It is the mission of The Job Hackers to provide individuals with the knowledge and experience needed to navigate the complex world of knowledge work. We do this by not only giving our participants valuable knowledge about software development to prepare them for real-world jobs, but working with them and employers to ensure the proper placement of the participants. We believe in the power of proper education to imbue its participants with skills the market is happy to pay for. It is because of this the education given to people in transition is without cost. The Job Hackers model is to not receive compensation for their valuable training until our participants are placed in a job matching their training.
