How does Premium Academy Help Developers?

Here is a closer look at how our Premium Academy helps developers interested in international jobs:

🤝Developing your interview skills

🗒Improving your online professional profile 

🔓Giving you access to exclusive content

Improving member’s interview skills

Interview classes are our most famous service, and for a good reason!

Prep interview classes create an environment that simulates a real interview to prepare you for what you will face in real life. You get feedback on how to answer the most common questions and advice on how to best showcase your skills and experience. Interview classes improve candidate’s language skills and boost their confident.

Sessions focus on both behavioral and technical interview questions. We hold two classes a day (Monday to Thursday) at 4 am and 8 am Pacific Time (PST). 

1.      Behavioral Interview Questions

Generally, behavior interviews are about checking if the candidate fits the company’s culture and if he or she has the soft skills they are looking for. They provide concrete examples of how your skill and experience relate to the position you want.

So, in each behavioral interview prep session, your instructor will bring up subjects related to HR and cultural fit. You’ll be exposed to common questions you might get in an interview. In the process, you will also learn how to apply techniques that will help you better phrase your answers. One example is the STAR method.

2.      Technical Interview Questions

Technical interview focus is to check if the candidate has the technical skills needed for the job. Recruiters will want to know about your methodology (how you got your answers) and how articulate your skills. Questions will also assess your knowledge of the industry. As well as how would apply your skills in an actual workplace situation.

During technical interview practice, your instructor will bring up subjects like Live Coding, Whiteboard or Q&A. This provides you with a friendly environment to try possible answers and get instant feedback.  

3. English for interviews and work

Our English courses helps you improve grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation related to job interviews. Common content covered during those sessions are:

✅Writing a grabbing LinkedIn summary

✅Using “power verbs” for resumes

✅Writing a memorable cover letter

✅Learning how to talk about past difficulties 

4.      Our sessions are as close to an actual interview as close can be

VanHack Premium Academy offers 40+ hours of live interview practice class sessions each month. Our instructors present questions related to international job interviews and engage candidates in discussions and exercises in each session. That way, we provide an experience as close as possible to an actual interview.

5.      Extra Materials

Each session is recorded so you can go back and assess your performance. You can access these videos and other extra materials to help boost your interview skills.

Profile Review

Your profile is the first interaction potential employers will have with you and should receive as much attention as any other aspect of your job search.

If you are a member of VanHack Premium Academy, you can request a review of your profile. Our experts will send you complete feedback highlighting areas for improvement, and share some valuable tips to make your profile stand out.
