Today, many of us young adults feel disheartened by the poor salary prospects in our field of interest. This is especially disappointing given the large financial investment we make at university.
To compound our financial stresses, the transition from university to the workforce is difficult. We find many skills learnt in college are non-transferable to the real-world workplace. Crippling student debt forces us to opt for jobs which help pay bills, but for which we did not attend college. In addition, to meet our budget, most of us have to work multiple part-time and full-time jobs. In summary there is a huge financial bubble with colleges where a college degree feels required in order to enter adulthood yet the salary benefits of a bachelors degree often do not outweigh the financial debts of the education.
Deep Dive Academy is here to help graduates feel satisfied and become financially independent after college graduation. We realize the great achievement students have accomplished by graduating college and the economic gaps in place stopping us from realizing our adult ambitions. Deep Dive Academy is passionate about getting educated young adults set up in industries and positions in which they are able to pay off their student debt within 5 years of graduation and maintain an independent lifestyle. We’ve chosen to focus on the technology sector as it is the fastest growing sector, allows for reliable work-from-home & continues to hire even during COVID-19. We help new graduates specialize in full stack development, or in layman’s terms, website development. Businesses of all industries need to have at least one full stack developer. Therefore students of all majors will be able to find work in their field of interest. Therefore students can remain in the line of work they are interested in.
Not all college graduates should become software developers. It takes an entrepreneurial spirit, deep ambition and dedication to have success as a full stack coder. Often there is no one right way to do things. These jobs require creativity and autonomy. Not everyone is cut out for the nuances & self-motivation software coding requires. And that is okay. However, highly educated individuals willing to work hard, initiate their own learning and collaborate with mentors and peers should excel as coders.
