Coach - For Bootcamp Students + Graduates
At Career Karma, we’re on a mission to connect the world’s talent to their next opportunity. We’re currently searching for coaches to help empower our community members.
Career Karma is a community full of career changers, parents, veterans, and students in the process of exploring and pursuing careers in tech. Our coaches are Career Karma community members who are just a few steps ahead of the community members they’re helping. At CK, we understand that switching to a new career takes many steps and we believe in the importance of spreading good career karma.
Coaches help community members create roadmaps to start learning, give insights into how to get accepted to job training programs (bootcamps), and share advice on how to make the most of a bootcamp experience to ensure students graduate and find a job in tech.
