Career Series Ep 1: Top 5 Tech Interview Tips

We’re really excited to announce our brand new video series the Code Institute Career Series. We meet with industry leaders regularly to come up with new industry-led ideas. After taking their feedback on board we decided on a video series. Our aim is to help inspire our students and people who are passionate about tech – like us. This week we focus on the technical interview.

The Story Behind Our Career Video Series

We invested in a state of the art video room recently, so it made perfect sense to put our video skills to the test. Our staff agreed that creating a short, regular video series would be the most beneficial to our students. Episode One ‘5 Tips To Nail A Technical Job Interview’ covers everything you need to know about what to expect in a technical interview.   
Our motivation to create this series was simple; we’re invested in our students and our graduates, and we want them to nail their tech interviews so they can land their dream jobs.
If you want to launch yourself into a career in tech or you’ve just begun your first tech job, we hope that our video series will ease your industry transition every step of the way. Our in-house tech experts keep us on our toes so you can expect cutting-edge video content to help you overcome career challenges.
We love feedback so let us know what you think. If you like what you see then why not share our video or give it a like? Watch episode 2 of our career series here.
