We recently conducted an alumni survey and created an infographic in order to answer to the most common questions among our students such as:
- How long will I need to find a job?
- What position can I hold after the bootcamp?
- What type of contract?
- For which salary?
And many more...
We make every effort to best support our students in their job search at the end of the bootcamp. At the end of the 9-week full-time program, or 24-week part-time program, we organize offices hours: a dozen of workshops with Le Wagon's privileged partners - tech startups, product managers, investors - aiming to support students in their post-bootcamp projects. Among these partners we have many tech startups such as Doctolib, Drivy, Entrepreneur First, Comet or Wemind.
Twice a year, we organize Le Wagon Summit: Le Wagon's biggest networking event, which brings together more than 40 French tech startups and more than 200 Le Wagon alumni each year. During the last Summits, we counted among our partners major companies of the tech scene such as Facebook, Meero, Mindsay, Skello, WTTJ, Mano Mano, or even Leboncoin.
Le Wagon also gives you access to a broad and international community of +6,000 alumni. They often come back to Le Wagon to give tips and feedback to new students, and they will very often share job & co-founder opportunities.
On our side, we are very close to many tech companies and often do direct intro. We also have a Career Playbook, in which we explain how to continue to progress after the bootcamp, how to prepare yourself at technical tests, how to find a job of junior developer etc
The result? Our alumni looking for a job at the end of the program usually achieve their goals within less than 3 months. Obviously, we cannot promise anything: we consider that a candidate's ability to find a job is above all based on their involvement and motivation.
