About Rithm school’s corporate training program

Best place to transition industries! Overall, I am grateful for the knowledge and experience I gained during my time at Rithm School, and highly recommend the program to anyone interested in pursuing a career in software engineering.

Rithm School delivered on everything it promised: small classes, personalized attention, regular 1:1 meetings, knowledgeable and passionate instructors, positive learning environment, solid coursework and a TON of job assistance support during and after graduation. I learned so much, faster and better than I would have on my own. I gained a lot of confidence in my abilities. I made great friends with peers and alumni. And I was wonderfully prepared for my job interviews and ready to ace them, despite the current difficult job market.

I had such an incredible experience at Rithm. I was initially drawn to smaller class sizes (and the opportunity to learn a second back-end language, which proved VERY useful in the job search), and it did not disappoint. It’s equal parts rigorous, engaging, and dare I say fun. It’s clear that their focus is on you as the student, not on their graduation/employment stats or anything else superfluous – they’ve created an incredible formula where taking care of the former leads to the latter, and I’d go back in a heartbeat.

Best decision I’ve made! I do a lot of research on Course Report and Reddit to help decide which school would debt he best fit for me. I’m so happy that I ended up choosing Rithm! A few of my favorite things are the M-F classes, the professional project, small class sizes, and daily code reviews. Overall I’m super happy with my decision and would recommend it to anyone that is on the fence!

The single best thing about Rithm is the instructors.  They’re super knowledgeable, patient, and willing to answer any question you have about the curriculum.  You’re matched with an instructor as your advisor, who you meet with every other week. You can definitely tell they are there to help you succeed, so never be shy about asking questions!

Rithm School was amazing! I loved the small class sizes, and their curriculum is solid. I’m a fan of how they try to keep up with industry standards with the materials they teach. Overall, it was a great program and it definitely prepared me well (especially with React) and landed me an awesome role after 3 months.
