Frequently Asked Questions

 
Will NexGenT place me in a job?

While we do not place individuals in positions, we do walk with them throughout the entire job search process, making sure they have the tools such as resumes, cover letters, social media presence, and the training for networking and interviewing. Employers will want to meet and interview you in person. We will help you understand the process, what to expect, and how to handle it. In addition, we do have a new and quickly growing employer network where we can help students get introductions to employers.

How soon can I apply to jobs in the program?

It’s best to have some projects and a good resume to send out before you start applying. You will have a solid foundation to start applying to IT jobs when you are about 2/3rds done with your program. Throughout your program, we have weekly content that will help prepare you for applying to jobs.

Will someone help me with my resume? (cover letter, LinkedIn, interview, etc)

Absolutely. Your Career Success Coach will work with you on your resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, mock interviews, and more. You will continue to work with your Career Success Coach on each until it is considered employer ready!

What is the Employer Network?

The NexGenT Employer Network is composed of leading enterprise employers from the private and public sectors, as well as recruitment firms that specialize in IT and cybersecurity. NexGenT students that qualify are invited to register for the Employer Network and, once registered, are then shared with employers and recruitment firms that are currently hiring.

How do I qualify for the Employer Network?

In order to qualify for the Employer Network, you must complete your Career Milestones, including having an IT-focused resume approved by a NexGeNT career coach and completing a practice IT interview.

What happens once I qualify? How do I register?

Where is my resume shared? To which Employers? Which positions?

When will I hear back after applying to the employer network?

You will only be alerted if/when an employer expresses interest in your resume. We will do our best to provide you with timely feedback, but due to the volume of candidates and employers in the network, we cannot guarantee a response unless an employer specifically expresses interest in your resume. Once an employer expresses interest in your resume, your career coach or a NexGenT recruitment specialist will reach out with details regarding the next steps.
