As you check out Amazon Pharmacy, know that some of that user experience was built by graduates of Lambda School. When you download MacOS Big Sur, again, some of that was built by Lambda graduates. When you unbox your PlayStation or send your next tweet, the software that makes it possible was built in part by Lambda grads, most of whom have no degree, let alone a degree in computer science. Instead, our full-time students spend 6-12 months in an intensive, hands-on experience, and for our part-time students, the program is close to two years. This ensures that they graduate ready to be effective employees right away.
And today, I’m thrilled to announce the launch of a new job placement program for these qualified, ambitious Lambda graduates: the Lambda Fellows program.
Lambda Fellows is a four-week, real-world learning experience where Lambda graduates work at a host company on a trial basis. During the fellowship, Lambda School will pay your fellow. If you decide to hire them at the end of the fellowship, you pay Lambda back. If not, you pay $0.
We’ve had over 30 students participate in the Fellows program so far. Out of those who have already completed their four-week fellowship, 43% of them have received an offer to stay at the host company.
We are launching a cohort of Lambda Fellows every Monday starting January 11th and we want to talk to as many interested companies as possible about participating! If you’re interested, we invite you to learn more about the Lambda Fellows program or schedule an introductory call with our placement team.
