“I finished architecture school this past semester and, due to COVID, no longer had a job lined up for when I graduated. I found a job, but the job required some Python knowledge, so I enrolled and completed the course between my first and second interviews. Coming into the second interview with this knowledge put me miles ahead of the other candidates and eventually secured me my new job! Thanks!”

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I land a real-world job?


It’s not uncommon for Codecademy learners to land web development jobs within 6 months. You can find how and read more in-depth success stories in the community forums.

What if I don’t have a Computer Science degree?


Having a degree related to Computer Science or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) helps, but it is not an absolute requirement in most Computer Science fields. It is no longer rare that developers have an unrelated degree or no degree at all, and the number of such developers continues to grow.


However, to enter and succeed in the field without a Computer Science degree, it is important to make sure you learn all the important concepts that would have been covered in the degree and are required for the job. In addition, it can be helpful to make projects, contribute to open source projects, join hackathons, and network with others in the field.
