It’s no secret that coding bootcamps have a strong return on investment (ROI) with regards to jobs and salary post-bootcamp graduation.

But as you consider a career path in web development, you may be wondering what types of roles a specific skill set will get you. And that’s totally valid! Following completion of your coding bootcamp, you’ll have the skills you need to hit the ground running as a coder. Specifically for front end web developers, you’ll have a strong understanding of how to style websites so that they have seamless, user-friendly designs.

But what kinds of jobs will you be eligible for? Here’s a breakdown of what to expect.

Skills & Jobs

Front end web developers focus specifically on the look and feel of websites and apps. As a result, front end roles with most companies - large or small - involve the following:

  • Building client websites and email templates with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

  • Building responsive websites that look clean and function effectively across different devices

  • Building the user-facing portion of mobile apps

In the digital era we live in, companies in most industries need websites that enable users to get the products and information they need quickly. According to Course Report, the most common front end post-bootcamp job titles in 2018 were:

  • Front end developer

  • Junior web developer

  • UX/UI designer

  • Product manager

  • Mobile developer

Coding bootcamps such as Nucamp’s Front End Web + Mobile Development course teach you these skills, focusing on project-based learning so that you’re comfortable applying coding language knowledge to real-world situations in collaboration with others.

Open roles in web development are expected to grow 15 percent through 2026, meaning that open positions in web development are likely to continue.


Not only is there a healthy supply of jobs in front end development - but bootcamp graduates usually see an increase in salary following graduation. This is part of what makes the ROI of coding bootcamp so strong!

According to data from Course Report, bootcamp graduates reported an average salary of $64,525 in 2018. The same data also found that on average, this was an 18 percent increase from their pre-bootcamp salary.

For front end web developers specifically, data from Glassdoor shows that many senior-level front end web developers make six-figure salaries. In fact, in U.S. cities such as Boston or New York, front end web developers with 5-10 years of experience are making around $120,000!

Job Guarantees

Most coding students attend bootcamps as a part of a career switch. As a result, many students are drawn to programs that guarantee employment post-bootcamp - and if a student doesn’t find a job, they’re promised their tuition back.

However, it’s worth reading the details of these guarantees prior to making a commitment. Some guarantees don’t let you turn down jobs - this is a problem if you’ve been offered a job that is outside your preferred focus and/or has a wage you are uncomfortable with. Some guarantees might also consider internships a job. Although internships provide incredible work experience, they usually do not come with the salary and benefits of a full time job.

Other guarantees may require students to complete a certain amount of job applications per week. This can be difficult if you’re searching for a very specific role, or if you live in a region with a limited tech industry.

Preparing for Your Job Search

Build a Portfolio

As a part of your job application to most employers, you’ll need to include some examples of your coding skills in action. A portfolio website is a great way to showcase your prior work in a way that highlights your skillset.

Coding bootcamps such as Nucamp include portfolio site building as a part of course curriculum. As all of our courses include project-based learning, you’ll have a variety of projects to showcase following bootcamp completion, allowing you to fast-track your job search.


Although it may seem outside your coursework, it’s good to start thinking about networking for potential job opportunities early. Nucamp helps students with their search by providing free LinkedIn Premium access during their course, enabling students to connect with potential employers, recruiters, and mentors in the field while they’re completing bootcamp.
