So, are you ready to know more about all the new services? Great! Let’s talk about all the new benefits you can get with the premium academy private services and which option is the best fit for your career needs.
What’s new: feedback on international profile, individual mentorship, and tailored interview preparation
Camila Ferreira is our Premium Academy Community Manager and she explains that the new options are the result of extensive research that focused on what VanHackers needed to boost their international job-hunting. In analyzing feedback from our users, Camila and her team noticed that more personalized services were in high demand.
To meet our users’ needs for one-on-one services, three new options are now available:
- Mentorship for tech talents
- International profile consulting
- Hack the interview – personalized interview coaching
Regardless of the service you choose, with each one, you will have access to individual appointments and personalized consulting tailored to what you need to advance your international career.
So let’s see what you can get from each of the one-on-one new services!
Mentorship for tech talents
The mentorship was designed to help candidates get personalized guidance on their journey to a job abroad. What kind of technical skills international companies are looking for? What can you expect from an international hiring process? What are the cultural differences? Those are some of the questions a mentor can help you with.
So, are you ready to meet the mentors?
Let us introduce you to Fred Rego, he is one of the VanHack founders and has relocated to Canada over 25 years ago. He is an experienced strategist and executive and he will help you with everything you need to know about getting hired abroad.
We’d also like to introduce you to Anurag Srivastava. He is a data scientist, an educator who loves teaching and he’s been working in amazing bootcamps in Canada. Anurag will be your guide in preparation for all the technical requirements during the hiring process.
International profile consulting
To get a job abroad, you will need a strong international profile to showcase your experiences and highlight your strengths. The profile is literally the first contact companies and recruiters have with you. What about understanding how recruiters read your profile? You can now schedule a session with our profile advisor. You can choose to focus on your VanHack Profile, Resume, or LinkedIn Profile. It will also grant you access to one written feedback round after the meeting to ensure your profile stands out.
Fernanda Reis will be your profile advisor. She is a certified career coach and job search strategist. She served as a career transition support for 500+ people every year in Canada. Her approach is to have an authentic job search strategy to fit every client’s needs across the globe.
Hack the interview
You can book a preparation session with one of our specialists to get personalized and immediate interview practice. One of our most talked-about services is the interview simulations, designed to help you improve your interviewing skills, especially if you have an upcoming job interview scheduled. Now we are offering individual sessions where you can have guidance that is specific to what you need. This way, you can increase your chances of moving forward in your processes.
Keep in mind that you should be ready for at least two common types of interviews in an international hiring process: Behavioral and Technical. Although each category has its own uniqueness, in both of them the communication skills will be practiced, once this is the primary key for a successful job interview. You can choose the one that best fits your current need.
Again, let us introduce you to our specialists:
Priscila Assumpção is a leadership and communication strategist. She will guide you through the process of behavioral interviews (usually called HR interviews) and help you practice common questions used to assess your soft skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, interpersonal skills, as well as communication skills.
Now, if you need to practice questions that can commonly be used to assess the way you approach a technical problem, how you break it down and solve it, Anurag Srivastava will help you with everything you need to know about the technical interviews.
A lot of VanHackers have attributed their success in getting hired to the practice they’ve gotten on interview preparations so don’t miss the chance to get personalized assistance in preparing for this important part of the hiring process.
Which one is best for you?
We have room for different career needs. Both the subscription plan and the new one-on-one services were designed to help you prepare yourself and present your very best during the hiring process. So, which one is the best for you? That depends on what kind of assistance you need.
The subscription is a more complete package, in which members can get a written profile review, weekly group interview preparation (more than 40+ hours of practice a month), and boost communication skills at the same time.
But if you are seeking personalized service, tailored to your needs and what you need to do to achieve better results on your international job hunting, the one-on-one services are the best for your needs.
Both the subscription plan and the news services are going to be available to all VanHackers and you can pick what’s best for you.
