We’ve seen a lot of success with graduate employment rates. Online Career Change graduates have access to the same incredible career services team that has helped 98% of our in-person graduates earn jobs, with full-time starting salaries over $74,000.
What Students Can Expect From Us
DURING THE SEMESTER: MEET YOUR COACH & KICK OFF CAREER PREP
Meet your coach: Every student is assigned a dedicated Career Coach, who will work with you to build a resume, kick off 1:1 career advice sessions, and practice interviewing and networking strategies that will help you connect with people inside and outside your network as you’re starting your job search.
Career Prep: You’ll have access to a Career Prep curriculum detailing how to build your online and offline presence, how to network, how to approach technical interviews, and more. As you’re working through the curriculum, you’ll meet with your Career Coach, who will offer additional guidance tailored to your specific experiences.
After Graduation: Introductions and Continued Support
After graduation, you’ll meet with your coach regularly to review and build your job-search pipeline, and to talk through how to approach specific interviews and interactions with employers — everything from what to write in a follow-up e-mail to what to expect in an interview. Your Coach will help you leverage your own personal and professional network, manage interview processes, and identify ways in to companies where you’d love to work.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM STUDENTS
Our part alone doesn’t get students hired. Anyone who’s ever had to find a job knows that it’s a whole lot of work. We expect quite a bit from them, and so far, almost every Flatiron School graduate has risen to the challenge.
After graduation, you’ll work from a framework we provide to help organize your job search — we expect students to put in a lot of effort, and we outline those expectations clearly, so you know what it takes. That includes things like:
- Creating a resume that highlights your skills and experience
- Continuing to code and improve your skills, even after graduation
- Blogging about what you’re learning, to cement and communicate your understanding of new concepts
- Communicating with your coach about your job-search activities
- Completing code challenges on schedule
- Networking with individuals in your community who are relevant to your job search
We provide a ton of resources to help students be successful in their job search, but ultimately, our students’ hard work is the reason they’re successful. You’ll work closely with your coach throughout the process, and we’re here to provide structure and support every step of the way.
