The Academy Phases

The program is highly selective and extremely rigorous and goes well beyond any other training program.

We keep on track of each intern, and it’s individial progress, that allows us to estimate how easy they can adapt and learn, and their performance with a client.

The selection process

Tech Screen

About the Phases

We have three interviews: Once after the first month, then at the three months, and one before being allocated with a client.

We also fo one on ones and get feedback from its mentors or people who have collaborated with them, ando we deliver it with action items they can apply as soon as they know.

If we find that the persona isn’t improving to be ready for working with a client, we cut them off.

During this stage, interns improve their communication skills. We help them to build their resume. We set mock-up interviews to see if they’re ready to get a job or there’s any feedback to apply.
