Career services

 - hero desktop img 2
At The University of Western Australia Boot Camps, you are supported by a dedicated career services team of experienced professionals. This team will help prepare each individual to be “employer-competitive” through a series of career readiness milestones. Although we gear you up to be employer-competitive upon completion of the program, building a career is hard work and can only be done by you.
A career-building experience developed with your goals in mind
We know that in order to achieve real results, it’s up to the student to give it their all. That’s why our career services team is focused on empowering individuals to use their skills and talent to find the job that is right for them. We can’t do the heavy lifting for you, but we can prepare, guide, and encourage you as you put your best foot forward to land your dream job. The career services team will help you build the job search skills you need. Throughout the program, we will provide you with all of the tools to become employer-competitive and stand out in the market. We will get you ready to meet employers and ensure you are marketable through a dedicated profile coach and career director that will work with you throughout the program. While we cannot do the work for you, we are here to amplify your efforts.
  • A member of our career material advisor team provides you with individualised feedback on job search materials such as your CV, GitHub, portfolio, and LinkedIn account.
  • Your career director helps you navigate the job search process. They will begin hosting open office hours shortly after the start of the program. As the end of the program As the end of the program approaches, your career director will begin more frequent 1-on-1 meetings with you to discuss your goals and prepare you for the job search.

In addition to 1-on-1 career assistance, you will receive CV and social media profile support, portfolio reviews, interview training, job referrals within our active employer network, virtual tech panels, and more.

Employer-ready vs. employer-competitive
We have talked with hundreds of employers, and we know exactly what they are looking for in top candidates. These conversations have led us to identify that there is a difference between being employer-ready and employer-competitive. Employer-ready: An employer ready candidate has completed the minimum of what is expected to enter into a typical job application process. This candidate has strong professional materials, yet struggles to make it past the screening stage of most job application processes. Employer-competitive: An employer competitive candidate has positioned themselves for success through networking, company research, excellent professional materials, and a strong demonstration of their commitment to ongoing learning. These candidates are proactively seeking and pursuing the jobs that they want with effective outreach and follow-up strategies.
