What is the student Outcomes experience like — from the first day, to after graduation?

Our Outcomes programming fosters continual growth at each point of your job search. Whether you’re getting ready to send out quality job applications, networking for a mentor, or prepping for a technical interview, there are many opportunities to build your professional skill set beyond your course curriculum.

In-class training programs can include:

  • Lectures and workshops that cover everything from technical interviewing skills, tips on effective networking, targeting strong application materials, and much more.

  • One-on-one and group meetings with career coaches to discuss job search strategies and how to implement them, plus identify job search roadblocks and how to work through them.

  • Events and speakers that keep you on the pulse of today’s latest innovations, in-demand skills, and up-and-coming companies.

Post-graduation support can include:

  • Recurring check-ins with career coaches to track your goals and assess your overall progress.

  • Workshops to refine your resume, improve your application quality, and ensure you are an active job seeker who lands phone screens and interviews.

  • Preparation for both conversational and technical aspects of your interview.

  • Guidance with salary and benefits negotiation.

We create a community by hosting a range of events. For example, our talent showcases invite industry experts and employers to view student portfolios and chat with them about their skills, interests, and career goals.

We also create and nurture employer relationships through candidate recommendations, which directly connect students with employers that have open roles. Typically we will work with employers to understand what roles they have open and then find great matches from our graduate pool. From there we will share the candidates' materials (e.g., resume, portfolio, etc.) with the employer and then work to set up an interview.

How does Bitmaker General Assembly’s Outcomes team maintain relationships with employers?

It starts with absolute enthusiasm for their new field and desire to continue learning. It’s important to be seen as making a positive impact on the team they are being hired for.

Technically, it depends on the role. For example, UI skills are important when looking for user experience (UX) design candidates, strong writing and presentation abilities are key qualities in data science hires, and ability to fix bugs quickly for developers. 

It’s not just about the technical ability, however. Having a problem solving approach, tackling projects with a growth mindset, and being able to communicate with people and explain your reasoning are all characteristics that employers look out for.

What are common qualities and skills employers look for in job candidates?

Our team aims to customize career support to what the student or graduate needs support with, which could range from:

Interview practice: Build a clear storyline and personal brand, and be able to talk about yourself professionally.

Application quality: Gain strategies to not just apply for positions online, but to engage with the search process. Learn how to set up informational interviews to talk to people at various companies to get a referral.

Networking skills: Get more comfortable with networking, which is going to be a key part of your job search. We try to alleviate nerves with strategies that make it easier. For example, if you’re not comfortable going to big events and talking to a lot of people, then we provide tips on one-on-one outreach or coffee meetings. Learn to build relationships and identify possible mentors.

Continue growing your technical skills: Continue to polish your portfolio, solve algorithm problems, or practice Python. We provide resources and websites that facilitate this.

Time management: There are many things to manage during a job search. Developing your skills, networking, applying, interview prep, coding challenges. We sit down and talk with you about how to streamline your workflow. What are ways that they should reformat their week? We coach a balanced approach to job seeking, networking, and continued skills growth.
