Too good to be true opportunity? Java training and job placement.
I found on Dice.com a posting looking for Java/Android developer trainees. They almost cover anything including free training(5-7weeks), accommodation, seemingly 100% job placement(with 70K+ first year salary), seemingly H1B visa and Green Card sponsorship. This sounds too good to be true to me. Can anyone help me to see if this is scam or legit ? #job #programming #java

Too good to be true. While I've heard of companies hiring people with no prior programming experience and teaching them, it's typically a set up where they can identify and keep the top 2%, and even in that case I seriously doubt they'll start anyone at $70K+. There are several red flags here:
7 weeks of training is not enough to learn Java at a level where you could be useful.
100% job placement is unheard of. That's like an online dating site promising 100% marriage results.
Accommodation included. If they're paying their "trainees," I'm not sure why they would also need to throw in free housing.
This all sounds very fishy to me . . . on the slim chance that it's legit, there's going to be a catch like you're actually joining the military, or it's extremely dangerous work, or work that is so undesirable that these terms are what is required to get willing candidates.
I would look elsewhere.
I have worked with candidates from these companies. I think the biggest thing to be mindful of in your situation, is the company will "place" you. This means you will have very little say in where you end up working. It is also hit or miss, the type of training you will receive.
