The career coach will sit down with each student starting week 6 of the program and
start building out their resumes. The coach will speak with each student and figure out what they want to do after the program and understand what their programming strengths are. The coach will help each student complete their resumes by week 9 of the program.
The instructor will provide whiteboard questions every day to start the class
session. The whiteboard questions will be comparable to interview questions that students may be asked. During week 10 of the program, the instructor will meet with each student and individually conduct a 1 hour technical whiteboard interview.
Students will work with the career coach to practice behavioral questions, conduct mock interviews, perfect their ninety second pitches, and build self confidence. The career coach will provide feedback for improvement.
The second part of the interview process is normally a technical assessment that is given to students. At the end of the program, all students will be able to take a practice IKM assessment to get a better understanding of where their skill-sets are, but they will also be able to have the opportunity to understand what a technical assessment will look like.
Instructors, the teachers assistant, student relations, the career coach, and alumni will take part in providing 1-1 mentoring for students. They will be there to help answer any questions and provide the proper guidance. If students are struggling in any aspect of the interview process, our team will work with them to improve their skill-set whether it is behavioral or technical. We will keep practicing and following up with students until they are comfortable and confident in their skills.
Coding Temple has a vast alumni network. Throughout the program, alumni will come in and provide interview tips to all of the students. They will also be referrals for open positions at their companies.

The goal of the showcase week is to connect the recruiters with the students and for the students to figure out where they can see themselves after Coding Temple . After the presentations, the recruiters will decide who they want to bring in for a final interview.
We will work with non profit organizations in arranging a hackathon for the program. The hackathon is a great way to practice the new skills the students will learn at Coding Temple.
The career coach will work with the class to help update their LinkedIn profile and provide helpful tips and guidance on how to best use Linkedin.
