What Can I Expect After Graduation?
From our graduates:
“It was just so nice to have a dedicated person with a comprehensive perspective on the job search for questions and advice.”
– Matthew B, Software Engineering Grad
“The ability to be there for me. She helped me every step of the way and sometimes going out of the way for me. She did not let me down at any moment!”
– Carlos R, Data Science Grad
Working with my Career Coach provided me with so much confidence and impactful advice for my personal career search. She gave me much needed accountability throughout my job search, and kept me on track with hitting various targets and milestones (i.e. updating LinkedIn, creating cover letters, designing a resume, etc.) Beyond the accountability, she shared lots of invaluable resources that were a huge help to me as well.” – Kelsey C, Product Design Grad
“My Career Coach provided me a new perspective on how to approach the job finding process, which made all the difference both in the short-term as well as long term. I now have contacts at a couple of “dream companies” that I would not have otherwise. I’ll be able to reach out later on as I continue to gain more experience in my new field and that will definitely help guide my career in the direction that I want it to go well into the future.”
– Roy M, Software Engineering Grad
