Have you ever wondered what the admissions process is like at Alchemy Code Lab? What does Alchemy look for in a prospective student? We sat down with Alchemy’s School Director, Megan Nelson, and asked a few questions to provide context on admissions.
What is Alchemy about?
Alchemy is a fully immersive program designed to train you like you are already on the job. You are trained by our extensively experienced industry instructors. You are also supported by our Teaching Assistants. Alchemy was created by hiring managers to fill a need in the industry for well trained talent ready to contribute. Typical bootcamps graze the surface of many technologies just enough to get a “foot in the door.” Alchemy prepares you by deep diving into a full tech stack. People who go through this program acquire both the technical skills and professional competencies of experienced developers prior to graduation. We skip the need for simple ‘bootcamp internships’ and provide companies with talent who are industry-ready. (See our coding bootcamp graduate results.)
