Have you found yourself in a position where you lack the skills and experience to move as quickly as you like in your career? Most junior developers find themselves in this position, and it can quickly become disheartening and challenging. Perhaps, you are looking to work for a different company as an intermediate developer, or maybe you are trying to work ahead in your career at your current company. Oftentimes, junior developers are unable to leverage their current skills and experiences to get ahead. With that said, Launchpad was designed to help you get where you want to go, and transform your development skills from a junior level, to an intermediate level.
There are three key ways to which Launchpad is able to kickstart your career, and launch you forwards. So, let’s dive right in.
Hands On Experience
Launchpad wants every student to understand the process of software development. While each company may have their own processes, they generally follow a similar pattern and use the same functional groups. Through the Launchpad program, you can learn how to build software in a collaborative team environment and how to utilize each functional group to promote maximum efficiency.
Every project will have to consider tech and business logic. By understanding this, you become better equipped to manage stakeholder requests . These skills are integral to becoming an intermediate developer. Thinking outside the scope and understanding more components of a project will ensure that your hireability drastically increases, and your ability to work ahead in your career is not hindered.
Everyone knows that there is a buzz in the technological industry, and software development companies are no exception. Software development companies are busy, so it becomes challenging to have staff take time out of their days to mentor junior developers. This is why Launchpad offers mentorship. We will have a dedicated mentor to help show you the way. You will be matched with one of Vog’s employees. Each meteor is highly regarded, and considered an expert in their filed.This mentorship will allow you to have a front row seat in the development of high quality projects.
Landing the job takes more than skills and experience. While your skills and experience open the door to a job, it isn’t what will get you the job. Your personability and interview skills are what land you the job. In an interview, the hiring agent is seeing if you can fit into the company. Because you applied, they already know that you are equipped to handle the role. Here at Launchpad, we understand the interview process, and are able to help you learn the In’s and Out’s. This means that we can help you with the behavioural and technical interviews. This is an asset to all our students.
We have connections with industry leaders, so we are here to help you land your dream job. Your success is our success, meaning we always work to help you succeed.
Launchpad is a software development curriculum that aims to get all its students hired. Launching your career from junior to senior is our priority, and will continue to be our goal throughout the years.
