Some companies our graduates work at:
Marketing roles are extremely diverse and range from design & creative to acquisition directors and CMO’s. Marketing is all about communicating with the consumer and creating a steady stream of revenue. If you have experience in non-tech marketing, branding, advertising etc. this is the direction for you.
Sales roles are in direct contact with the consumer, constantly engaged and result driven. They are the true warriors of the industry, achieving the business goals and creating growth. If you have experience in sales, entrepreneurship, advertising etc. You just found your switch.
Creating new business relationships, growth opportunities and revenue streams, these roles are in constant demand in the tech industry. These roles requires excellent eye for changes, ambition and strategic understanding of the business. If you have experience in sales, growth, acquisition etc. This is your place.
Tech companies are designed to be fast and agile, the department that makes sure everything actually happens is operations. The department roles vary from project managers, COO’s and heads of operations. If you have past experience in operations, production, logistics etc. This is your department.
Result focused yet able to multitask this is what project managers need to be on a daily basis. Turning plans into reality while manoeuvring between different departments and roles. Project managers can come from different backgrounds, as long as they can prove they have the skills to get the job done. If you have experience in project management, product management, production, music industry etc. This is the role for you.
Develop costumer relationships, create the best user experience, grow the community and positive sentiment. Customer success is an excellent entry point to the tech world, relying mostly on personal skills and knowledge of the ecosystem. If you have experience in the majority of client facing roles and good people skills, this is your way in.
This was a brilliant course to be a part of, you learn from a variety of different people who are all well versed in their respective specialisms and you get the foundational tools to become effective in any area of tech. Your fellow sojis will become your immediate network and you will learn skills and content that will give you the self-confidence to feel you can switch into tech, and anything else your interests take you to beyond that. This course met, and then surpassed my expectations! Very well done to all of the Jolt team on this immersive experience!
The SWITCH course through Jolt is highly recommended for any individual that wants to make a career change into #Tech. The structure and delivery of the content is well thought out, relevant and taught by industry professionals. I am proud to be a graduate of Jolt and wish my fellow Soji's all the best in their new careers!
The course was a fantastic insight into the world of tech, which jobs are out there and how my existing skills learned mainly from the world of hospitality would transfer into a brand new sector. Fantastic teachers who are full time tech professionals themselves really helped, and everyone was so enthusiastic. My LinkedIn and CV look unmeasurably better now than when I started the course, and I'm going to feel a lot more confident going into interviews. I'd really recommend this course for anyone wanting to get into tech, or refocus their existing career.
For the full time course you’ll be studying from 9 - 5pm with wellbeing and lunch breaks from Monday to Friday. There will also be optional evening events to keep up your momentum. The part-time evening program is scheduled for evenings on the same two days each week for 16 weeks. There will also be optional evening events on separate days for this course.
Our course is taught live, by professionals still working in business today. This means the workshops are designed to be completely up-to-date with the times - you’re learning as they’re doing. The curriculum is reviewed on a regular basis to add and remove topics based on the current job market.
You’ll receive a certificate of completion once you’ve finished the course.
There are two options. You can study the intensive, full time, bootcamp and finish the course in 5 weeks. Or the second option, for those who want to study alongside other commitments, is the part-time evening course which takes 21 weeks to complete.
You’ll be studying alongside a small group of like-minded professionals with ambitions to join the tech world. We curate each cohort to make sure everyone on the program can learn from and add value to each other.
Each cohort is made up of 18 students. We keep the groups small so there’s ample opportunity to ask questions, interact with each other and reap the benefits of a more tailored program.
The bootcamp costs $2520, with 10% off with an upfront full payment. To secure your place, we ask for a $130 deposit, with the balance due 7 days into the course. If you cancel until then, you’ll be refunded fully.
First, fill out the application form, starting on this page. Tell us why you want to switch, and the value you think you can bring to the class. This will be followed by a scheduled phone call with one of our admissions counselors, to discuss your goals. You’ll cover career goals, work history, and dive deeper into your application form. Lastly, you’ll submit a case study test - where you’ll present a solution to a business problem that we present.
The official deadline is the course start date, but we can’t guarantee space until then, since our courses tend to fill up a few weeks before.
We recommend having a degree and 2 years commercial experience OR 4 years commercial experience for joining the bootcamp. The main thing you need is an interest in the tech industry and the motivation to learn.
All our bootcamps are taught live, remotely.
You’ll need a good wifi connection, a laptop, a space where you can focus and your mic and camera on. That’s it - we’ll do the rest!
In addition to career coaching throughout the course from tech veterans from AirBnB and LinkedIn, our career services team will support you in finding and landing your next role - we keep in close touch with several tech companies and can introduce students during and after the bootcamp, on a case per case basis.
We take pride in our graduate success after completing the bootcamp - with a many of them being hired by tech companies after graduating. Our students are now working at a variety of tech companies and big tech brands, including Lemonade, Gett, Monzo, Microsoft, Amazon, and Deskforce.
We include career coaching sessions during our bootcamp, and keep in touch after you graduate. We check in, help out with intros, and assist you in your job search.
