Lambda's job placement is 29%.
Pretty much every single coding bootcamp does third party reporting with an agency called CIRR. Lambda School stopped using CIRR and started reporting their own numbers so that it could manipulate the data as they see fit.
Check Lambda's latest report here: Lambda's Report
CIRR takes the total number of students who enter a program and find the percentage of that number which find jobs as software developers. You will notice some very funny math coming out of Lambda's Report.
- 734 students to start with.
- Reduced to 300, and then reduced to 234 with the rest marked as "not-job-seeking".
- 60 added to the 234, and then 71% of that 294 total were able to find jobs.
So out of the 734 students who were enrolled in the program, 217 have jobs, but the marketing will claim the 71% placement rate above. Doing the math with the number from the total 734 that were in the program, not the 294 "job seekers", would be 29%.
