If you’re looking for a job right now, it might feel overwhelming to hear news about the current state of the job market because of COVID-19. It can be tough right now, but there are certainly bright spots to be found. A career in tech can help you gain job stability in uncertain times, and while hiring has slowed, we’ve found that tech companies are still bringing new teammates on board during this pandemic.
In fact, we’re excited to announce that several of our alumni have received job offers in the past few weeks. The job search requires hard work and perseverance, so we’re taking a moment to congratulate these students on their new positions, and to recognize the efforts of our Student Success team in helping them learn the skills they need to land the job.
