My first job coming out of boot camp paid 85k. However it’s not the salary it’s the persistence in finding a job. I probably had 200 interviews before I landed my first. It’s be hard for boot camp grads sometimes to get a job. I still have classmates that still haven’t found one.

Yeah just don’t get discouraged and keep learning. I am now on my 3rd job since I graduated, and once you land that first one, the next are much easier to land. I interview at a place next week for $165k so I would prioritize experience maybe over the salary. And if you can, be open to internships, that’s what really helped me land my first. If you can just get the experience the money and jobs will come.

Short answer: the same as a college grad to start. Long answer: depends on a lot of variables. What metro area? What language and frameworks? Any tech background? Some bootcamp grads find it a little more difficult to secure interviews for entry level positions, but the picture gets more complicated as your career progresses. Bootcamp grads (in my experience) tend to have some CS theory knowledge gaps that could, but not necessarily will, impact their career at all. For all intents and purposes, you’ll have the same trajectory as a degree holder

Thank you

It really depends on so many factors. Your specific knowledge base, where you live, whether you have any internships or other experience on your resume, etc.

I live in Atlanta and it looks as if I should be looking for some internships prior to graduation.

So the bootcamp will primarily work in your favor in terms of the knowledge itself. Then the shift you're making will be like breaking into the role from the same perspective of anyone, including new grads etc. I think it's reasonable to expect that you'd be getting under $100k, but not below $65k.
