Testimonials
A top-notch, tech training program

“School16 is a top-notch training program to accelerate your career in tech. The instructors had diverse experience working at small start-ups as well as larger companies like Google, Amazon, and Salesforce.  With the program, I was able to leverage my 4+ years in SaaS Sales and change industries to continue growing my career. My new skill set also allowed me to successfully negotiate higher pay. Whether you're in school or have years of experience in the industry - School16 will teach you the skills to level up your career.”

Should be a part of college education

“I feel like what School16 does actually needs to be a part of college education, but it's not unfortunately and School16 does a great job of filling that gap. The curriculum actually teaches you to network, connect with people, find great employers, interview well, and give actionable playbooks on each part of the process. I enjoyed School16 and it has been instrumental for me in getting promoted and accelerating my professional growth!”

I feel equipped to find lasting success

“Walking out of the program, I felt that I was equipped with the tools I needed to find lasting success in my career. Through the teaching and mentorship I got from the program, I gained a position with a company in my desired industry. You really learn how to navigate your career from School16. From the classes I gained knowledge that I've always needed, but haven't been able to find on the internet or in person. I would strongly recommend School16 to anyone looking for a role in tech.”
