Why is Betting on Sustainability a Good Choice? 

As our experts will tell you, making sustainable choices in your designs is crucial for ensuring the future existence of our resource and environment as a whole. But that’s not it: committing to sustainability can help you: 

  • Fall in love with what you do: having a job you love can help to give your life a new sense of meaning, and can give you the freedom and flexibility to enjoy your personal life to the max. When you work on something that you really care about, enjoy doing day-to-day, with people you admire, work stops being work and becomes a vocation.

  • Discover more about tech: tech is so vast and varied, and much more accessible than you may think. Whatever your talents or passions, there’s a place for you in tech. Maybe you’ll be the next great UX/UI designer, taking eCommerce to the next level. Salaries in tech are also often higher compared to other industries.

  • Enjoy your work: it’s not just about what you do, it’s how you do it. Discover whether you’re more into turning up to a city-center coworking space every day, or you want to roam free wherever WiFi can be found. Are you looking for your next great boss, or do you want to be your own?

  • Spark a new career trajectory: get support from an experienced Career Coach for 1 year post graduation (as long as you're actively job hunting). Take advantage of 1:1 coaching to do mock interviews or unblock any blockers. Receive job postings from our global network of 1000+ hiring companies.
