It’s been a whirlwind few months — working remotely has greatly accelerated our use of technology, forcing even the most traditional brands to become more tech-savvy. We’ve all felt the impact of this new digital-first world, and brands are keen to adopt the right technology to uphold a delightful consumer experience.

This rapid transformation has made digital skills especially relevant, increasing demand for jobs in data, design, and development.

BrainStation’s coding bootcamp and programs in data, digital marketing, and design can set you on the path to a new career within 12 weeks. You may even be eligible for one of the many scholarships BrainStation offers to make training programs more accessible during these challenging times.

Here’s a glimpse at some of the exciting future-proof positions you could be equipped for after graduation.

Data Scientist

What does a Data Scientist do, you might ask? The short answer is that they help companies make sense of data so that it can be actioned in meaningful ways. Much of the role includes collecting, analyzing, and reporting on data and statistics. According to LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs Report, Data Scientist roles have increased by 650% in the last decade and, according to one estimate, demand for data science skills is projected to increase by 37% year over year.

BrainStation offers a Data Science bootcamp that can help you prepare for these exciting career opportunities. The full-time immersive and project-based online data bootcamp is designed to transform your skillset, and give you the confidence you need to dive into your next career move.

Digital Marketing Specialist

According to Hubspot, 70% of companies now actively invest in content marketing — and 74% in social marketing — with well over half calling content marketing “very important” or “extremely important” to their overall strategy. All to say, digital marketing skills are becoming increasingly important in the online-first COVID era.

BrainStation’s Digital Marketing bootcamp is designed to prepare you for a career in digital marketing. Within 12 weeks, you’ll learn how to develop a holistic digital strategy, all while gaining first-hand experience with search engine optimization, paid ads and search engine marketing, email marketing development, social media, and analytics.

Data Analyst

BrainStation’s Data Science bootcamp can also be an entry point into a lucrative career as a Data Analyst. Similar to a Data Scientist role, a Data Analyst is tasked with collecting data and finding pertinent patterns and trends, often with a much narrower business intelligence focus. 

Data analytics can be considered a more entry-level field than data science, with endless opportunities for growth. IBM predicted that the number of jobs for data professionals in the US alone would grow by another 364,000 (to nearly 3 million) before the end of 2020.

By completing BrainStation’s Data Science bootcamp, you’ll walk away with the skills needed to organize large quantities of data and conduct high-quality analysis using a range of industry techniques. Not to mention you’ll graduate armed with a portfolio of completed projects to present during your job search.

UX Designer

Know that feeling when you go onto a website and have a seamless experience from start to finish? That’s because a UX Designer has created an intuitive and user-friendly framework for you to navigate.

If that sounds up your alley, attending BrainStation’s UX Design bootcamp can help you launch a new career in design – and there are plenty of career opportunities in UX design to be had. In fact, in a recent survey, 87% of hiring managers said that acquiring UX Designers is a top priority. Job site Indeed, meanwhile, recently ranked UX Designer as the fifth most in-demand role in tech.  

BrainStation’s UX Design bootcamp provides a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and portfolio needed to jump right into a career in design.

Being a Full-Stack Web Developer means being proficient in front- and back-end website coding. These skills are at the core of creating functional websites and mobile platforms.

Now more than ever, these skills are also in great demand. In fact, it’s the most in-demand job title in tech, not to mention it’s one of the top-paying roles. The market for Web Developers is expected to grow 15% over the next two years. 

Led by educators that are experienced in the field, BrainStation’s Web Development bootcamp is designed to prepare graduates for a career in development. The program is project-based, ensuring students gain first-hand experience with different development tools and techniques, all while building a portfolio of completed work.
