What can you expect from Ironhack's Career Advisor?
We've made career guidance simple (but effective!) by breaking it down into four steps:
Before you even begin your bootcamp (during the online prework) we'll help you to visualize an achievable tech career plan. All new Ironhackers perform different exercises to better understand their motivation and skills, start working on designing their personal brand through Ironhack’s Personal Branding Canvas, and perform research about the job market and potential roles. These exercises are designed for all students, regardless of their desired outcome. After, you'll navigate your way through your bootcamp with clarity and purpose, and be extra-prepared for the job hunt after graduation.
During the bootcamp, you'll learn how to navigate the online jobs market, with a sharp focus on building your digital profiles and learning how to network effectively. You will have an individual meeting with one of our Career Coaches and together we will hone your digital profiles into ones that highlight your skills and attract recruiters. We will also talk about your career plans and goals after the bootcamp, to be able to support you with personalized guidance in the next stage.
This is the warm-up before the job-hunt! This stage involves a week full of workshops, webinars and challenges designed to train you and improve your job searching skills. You'll learn the ins-and-outs of job hunting, applying, and interviewing.
After the warm-up, now it's game on! Throughout the job search, we provide weekly one-on-one guidance, and support you through access to our Hiring Partners.during this phase, and after graduation we will connect you with these companies who are actively looking for new talent just like you. You'll 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 match companies and students based on their preferences such as language/s spoken, location, hard skills, and soft skills.
