Advance Your Professional Development.
Monthly tech talks by industry speakers on topics like open source, new frameworks, and issues pertinent to being an underrepresented person in tech. To provide continuous learning and offerings post-graduation, we are offering monthly alumni tech talks hosted by Hackbright and/or guest speakers. The tech talk topics range from Learning New Software (ECMA Script 6) to learning about how to Negotiate Your Job Offer.
Whiteboarding is held regularly at Hackbright Academy or at a local tech company. Graduates can work with engineering teams to help further their readiness for technical interviews.
ALUMNI STUDY SESSIONS
Alumni Study Sessions are held once a week in the Alumni Lounge and led by our Education Team. Graduates can continue practicing problems and developing their technical skills during their career transition with the support of the Education staff and other alumni.
ALUMNI PARTNER MIXER
The Alumni Partner Mixer is a way for Hackbright grads to continually push their professional development while making new job connections. You’ll mingle, make an impression, and gain some insightful pointers and advice from our hiring partners.
Stay Connected. Continue Growing.
The Weekly Roundup is a newsletter to the graduate community with information on events like meetups, tech talks, and conferences within the tech community, links to helpful articles and blog posts, and information to help the community stay connected to all things technology.
The Alumni Portal is a centralized website available for graduates from Hackbright’s Software Engineering Program. It is their one-stop shop to gain access to continuous career and professional development resources, job opportunities if they are searching for their next career step, information on companies, upcoming events (both in the community and Hackbright hosted), helpful articles, and general announcements. The portal is a place for Hackbright and our graduates to connect more with the whole alumni community.
We offer drop-in office hours in our Alumni Lounge for graduates to chat with our Technical Mentor. These office hours are designed to provide grads with additional support to discuss and answer questions they may have about topics ranging from project assistance, interview prep, practice whiteboarding, learning new languages, and more.
