Let's get ready to rumble!

Meet Petra 👋, one of our career coaches

"I have a background within HR, recruitment, and as an IT Consulting Manager at companies such as Mojang and Recommended By. For the past five years, I've been active in the tech industry with a focus on supporting junior developers, building their profiles, and onboarding.

Today I help career changers at Technigo to land their first job in tech – I push them to go outside their comfort zone and support them when they do... and I love it. Other things I love are my son, my friends, my family, travel, laughing, and great food (nothing is better than food 😋)

Do you have any questions for me? I would love to hear from you personally through video, audio, or text and you will get a personal video reply back." Ask Petra.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you guarantee a job if I join the Career Coaching Program?

We don't control the market and therefore we can't guarantee a job, but we have 95% hiring rate so it's proven that the Career Coaching Program helps you to land a job.

Is the Career Coaching Program included in the Boot Camp schedule?

No. It's an extra program run in parallel with the Boot Camp, starting four weeks into the Boot Camp and ending at graduation. Career Coaching Program lectures and coaching sessions will not clash with the Boot Camp schedule.

How much time am I expected to spend?

It's up to you how much time you want to spend to reach your goals and get your dream job. For the assignments and lectures, we recommend one to two hours/week.

Can I wait and sign up later to the program?

We plan our resources after the first sign up, so we can't guarantee that there will be any free spots left if you sign up afterwards. Book your seat when you sign up to the boot camp :)
