How does career counseling work?

Break Into Tech students are welcome to schedule monthly 1-on-1 career counseling sessions for personalized coaching. We'll start off by talking about your goals and how to stay on track to make them happen! As you make progress in your lessons, we'll help you keep the big picture in mind, stay motivated, and answer career questions.

You can meet with the same counselor or mix it up and meet with a variety of counselors with different backgrounds in tech. After your orientation, you'll have a chance to read counselor bios and sign up for your first session. 

After you choose a session time that works for your schedule, you'll receive an email confirmation that includes the Zoom link to your meeting. Hang onto this email - it's how you'll join your session when the time comes. First timers, I'd suggest reading through How do I use Zoom and running the test to make sure your audio and video are working properly.

You'll receive two email reminders before your counseling session - we're just so pumped to meet you, we can't help but remind you a few times. :) 

However, we know that sometimes life events get in the way, and you might need to cancel or reschedule.

As a courtesy to you and your fellow students, here is our cancellation policy:

You’re welcome to cancel or reschedule your session anytime between the day you book it and up to 6 hours before your appointment. Just click the ‘Change/Cancel Appointment’ button in your confirmation email. This will let another student schedule during that time.

Anything closer to your appointment time will be considered a no-show, and two no-shows will result in your counseling privileges being suspended for 30 days. We want each student to get the 1-on-1 time and support they need to succeed, so we appreciate you letting us know when you can’t make it. Hope to see you at a counseling session soon!
