What are the career services after the bootcamp?
- One of them is our career week 🚀, the week after the Bootcamp, we work on CVs, cover letters, and practice coding interviews with our recent graduates.
- Next to the career week, our alumni receive 5 to 10 job offers every week 💼. They can also schedule a 15 minutes consultation with our Partnerships & Careers Manager. We help graduates with applying for jobs, writing cover letters, and preparing for the coding challenge.
- Finally, we organise one hiring session every week 📣 . Companies get privileged access to our community and alumni. Before the session, our alumni get the chance to work on a coding challenge that the company will deliver. After the one hour session, the companies receive our alumni's CVs and the solutions to the coding challenges.
