Qwasar Alumni & Testimonials

Giving you an insight into where learners end up, career paths, and what learners are saying about our programs.

Our Online Learning Community

Ongoing Success and Recruitment

Qwasar began programs at the end of 2019. Since our programs take 9-24 months to complete, we’re at the tip of the iceberg for learner success and recruitment. Some of our learners have already been recruited.

As of June 2022, our success rate is 95+% for learners who complete (or mostly complete) our programs. This rate has held solid for 18 months. Projects are hard work, but the hard work pays off.

We will continue to update this page through the year and share insights on who gains employment, where, and in what job.

We Also Have 35+ Entrepreneurs in the Community

Did you know that across the Qwasar community, we have over 35 entrepreneurs who have started or are building their own companies?

Learners use their software and programming skills and are building everything from accounting software to software to run a music shop!

Did You Know?

Other programs announce employment rates for within 9-12 months’ of graduating. That means you spend 3 months learning and 9 looking for a job on your own. What an awful approach.

Our employment rates are within 6 weeks of graduating. Most get employed before they finish our programs.

Also, other programs that have placed people into “Senior Software Engineer” positions don’t tell you that those candidates were already software engineers beforehand.

Unlike them, our employment rates aren’t based around people who were previously already in industry!

Previous Alumni From Other Programs We Built

Qwasar founders launched 42 Silicon Valley in 2016, and within a few years, learners saw significant success in their careers. We’re proud of the work there and are excited to continue building next generation programs here at Qwasar. Our learning methods and the technical standards that we demand from our learners truly trains to a high level. Here are where some of 42’s learners are now (the 42 Fremont campus closed in November 2020).

The majority of learners did not have a Computer Science degree or a technical background. This means that we are good at helping you with long-term career success due to strong technical foundations (our programs are tough but worth it).
