Efficacy of Udacity’s Nanodegree program?
I've been going through Udacity's FED nanodegree under the free trial in the hopes of switching careers. I've been doing my best to retain everything and work through as best I can. I've got enough to devote about six months to self study and hope to have a job or internship by the end of it.
In any case I decided to browse linkedin and look at past "graduates". What I found was depressing and disheartening. Virtually every one of Udacity's 5000 US based graduates fall into a few categories: already employed as a developer, engineering or computer science major, work at a big tech company in a non-tech role, employed in something low paying and non-tech like data entry.
To my knowledge there are literally a handful of that 5000 that solely learned from Udacity and got jobs as developers. This, in my opinion speaks to the lack of effectiveness of the program and makes me want to run the hell away as fast as I can. Has ANYONE here had career switching success from Udacity?
