With a record 32% of the workforce considering changing careers, Codecademy’s new campaign speaks to our shifting priorities around work and life. The company drew inspiration directly from its learners and their aspirations to not just start a new career, but to live a better life by learning to code.

“We heard from our learners, read their conversation threads in our forums, and connected their feedback to what’s happening in the world at this very moment,” said Robin Zucker, Interim Chief Marketing Officer at Codecademy. “People everywhere are taking ownership of their lives, forging new career paths in order to achieve what’s most important to them—whether that’s time spent with family, freedom to travel, or financial stability and job security. We see this every day among our learners, and decided to launch this campaign to help even more people learn the skills they need to lead the lives they want.”
