Shortly after attending the Bootcamp, a friend forwarded to me an ad for an almost perfect job in industry. Using the skills I learned in the Bootcamp to identify the critical competencies described in the ad, I sent off a vastly improved cover letter and the hiring manager responded immediately to schedule a phone interview. Prior to the phone and group interviews, I found myself going back to the Bootcamp materials to review the rules and protocols espoused by the Bootcamp leaders. I was also better prepared for the business aspects of the interview, having learned some of the business jargon, perspectives, and expectations. Overall, I found the Bootcamp enjoyable and worthwhile!
