Technology Architecture Senior Analyst at Accenture

“As a woman making a career change from teaching to software development, I didn’t have the time or money to get a 4-year CS degree. The Hack Reactor curriculum taught me the lightweight technologies I needed to grow as an engineer, but most importantly, the Telegraph community gave me the confidence to face my imposter syndrome and accelerate my career growth post-graduation.”

“My life has been completely transformed since joining the Telegraph Track at Hack Reactor. The staff care deeply about each engineer and the community is a strong, growing network that makes the program and job search easier. Make no mistake, you have to do the work, but if you’re looking for a program that addresses your technical and non-technical needs, this is it. I would highly recommend Telegraph Track to any underrepresented engineer looking to make a career transition!”

“The Telegraph Track is a rigorous but rewarding addition to the Hack Reactor curriculum. I came in focused on building engineering skills at Hack Reactor and left with much more than that. The Telegraph Track curriculum gave me an informed view of the industry and techniques for how to solve the challenges underrepresented engineers face that have helped me thrive in my current role.”

Telegraph Track is separate from the bootcamp. It is a free, extra layer of resources available á la carte to members who are provided with hours of mentorship, career development resources, and exclusive events and opportunities in addition to the time spent in the Software Engineering Immersive program.

All Telegraph Track events and opportunities are totally voluntary and á la carte. Members can choose to take advantage of them as they fit into their schedules and align with their interests. 

Yes! When you graduate from the bootcamp, you’ll officially be a Hack Reactor graduate. For those who also spent time utilizing Telegraph Track resources during their time with Hack Reactor, you’ll receive an invitation to both alumni communities upon graduating.

There is no formal, additional, post-bootcamp outcomes support outside of what is already offered through our Hack Reactor Bootcamps. However, you can expect informal support from your Telegraph Track mentor and our network of alumni.

Upon starting the immersive at Hack Reactor, you’ll be invited to fill out an application for Telegraph Track. The application has questions related to race, ethnicity, and gender, which allow applicants to self-identify. Using this data helps us determine if an individual is part of an underrepresented group in STEM. We reference reputable nonprofit and government bodies of research about underrepresentation in STEM to inform our process.

Women and nonbinary people, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, Veterans, and students over age 40. With that said, our definition is flexible. If you believe you’re underrepresented in a different way, we encourage you to reach out to us in case Telegraph Track would be an appropriate resource.
