Make School is increasingly becoming known among recruiters as a source of top talent. We hold regular job fairs both on-campus and online with companies like Microsoft, Lyft, Uber, Yelp, and Twitch in order to help you land the most sought-after tech jobs. Our alumni network is also a powerful resource for connecting to potential opportunities in Silicon Valley and around the world. There are over 1200 Make School and Summer Academy graduates working in the industry who are eager to help you navigate your career.
It's kinda weird seeing myself head to head, toe to toe with students from schools like Stanford and Harvard. Make School is incredibly good at preparing you for a job. If you're a student looking for computer science, Make School is the right place for you.
