Of course, Kevan’s success was not without hard work. We don’t usually recommend looking for jobs during the program, as preparing and attending interviews take up a chunk of time that is supposed to be spent learning. However, Kevan was determined to meet his own deadline and made it work. With the guidance of our instructors, he not only attended classes everyday from Monday to Friday, from 9am and usually ending past 6 in the evening, but he also “stayed back every day to prepare for the interviews and was on Codewars to practice algorithms,” Kevan said. What worked incredibly well for him was being completely honest with the companies he was interviewing with, and with regards to how much experience he had and how far along he was in his Bootcamp journey. The company he now works for, along with many more are very receptive to hiring Coding Bootcamp graduates. The structure of “Le Wagon is very similar,” Kevan said, referring to the daily challenges students work on in pair programming as part of our course. It really shows our curriculum and teaching styles work when our graduates are able to come out of these technical interviews and finish the challenges set for the interview process more confident than when they go in.
“Le Wagon certainly prepared me well enough for that,” Kevan said.
