Oh April! We could not wait for more time to share the great results from the last month. First and foremost, con-gra-tu-la-tions to all 43 VanHacker tech talents hired abroad last month! You folks rock! It makes us very happy to announce that 16% of April’s new hires were women and that we helped 3 tech talents from Ukraine get jobs abroad last month (since March, we helped 12 Ukrainians get their new job abroad).

We also celebrate the newbies…, more women signing up, many candidates completing their profiles, and so much more. Our mission is to help you achieve your career dreams. We want to help as many tech talents as possible get excellent international jobs. Every little step counts, and we do the victory dance for the big and small achievements.

New tech talents joining in

A total of 16,215 new candidates joined our platform in April. YAY! You are all very welcome, and we are here to assist you in your journey to an international career. Of all the new faces participating in our community, 1,161 are women!

Did you know friends help friends get hired abroad? In April, 706 people came from a referral link, and the best news is that when a referred friend gets hired, we pay CAD 500 to the lucky person who referred the talented dev. Who’s the lucky person in this case? 😁

Candidates old and new were very busy last month since our hiring partners held 1,914 job interviews in April. So keep an eye out for good news in May.

About our prep sessions – O.M.G., this is something we are thrilled to share: some of the feedback we got from the candidates who had sessions with us! Such a motivation booster to the ‘Avengers’, also known as the Preparation Team:

Advisor’s counseling was extremely useful in my interview. They made me feel more confident and encouraged me to focus on my strengths and not my weaknesses.

I think the takeaway for me from the Interview Practice session is seeing how interested the facilitator was in my preparedness and all the feedback and suggestions for managing my time when interviewing. It goes to show how determined the team is in making sure that candidates do well. My facilitator made sure to touch base with me on all the important questions and areas of interest that potential employers are likely to focus on.

My Interview Advisor was super helpful and understanding. They put up with me despite my nervousness, and made sure to check all questions I had even if they had nothing to do with the interview I was practicing for. The advisor was very sweet and helpful, I’ll definitely recommend it because of them!

Having someone experienced to give me feedback on how to approach certain questions has helped me hugely in preparing for the interviews.
