Recent university graduates are turning to bootcamps to grow their skills in some of the most in-demand areas of tech, and to do it fast. Private training companies offer bootcamps to people with no previous experience or education in IT or computer science, and graduates have been very successful when it comes to finding work in their new fields, be it coding, UX (user experience), data analytics, or cybersecurity. The average starting salary for bootcamp graduates in North America is $69,079, according to Course Report.
