2021 Q4 Jobs and Hiring Report

2021 ended on a high note for our graduates! We’re excited to share that our new job seekers are seeing the same steady flow of jobs as the previous few quarters, with an increase in both the median time to hire and median starting salary from Q3.

The data continues to show us that Turing grads are landing in a variety of different roles that offer them benefits, great pay, and flexibility to work from anywhere. If you’re considering a career change into tech, read on past the numbers to learn why now is the time.

The Numbers

In Q4 2021:

  • One cohort graduated for a total of 41 new alumni.
  • 61 Turing alumni accepted a job during Q4.
  • The median time to hire was 49 days from graduation, improving from 65 days the previous quarter.
  • Median starting salary of first time hires was $83,200, another increase from the previous quarter at $80,000.
  • 65% of jobs offered are fully remote.

New Year. New You.

As we move into the new year, we are looking forward to continued growth and opportunity for our grads. Will you be one of them?

Still a little unsure? It’s common for our admissions team to hear someone voice hesitation that “they aren't good with computers” or “they’ve never worked in tech.” Over the years, we’ve learned that people often opt out of becoming a software developer before they’ve even tried coding. That's why we regularly run fun, risk-free workshops so you can try coding for yourself.

Challenge Assumptions

At Turing, we work to unravel pre-programmed mindsets (like the one that says “it’s not for me,” or the assumption that coding is only for people who went to a traditional college, which stems from a society that has only ever showed us one type of person in the role). The truth is: there has never been a better time than now to become a software developer. And what does a coder look like anyway? Turns out, just like you.  

Want to get your hands on some code? Attend one of our Try Coding Workshops and see if a career change is in the cards for you this year.
