Higher wages in under two years

Those entering the IT sector are advancing at a fast pace in their careers after completing a bootcamp, our survey shows. Most students who have successfully completed a bootcamp, are already in a mid-level position after their second year in the IT profession, reaching a senior position with 3-5 years of experience.

At the same time, their monthly income is growing dynamically, participants of our survey earn an average net 290,000 HUF per month in their first job after training, which exceeds 500,000 HUF monthly net income by their third year. According to the alumni research, the average salary of graduates with 3 years of experience is 562,000 HUF net, which translates to a 845,000 HUF gross earning.

No prior training is required

The survey found that one in four respondents originally had an ecomomics degree, followed by ones in engineering and human studies. The proportion of career changers arriving from services, education, science and health care sectors is also significant.

Participants of the survey had an average of 6,5 years of work experience before deciding to switch to an IT career with the help from Green Fox Academy. Prior to the training, most of them worked in tourism and catering, followed by education, research and science, as well as finance, banking and insurance sectors.

„Since 2016, a total of 800 IT professionals have completed our junior programming courses in Hungary. In our alumni research we have conducted with them, we were interested in whether the opportunities actually available on the labor market justified their previous expectations. We are constantly updating and developing our trainings, responding to the continuous development of technology and the needs of companies. The survey proved that the program we compiled provides competitive knowledge and that career changers interested in the IT profession can take adventage of real labor market opportunities”

- said Anita Fachs, Country Manager of Green Fox Academy in Hungary.
