    The main thing I would say to people considering the bootcamp is don’t let imposter syndrome get in the way. Without the bootcamp, I wouldn’t have been introduced to UBDS. I’m confident that Skills City’s tailored talent acquisition process will find you the right employer in its network, like it did for me.
