What if I’m not applying for jobs or networking in Canada?

Yes, you can still join. However, please keep in mind the program is tailored to the job market in Canada. We can’t guarantee you’ll get the same results in other countries.

Can I still apply if I’m not a student?

How will I know this will work for me? I signed up for similar programs before, and I’m still stuck.

You are not alone. Most international students struggle in the job search and recruitment process.

What will I need to do to succeed?

You need to commit to doing your share of the work during the 7 days of the program.

We didn’t call this a Bootcamp for no reason. We can’t find your dream job for you. We are here to teach you what works, and to support you every step of the way. If you put in the work, and follow the steps we give you, we’re confident you will succeed.
