Hi, I'm Praveen Kumar Purushothaman. I'm a Full Stack Developer with 6+ years of industrial experience. I have a Masters in Cloud Computing with Distinction from the University of Leicester, England.
Let me ask you a simple question.
What was your plan after you graduate with a degree in computer sciences?
Get a well-paying job and spend days coding passionately.
And what happens when you don’t get that job, even after months and years of graduation?
You get so frustrated that you feel like punching a wall... just like these two.
Can you hear that? Listen closely.
They are screaming,
“Why won’t anyone give me a job? Someone PLEASE give me a job!”
Imagine their hopelessness.
They would have sent countless job applications and tried their luck at every walk-in-interview. Their resumes would beg every hiring manager to give them ONE chance.
Unfortunately, none of their job applications receives any callbacks. And every walk-in-interview ends in rejection, disappointment and frustration.
Finally, tens and hundreds of rejections later, their self-esteem is shattered, their self-confidence doesn’t exist, and their sense of self-worth is ZERO.
Every night they would cry and pray for a miracle before they went to sleep.
Many of us have been in this depressing situation. Some of us still are suffering from this never-ending phase of unemployment.
Maybe you are in this difficult situation too.
Let’s be honest here. If you have been telling yourself, “OMG, this is me!”, then you are suffering like them.
But there’s good news for you.
What if I tell you that your jobless nightmare will end in the next 3 months? What if you have the secret recipe to make that happen?
Because I’m going to give you the step-by-step process to end your unemployment, right now.
Let’s get started.
When we have been rejected a hundred times, what motivates us to apply for a job again and again?
In such situations, we always find a way to not give up.
Personally, I love people who never give up. It’s a sign of strong character and will power. When I think of someone who kept trying no matter what, I think of these legends.
But why did they find success and we aren’t able to… no matter how much we try?
It’s because they kept trying in the right direction.
You see, the problem is that we put our efforts into doing things that don’t work. No matter how much you try, you will never reach your destination if you keep walking in the wrong direction.
Think about it.
What if I told you that you could go faster than a cheetah if you keep trying and never give up? You would hit me with a frying pan!
But on the other hand, if I gave you a car and asked you to go faster than a cheetah, you would… easily.
So far you have been trying to outrun the cheetah on foot.
And what makes this problem worse is when we decide to get a masters degree.
Let’s say we get a master degree. Then what?
We again end up in the same cycle that starts with sending job applications and ends in rejection and disappointment.
Please don’t get me wrong. I think higher education is excellent. If you can afford to do it from an elite institute… go for it. It DOES significantly help in getting a job.
But that’s the biggest disadvantage. Only if you get higher education from such institutions, your job prospects will improve. And they cost a bomb. We middle-class folks can’t afford it. At least not without a loan.
And, when you do get a job, you end up spending a large portion of your salary paying off the loan.
Can you imagine how awful that is?
You will most likely spend the next 10-20 years of your life paying off that loan. I know people who are in their late-30s and are still paying off their education loan.
What about your dreams? What about taking that trip with your family? What about building that house you always wanted?
Where would you have money to do any of that?
I don’t know about you, but to me, that certainly sounds like a terrible plan.
Wouldn’t it be much better if you could get a well-paying job without all that fuss?
You know what, you can… only if you know the ONE thing, every hiring manager looks for.
Let me tell you something that no one talks about.
The best and the biggest companies in the world will tell you that if you can prove to them that you can make them bigger and better, they will hire you instantly.
Consider this paragraph in a 2019 Business Insider article:

There you go!
The secret here is to have “skills that get the job done”.
Not only that.
If you want to secure a well-paying job today, then you need skills that are in high-demand TODAY.
That’s all you need to do.
“But Praveen, what are these skills?”
There are many.
But hiring managers find one skill extremely rare and precious. They dream of hiring a candidate with that skill.
Let me show you what that is.
HackerRank surveyed over 1 lakh developers across 162 countries (including India), between Nov-Dec 2019.
And this is what they found.

In fact, 43% of small companies (1-49 employees) say that full-stack developers are their top priority.
That’s almost half of them!
There’s a crazy demand for them all across the world.
Tell me something. Imagine you need someone to do three different tasks for you. Would you
Of course, you will hire one person who can do all the three tasks.
You need to only deal with one guy and not three. You save the cost of hiring two more people. Any smart person would go with the second option.
And exactly that’s why companies are going crazy over hiring full-stack developers.
Companies hire full-stack developers to create online products and services.
They have the technical knowledge to operate all the three layers of a project - Front-End, Back-End and the Database Layer.
That means that a full-stack developer has the skills to handle the development of an entire product single-handedly.
For the companies this means,
Transforming from a front-end developer or a backend developer to a full-stack developer is like turning into a Super Saiyan.
No wonder every founder and hiring manager LOVES full-stack developers.
“Alright, Praveen. You have made your point. Now tell me how much do they earn?”
I won’t tell you. I’ll show you.
To give you an even better idea on how much companies pay, here’s a small list compiled by Glassdoor.
Now the question is, how do you develop these skills.
A full-stack developer is expected to know many languages. Surely this would take years to learn.
You can become a skilled and experienced full-stack developer in as little as three months.
To become a skilled and experienced full-stack developer that founders and hiring managers desire badly is…
A well-structured bootcamp that teaches the specific skills that founders and hiring managers look for in an ideal full-stack developer.
I know, I know. You have probably heard everyone say,
"A bootcamp doesn’t get you a job... bootcamps are not as good as a proper college degree."
Well, they are wrong.
Don’t believe me?
Would you instead believe IBM’s Vice President of Compensation, Benefits, & HR Business Development, Joanna Daly?
Here’s what she told CNBC Make It.
Not only does she encourage developers to attend coding bootcamps, but she also prefers candidates who have hands-on experience.
You see, companies, big and small, are now looking beyond college degrees. They want to see skills and experience in handling projects.
Take the case of Sean Davis, for example. He’s the security engineer for IBM’s cybersecurity business.
When CNBC Make It asked how he got the job at IBM, this is what he said.
I know what you are thinking.
“Praveen, we need a job to build experience. And we have no job! We are back at square one.”
You are absolutely right.
But what if you could build experience without having a job?
Every successful bootcamp has one element in common - an effective structure. These bootcamps ensure that students master the skills.
The students are required to work on live projects that help them build practical experience.
That’s why bootcamps are so effective in skill training and building experience, at the same time.
And hiring managers agree with that.
According to them, the top 3 reasons bootcamp graduates excel are
Bootcamp graduates often have a way better chance of getting picked up by hiring managers.

This isn’t a dream. It’s a reality.
Imagine HUNGRY hiring managers calling you all day.
They have just gone through your resume, and they can’t stop salivating over your skills and finished projects.
They immediately call you up to set up an interview.
You crush the technical rounds. Everyone is extremely impressed with you. The interviewer realises that you are the perfect candidate to help them build kickass online products.
Within a week, you have hiring managers telling you the 4 magical words you have been dying to hear.
“Congratulations! You are selected.”
Now, you know the way. You know the secrets. It’s time to upgrade yourself.
Would you wait for 6 months to get a job, when you could get it in just 3 months? Of course not! You have waited long enough for it.
I wanted you to learn maximum skills and gain maximum experience… in the shortest time possible.
After all, time is money. The sooner you learnt all the skills, the sooner you would be able to get the job and start earning.
I divided the bootcamp into two parts:
The majority of our 130-hour live training focuses on developing core concepts and skills that founders and hiring managers want job applicants to have.
This is a critical factor in getting a job. If hiring managers don’t see these skills on your resume, they will simply ignore it.
The complementary concepts are equally important. However, we have structured our bootcamp in a way that you will be able to master them while you work on live projects and assignments.
So you see, you are not losing anything!
Let me take you through the details.
This is a 400-hour long bootcamp. Out of that, you will spend 130 dedicated hours in live training on Zoom. So make sure you have Zoom installed on your laptop. You will spend the remaining 270-hours building online products, websites or apps, interacting with startup founders and entrepreneurs and completing assignments.
You will be able to ask questions and clarify your doubts within the live sessions. Unlike recorded classes, you don’t have to wait for weeks to have your questions answered.
You will spend a massive amount of time coding and building real online products, websites and apps for startups. These are real projects from real companies. That means that these companies will launch your products and everyone on the internet will be able to see it.
Your knowledge and skill will improve the more you learn how they think. You will talk to them about how they want their product, website or app to work. They will review your work, identify mistakes and offer suggestions on how to rectify and improve your code.
Apart from your ability to code, hiring managers also assess your soft skills. How you talk, how you communicate, how well you listen, how you perform in a team, whether you are capable of leading a team, etc. Impressive technical skills + extraordinary soft skills = Guaranteed job selection!
Every hiring manager and founder is present on LinkedIn. They are searching for the perfect candidates every day. That’s why having an optimised profile on LinkedIn is mandatory. So that when they search for a full-stack developer, they can find your profile and see your skills and experiences.
It won’t matter how impressive your coding skills are or how much experience you have if your resume ends up in a dustbin. Hiring managers like short and to-the-point resumes. We will help you build a resume that will highlight what a hiring manager exactly wants to see in it—nothing more, nothing less.
