Title: “Career Opportunities That We Offer”
We have two different types of career opportunities that we aim to prepare our students for, Train-to-Hire and Traditional. These opportunities are provided to students through our partnership with various technology company partners, and in your initial career counseling session we will discuss which option fits your needs and goals best.
Our train-to-hire partners are IT staffing firms whose clients have a need for tech talent, often with multiple positions open for the same role – typically larger corporations and Fortune 500 companies. Train-to-hire partners that we work with do not always require a degree or prior IT field experience, however, many do require at least an associate's degree for consideration.
This process is mainly driven through our partner, who completes the sourcing, evaluation, hiring, and training to prepare new hires to work with their clients. The graduate is then hired as a W-2 employee under the IT staffing firm, instead of the client company to the staffing firm.
In most cases, our students have signed 2-year contracts with the staffing firm, and will undergo extra training, which may include more certifications and is paid for by the staffing firm. Once assigned to a specific client, rarely will a contracted employee be assigned to a new client company. Note: the contracted train-to-hire employee can be “converted” at any time to a full-time employee of the client company.
Our traditional employment partners are employers or companies of multiple sizes that require technical talent. These companies may be expanding operations, backfilling empty tech roles, or requiring additional entry-level positions. Requirements for this type of career opportunity can vary by client, though often a bachelor's degree is a strongly preferred qualification to be considered.
The career services team works to continually develop our employer partnerships, and is also looking to develop a program for internships and/or apprenticeships, which may help to open up this opportunity for those students who may not possess a Bachelor’s degree.
Note: Students who accept a traditional job opportunity will work directly with the hiring company to determine compensation and all other terms of employment.

Title: “Career Services FAQs”
When will I get access to Career Services
You'll have access to resources as soon as you enroll, starting with our proprietary self-paced course, Prepare Yourself for the Job Market. 1:1 support will be available to you once you have completed 75% of your bootcamp program and for up to 6 months post-graduation. We're even here to provide support once you’ve moved on to your job opportunity - alumni are eligible for up to three 30-minute sessions with one of our Career Advisors.
Are Career Services included with the cost of the bootcamp?
Yes! All our bootcamps include access to Prepare Yourself for the Job Market, our self-paced Career Services course, as well as profile- and resume-building support, interview practice, and employer partner opportunities, where relevant.
Is a job guaranteed after completion of the bootcamp?
A job cannot be specifically guaranteed, since hiring is a personal transaction, we have no control over whether a student/graduate chooses to accept a job offer once it's received. However, we do take responsibility to empower you with the knowledge, tools, and support necessary to get a job in the industry. We do offer a money-back guarantee* if you are unable to secure a qualifying job offer.
*terms & conditions apply (link the text to the below)
(Create a hidden landing page so the terms and conditions aren’t tied to CSUP or a bootcamp specifically.)
Do you have employer partners (and will you introduce me to them)?
Our list of employer partners grows every day. Our goal is to have more available job openings with partner employers than graduates, so we will work to connect you with employers regarding appropriate opportunities as often as possible.
Can I get a job without a degree?
A college degree is a standard benchmark that employers have used to narrow the candidate pool for decades, so it doesn’t hurt to have one. However, in today’s tight labor market, more employers are having to adjust the criteria they use to disqualify people from their hiring process.
