We also know this at Le Wagon. That’s why we make sure to recruit the most motivated talent to join our bootcamps, and we support them getting ready for the market once they finish our programs. If you’re looking for talent right now, here are 5 reasons why you should consider hiring our graduates.

 1. Our graduates are challenge-driven 


Our bootcamps are fast-paced. From day one and throughout our courses, web development and data science students are introduced to complex concepts and trained to solve challenging problems. 

One thing you can be sure of : they are not afraid of hard problems. They face them as learning opportunities and actually manage to have some fun! 

"The bootcamp was everything but easy, yet regardless of how demanding it was, they succeeded. They now bring this “can-do” attitude learned at Le Wagon to Sollum." Patrick, CEO Sollum, hired three Le Wagon graduates.

2. They know how to collaborate in teams (and they love it)


In the two last weeks of our programs, students deliver function applications from scratch, using the team development workflow and collaboration tools such as github. They are also introduced to Agile and scrum methodology for communication and task sharing. This last sprint is the most exciting time of bootcamp where students will apply their newly acquired skills in a real-time project, creating a web application or a data product.

“The bootcamp also focuses on soft-skills: curiosity, open-mindedness, creativity, and problem solving, which in my opinion, is even more important than coding.” Eric, IT director at Surmesur, hired four alumni.

3. They have diverse backgrounds and a wide skill set


The vast majority of our students are professionals coming from different backgrounds with one thing in common : a strong motivation to learn. Aside from their past experiences as marketing managers, project managers, designers, sales experts and so much more, they are curious, taking this huge step to learn web development or data science to extend or switch their careers. Motivation is something they DO have A LOT OF!

“What we like the most about Le Wagon's alumni is that they have the "grit" and we don't find those qualities often.” Héloïse, Ubisoft, hired one alumni.

4. They adapt fast


Our bootcamps combine hard and soft skills. Amongst themselves, students learn how to quickly adapt to use new tools, methodologies, processes and ways of thinking. As with everyone else in the world, the pandemic gave us the opportunity to test and train our own abilities to adapt even faster to different situations. Since last April, we have been running remote and hybrid batches. All our students have demonstrated a great attitude, collaborating and working excellently with their remote buddies. They  have been willing to adapt and learn even under difficult circumstances, a must-have skill today. 

“My job is remote, so building the habits I did during the bootcamp, such as self-managing and self-motivating myself, helped me stick to a productive routine every day.” Solene, alumna hired by Webistry after graduating in June 2020.

5. They are passionate about what they do

The future of work is all about that passion : the ability to keep learning because you truly care about what you do. There is no better investment than someone who is passionate about their job.

“It is always inspiring to meet such ambitious and passionate people with absolutely amazing backgrounds” : Divya, recruiter at Alayacare who participated in our last career week events.
