FAQs

V How do I apply?

Head to www.devmountain.com/apply and select the course and start date of your choice. You will be prompted to:
  1. Create a DevMountain.com account with a name, email, and password.
  2. Fill out a simple online form which will start the application process.
Once that form is submitted, our admissions team will contact you and guide you through everything. It is easy.

V What happens when I hit the "submit" button on my application?

Our application process has 3 simples parts:
  1. Submitting an online application.
  2. A phone or video chat interview with one of our admission team members.
  3. A pre-course challenge to measure your competency. Don't worry, we enroll people who are at ground zero.
Your assigned admissions team member will schedule a time for an interview to talk. Once the interview is complete, you will be sent the pre-course challenge. The challenge must be completed and reviewed. When the review is complete, a final decision is made. We hope to see you in class!

V How many people are typically in a class?

We typically keep our classes between 20-30 people. DevMountain has come to find that anything over 30 people takes away from learning, and anything less than 20 takes away from peer-to-peer learning and groups. We have found that 20-30 is the sweet spot.

V Will DevMountain help me find a job afterwards?

DevMountain simply can not guarantee jobs upon completion of the course. Why? Because it is up to you what you do with the education you are given. DevMountain works hard to help you. We do a number of things to help graduates of our immersive programs find jobs afterwards:
  1. In class training on networking, resumes, interviews, portfolio websites, LinkedIn, etc.
  2. Guidance on portfolio projects.
  3. Hiring events which we call 'Meet and Hire' lunches. DevMountain brings in employers to network, build relationships and of course hire. Contact Info of each company in attendance is shared with students.
  4. One on one help in creating a post graduation job hunt plan.
  5. One on one post graduation help upon request - Resumes, LinkedIn, and portfolio site critique and help.
  6. We maintain a very regularly posted digital job board. Most of which are employers DevMountain has a relationship with.
  7. Saturday Job Prep Workshops (about every 7 weeks) for Alumni and current students with Tech Recruiters and one on one feedback.
Our graduates will end up in a variety of positions ranging from internships up to full on Jr Developer positions. The number and kinds of opportunities that will open themselves to graduates will largely depend on what each student has put into the course.
