FOR CAREER CHANGERS

How we help you to land a developer job

All students have the option to add our Career Coaching Program as part of their Boot Camp journey. Get professional help to build your profile and extend your network to land your dream job.

95% hiring rate for career changers

We have combined all of our knowledge from working with hundreds of candidates in tech into a program to help you build your network and nail future interviews.

We are proud to have such a high success rate among career changers joining our Career Coaching Program. 95% of participants have got a job within six months of graduation. Joining a completely new industry requires more skills than just technology – building a network, changing how you present yourself, and nailing those interviews are equal parts of your success.

We know that job search can be a struggle. We have created a program filled with one-to-one coaching with professional career coaches, guest speakers, mentorship, and other activities to help you find a new job.

The Career Coaching Program is an optional add-on to your Boot Camp fee and runs in parallel with the Boot Camp, specifically designed for career changers. Expect weekly assignments and coaching that will push you forward towards your dream job. We know our methods work, so we will give you your coaching fee back if you don't land a job within six months of graduating from the Boot Camp.

Main focus areas:

  • Creating an attractive profile. Make a good first impression with an interesting profile
  • Developing communication and interview skills. Practice with recruiters and fellow students
  • Building a strong network. Become an active member in the tech community

Meet Petra πŸ‘‹, your career coach

"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 πŸ˜‹)"

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. If you by any chance don't land a job within six months of graduation, you will get the coaching fee back.

Is the career coaching program included in the Boot Camp schedule?

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

What do I need to do to be able to use the money-back guarantee?

You need to be active in the Career Coaching Program, hand in all your assignments in time, graduate the boot camp, and apply for jobs as per our recommendations. If you do that and don't get a job within six months, you will get your money back.

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.

How do I sign up for the Career Coaching Program?

During the application to the boot camp, you can choose with or without the Career Coaching Program.

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. Sign up now to guarantee your spot – it's risk-free as you will get your money back if you don't get a job :)
