Galvanize is committed to creating opportunities for Veterans to gain the skills and knowledge they need to enter the tech industry after service to their country. As Veterans Day approaches, we’ll be chronicling the stories and successes of several of our student veterans.
After returning home from deployment, these students wanted to develop a skillset that made it possible to move into to a rewarding, full-time career. With Galvanize’s Web Development and Data Science Immersive programs, they found the perfect fit.
“I think a lot of veterans feel similar when they get out of the military. They have experienced camaraderie in the armed forces that they really miss when they get out: The fact that you’re always part of a tight-knit community, that there are always people to your left and your right that you can rely on. I really appreciate that Galvanize has a really similar type of community.”
–Allen Fordham, Army Veteran and current Galvanize Web Development student
As the tech boom continues, web developers and data scientists have become some of the most sought-after employees in the market. Galvanize students gain the skills to break into this cutting-edge field and hit the ground running at some of the world’s most innovative companies.
During the month of November we with be hosting and participating in a number of events across Galvanize campuses. We encourage you to join us and learn more about opportunities in tech.
