The "I Shouldn't Have To" Fallacy


You might think:

"I shouldn't have to send a video pitch to land a job."
"I shouldn't have to offer to work for free to land a job."

You've made the "I shouldn't have to" fallacy!

Let's break it down real quick. ; )

First, you don't have to do anything! Everything is a choice. You are empowered.

Second, reality is reality. Maybe I shouldn't have to eat food to survive, but that is the way it is. Soo....will I take control of my health?

Will you take control of your career?

Work with reality, and focus on what's in your self-interest, given that reality.


Go from Beginner to Web Developer (with job guarantee)


Walt Disney was right - you can do anything you put your mind to.

That means if you grew up in poverty, you can become wealthy.

That means with no college degree, you can break into a tech career.

And it means with Springboard’s Foundations to Core course, in only 11 months part-time, you can become a professional web developer with absolutely no prior knowledge.

Oh and you’re guaranteed a job or your money back.

As a Springboard full-stack web development bootcamp student, you can expect

  • Job guarantee - land a job or get your money back
  • Flexible schedule - 100% online, self-paced
  • Mentorship from an experienced full stack software developer

Over 40% of Springboard software engineering students do not hold a college degree. And the average grad increases their salary by $26,559.

January cohort spots are filling up.

Apply now. Use code CAREERHACKERSSB for $500 off tuition.

“Learning with Springboard was really fun. I never felt like I was in a position where I didn't have the tools to learn something.”
