Careerhack - Stage 2.1: Job Hunting

Phase 1: Warm Up Before starting our Job Search, it's essential going through a full job hunting drill, so you can replicate it once you start looking on your own. The Warm-Up phase is a week full of workshops, webinars and challenges designed to train you and improve your job searching skills.

Careerhack - Stage 2.2: Job Hunting

Phase #2: Sprint Once we're all warmed up, It's game time! Throughout the job search, we provide weekly one on one guidance with support and access to our Hiring Partners through different channels. Our Sprint phase is designed to support you until you get your desired outcome. During the Stage 2.2 and once you graduate, we will connect you with the hiring partners who are actively looking for new talent. You will jump straight into the interview stage and introductions will be made based on affinity. We want to ensure each interview is as productive as possible. For this reason, we ask both companies and students their preferences regarding language, location, hard skills, and soft skills, matching based on this criteria.

Elise Delorme

Talent & Partnership Associate

Made in Colombia. Knowmad, lover of books, arts and makeup. She was a lawyer at some point in her life, (yes, one of those who wear a suit and heels). But when she had the opportunity to work on projects with HR, she decided to leave everything, become a coach and accompany others to discover that bitter but also very sweet taste of reinventing yourself to pursue a professional dream. I believe in empathy as a change driver.
