At Juno, we’ve got ambitious goals and we’re looking for driven, results-oriented, and friendly people to help us achieve them. We are hiring a Career Success Specialist! This role is brand new to Juno and you’ll be joining the Outcomes team at an exciting time. As a team obsessed with making sure our graduates get great results, we are growing, trying new ideas and intensely focused on making sure Juno grads continue to stand out.

Opportunity

As our Career Success Specialist on the Outcomes team, you own the job seeker journey & experience for bootcamp students and graduates. The journey begins with you collaborating with the Admissions team to identify and enrol high potential applicants. You will do this by reviewing applications, Kira applicant videos and resumes, collecting instructor feedback, and occasionally calling or meeting with applicants. Based on the available information, you will provide recommendations on which applicants receive acceptances.

The other half of your job will involve ensuring graduates are prepared for the job search after bootcamp. You’ll do that by facilitating career services events & workshops, meeting with graduates one-on-one on a weekly basis, and providing resume, cover letter and job search advice. Working closely with the Manager of Career Services, you’ll develop career curriculum for Career Labs, the career development program for recent bootcamp graduates. It’s important to know that we measure everything. You will track job search data, and do whatever it takes to keep engagement levels of job seeking graduates high, finding out what motivates each individual you work with. You’ll help them quickly land full time jobs as web developers, while creating an exceptional job seeker experience.

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for candidates with 2 to 5 years of experience in career advising/coaching, recruitment, HR or leadership development. This is a target-driven role that’s perfect for someone who is results-oriented and really cares about meeting metrics. Facilitation and public speaking experience would be an asset. You have worked with talent/job seekers from diverse backgrounds, and have knowledge of tech startups and labour market. Without a doubt Juno is the place for you if you care about skill-building, technology and contributing to a team that really cares about what we do every day. And, perhaps not surprisingly, we don't we care about things like degrees or diplomas. We care about finding great people to join our team, and then helping them to reach their full potential!
