SC Codes is a learning platform that gives all South Carolina residents free access to code education. No strings attached. What makes us so special is our high-quality, custom-built curriculum and our amazing network of mentors (all available in a few clicks of your mouse!)
Below, you’ll find a few suggestions on how to set yourself up for success throughout your job search and as you enter the workforce.
We are excited to announce the addition of our “Career Support” course created specifically for entry-level software developers. We’ve included resources on how to craft a great technical resume and cover letter, resources on how to search for jobs, information on creating a great portfolio, and much more.
One thing that’s more frustrating than the “Chicken vs The Egg” debate is the “How do I gain experience as a developer, if no one will hire me until I have experience as a developer?” question.
We’ve heard this enough times that we decided to build a solution – The Develop Carolina Fellowship program. This 6-month, paid fellowship program is for new software developers who are ready to enter into the field as a professional developer, but may just need a little help.
These resources may include videos, blog posts, articles, podcasts and more. We also love when learners & job seekers share the resources they’ve found value in, so please reach out if there’s a resource you’d like to share with others. And check back here frequently for additions and updates!

We would love to get to know you better and provide you with additional resources and services such as portfolio review, resume feedback, and more. The easiest way for us to do that is through Slack. If you’re not familiar with Slack, it’s an easy to use (and free) messaging app that the SC Codes team and learners use as our primary communication tool. It’s also a very widely used app in the tech industry…so you’re gonna have to get used to it anyways!
Keep an eye on our Event Calendar or follow us on social media to stay in the know!
Ready to put those new skills to work & make a difference in the lives of the next generation of SC tech talent?
