At Kenzie Academy, you don’t have to go it alone. In fact, our Student Services and Placement teams exist to guide and support you as you pursue your dreams.

We're here to support you

Your future starts today with Kenzie Academy

Our Student Services team works to help you stay on track to advance your career.

A Student Services Manager will work with you 1-on-1 to identify your goals, coach you along the way, and celebrate your wins. They’ll also partner with you to address any needs or obstacles you might face so you can better reach your goals. 

Our Placement team works with you during your time as a student and beyond. 

This team will walk you through a curriculum focused on how to job search, interview, and develop your career. Part of this process also includes connecting you with potential employers and job openings while equipping you with the interpersonal skills to be placed in a great role.

Kenzie's Student Services & Placement Teams provide:

Support

At Kenzie Academy, you can take advantage of mentorship and coaching programs to make sure you’re job-ready with the skills you need to succeed. We offer a few different mentorship programs. Our #MakeTheHire program, for example, pairs Kenzie students with tech professionals who give advice about the job search, review student resumes, and more. 

Accountability

We work with you to meet academic, attendance, and conduct requirements. A Kenzie Academy program is a big commitment, so we’ll be there to encourage and keep you accountable as you master coding. You’ll have a dedicated Student Services Manager to work with you to stay focused and meet your requirements.

Personal Growth

Kenzie Academy programs can be a catalyst not just for academic growth, but for personal growth, too. Kenzie staff members are dedicated to supporting you on this journey. As a student, you’ll have 1-on-1 meeting times with facilitators and coaches to help you get the most out of your education.

Exclusive Events

Kenzie students don’t just learn to code, they become a part of the industry. One way we introduce you to the industry’s movers and shakers is through AMAs (Ask Me Anythings). At these events, you get facetime and have a dialogue with top industry experts from companies like Airbnb, VC firms, Netflix, and many more.

Job Readiness

We take job readiness seriously here. We’ll provide you with assistance on the pathway to graduation and job placement while helping to minimize life’s obstacles during the process. Our Student Services team works with you to build job readiness savvy through networking, soft skills training, and mock interviews.
