Career Coaching Includes
IMPOSTER SYNDROME & FEEDBACK WORKSHOP
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.
You’ll also learn to give and receive constructive feedback, a crucial skill for continuing to grow in your career.
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.
What are hiring managers looking for in a junior hire?
