How we prepare you
In a world of skill training programs, Generation takes a different approach to help you succeed. Generation instructors and mentors get to know each student and are there with resources, tools, and information if a student encounters a barrier.
Instructors and mentors at Generation aren't just teachers, they're coaches who stand by their students through successes and challenges.
Right resumes open doors to new exciting opportunities. At generation, we not only provide learners with career accelerating opportunities but also guide them to create effective resumes to set them up for success.
By conducting mock interviews, then providing real-time feedback and coaching, the Generation team ensures that all graduates feel confident and prepared to interview. These allow our learners to get ready to face real life interview situations with confidence in a controlled environment.
After graduation, mentors and instructors continue to check in with alums, providing support with the job search and advice for continued success even after learners get placed. Our mentors and instructors perform well-being checks for all placed candidates and further support if they face any challenges on the job.
