Career Support At Codesmith
Codesmith’s career support prepares residents for every step of the software engineering job search process. During the program, residents receive guidance on building a resume and online profiles that best highlight their technical skills. Career support workshops, led by industry experts, prepare residents for each step of the interview and hiring process - our team shares insights into best practices for phone screens, technical interviews, and salary negotiations. Codesmith career support is for life - our team is here to support graduates whether they are on their first job search, second, or beyond!
Resumes and Online Profiles
Residents attend lectures covering resume best practices and are taught to craft their experiences in a way that is both technically sound and authentic to them. After the program, graduates are able to continually book one-on-one support sessions with a Career Support Engineer to make adjustments to their resume as needed.
The team also reviews best practices for online job platforms. Career Support Specialists review each resident’s LinkedIn profile to ensure they are representing themselves and their experiences in a way that will make them stand out in the job market. Many residents receive numerous inbound leads from potential employers before even leaving the program!
Residents attend multiple lectures to review interviewing best practices and then apply their knowledge through our mock interview and networking day events.
Before leaving the program, residents complete a mock technical interview with a Codesmith alum who is currently working in the field. Residents also attend “Networking Days” - where they are given the opportunity to interview with multiple alumni who can refer them to open roles at their company.
Negotiating Your Offer
Codesmith holds weekly workshops to support grads who are preparing to negotiate their salaries. The workshops - led by an expert in the field - cover topics such as how to approach conversations around negotiations, and understanding all aspects of engineering compensation, such as stock options and sign-on bonuses.
Graduate Network And Lifelong Support
After the program ends, residents have the incredibly valuable opportunity to schedule one-on-one support sessions with our Career Support Engineers.
In addition to the Career Support Team, the Codesmith alumni network continues to support one another. Codesmith is proud to foster a supportive and active community both during and after the program. Alums can connect with one another through the Codesmith Alumni Slack, weekly post-grad workshops, and in-person alumni events. Codesmith alumni actively support one another by sharing job opportunities, holding job prep workshops, and referring one another to open roles.
