Alumni Resources

The Talent Services team is dedicated to supporting App Academy's alumni through career coaching, recruiting and job placement, networking, and events.

Our commitment to alumni

App Academy graduates are part of a diverse and powerful network of successful Software Engineers, who continue to grow and facilitate one another as they navigate the ever-evolving Tech field. Our Talent Services team is also here to support our alumni throughout their entire journey and connect them with resources they need to achieve their career goals. These resources include programs that aim to connect alumni around the world with each other and with App Academy.
Career Coaching
We offer high-impact, comprehensive career coaching that prepares you for your job search and supports your overall career growth and management. From one-on-one coaching sessions to tips on how to negotiate an offer or prep for an upcoming interview, we’re here to support you.
Recruiting and Job Placement
If you are an experienced alum and currently on the job market, our Alumni Recruiter can help get you aligned with partner opportunities. We partner with companies across the country who are looking to fill mid-senior level roles.
Networking and Events
We're planning a number of exciting events on and off-campus to help you remain engaged with both App Academy and our network. Alumni are encouraged to attend these events to network with friends and build connections with App Academy in a more meaningful way.

“After the 16 weeks, I was able to get a fully remote frontend developer role paying 90k+ one week after graduating. It seems like it’s almost too good to be true but App Academy really does prepare you for a job!”

Events & Workshops

App Academy provides a variety of events intended to foster connections within our alumni community. We encourage alumni to participate in these activities and workshops in-person or virtually.

Hey Y’all! I’m Jennifer and I’ve been career coaching for 15+ years in the bootcamp, higher education, private practice, and outplacement spaces. I’m really looking forward to supporting a/A alum in their next job search. I partner with job seekers through the self discovery and job search process to find well-aligned work.
