How can I increase my chances of getting a job?
In order to land a job successfully after graduation students need to possess three important skills. Number one is technical skills and ability to solve technical issues with the help of different software. That’s the reason why our classes are 3 hours long 6 times a week for 6 months, because we want our students to excel in this field. The second criteria is resume. Students need to be able to provide a clear and appealing resume to potential employers so they could be invited to the interview. During the course we will be training our students on how to write their resume and how it could be improved. The third criteria is interview skills. Once students pass the resume review stage they will be invited for an interview by potential employers. The interview process will contain behavioral questions and technical questions. During the course our students will have the opportunity to practice and train for interview questions which will increase their chances to get hired. By following our instructions and working on these three crucial skills students will have better chances to land a dream job after graduation.
