covered in the course were very practical and transferable to getting a job. I’m glad I took the boot camp as [it] equipped me with the necessary skills to pivot my career toward Data Analytics. I was able to participate in multiple interviews before ending the course and received two job offers. My situation may not be the typical result but the opportunity the boot camp provides is second to none. Make your complete your first two career services assignment. Doing allowed me to have a presentable resume for employers. It is costly, so only do it if you are ready to commit yourself to the work. You will receive support if you pursue it. The career help part of the program seem to be helpful as well. I didn’t get o explore it since I received a job offer before the course was over. But do take advantage of it and also participate in the non required career events like resume workshop, interview prep, salary negotiations and others. I hope your experience is as good and beneficial as mine. Many thanks for Soheil, Jurgen, and Gemini.
