What is Career Assistance at Grand Circus?
Grand Circus offers Career Services to bootcamp students who are eager and ready to earn a new career in tech. During the bootcamp, students will be expected to attend soft skills sessions, career 1-1’s and company info sessions among other activities. Below is a list that outlines what we expect students/alumni to complete during and after bootcamp in order to receive career services.
After graduation, alumni continue to have access to career services, if they choose. Alumni who are in compliance with Career Services requirements can continue to contact the career services team for advice on phone and in-person interviews, applications and contract/salary negotiations, among other topics. The Grand Circus career services team also holds after-bootcamp alumni 1:1 support in an effort to continue to provide advice and resources to graduates in need.
- Participate in at minimum two career 1-1’s during bootcamp with Career Services.
- Be responsive to communications from the Grand Circus Career Services Team within two business days (or within reason accounting for unforeseen or extenuating circumstances).
- Complete one mock behavioral interview with a Grand Circus team member.
- Turn in an approved technical resume to the career services team by the assigned deadline or risk not being eligible for graduation.
- Submit an approved LinkedIn profile to the career services team by the assigned deadline or risk not being eligible for graduation.
- Email/Slack a Career Services Team Member within one business day of receipt of any job offer, including job offer, name of the entity extending the offer, and the title and compensation rate of the position being offered.
- Students and alumni who choose to not complete these requirements are at risk of being without career prospects at the conclusion of bootcamp. We strongly encourage students to follow the guidelines set forth and use the resources that Grand Circus Career Services provides.
What Does Our Career Coaching Include?
Many students struggle with thoughts like “I don’t belong here” and “I’ll never be a good enough developer.” The truth is this: even the most experienced professionals battle imposter syndrome. We’ll help you identify self-doubt and find ways to overcome it.
Whether you’re a graduating bootcamp student or a seasoned professional, interviewing can be scary. The trick to moving past the fear is simple, though: practice and preparation.
Through several interview prep sessions, your career coach will train you to succeed in behavioral and technical interviews that employers use. You’ll receive coaching from our team through a series of mock interviews.
