Nope! This program is geared towards beginners and people with no previous experience in coding. If you have some experience or knowledge, well that is a plus.
No, coding requires logical thinking but no math skill.
The bootcamp will be 6 months long. The first 5 months will take place online via Zoom. The last month of the program you will be flown to Israel, and study at a designated classroom at the Experis Academy offices in Tel Aviv.
We are currently in the process of creating the first international cohort of the program. As the program itself is dependent on the locations of our students, we will know the exact time of the daily studies closer to the start date of the program.
The group will meet on Zoom – 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, with mandatory attendance. Students will be expected to meet all course deadlines, utilizing both in-class work time and their time outside of class. For this reason, our program is not suitable to be combined with a full-time job.
Our first priority is to reach out to our Taglit-Birthright Israel alum to offer them this unique opportunity; however, the door is open to all Jewish adults between the ages of 18-32.
Yes, you certainly can!
The program is mainly focused on bringing young fresh talents from abroad. However, if you are not currently working or involved in the hi-tech industry in Israel and you think you are qualified – you are invited to apply.
If you want to do the program while in Israel prior to the pre-planned month of studies, you can do so at your own expense and responsibility. The program will be tailored to the needs of the students living abroad. Therefore, if you wish to come to Israel beforehand, you will have to attend to your own housing, social needs and living, and still participate in the studies via Zoom.
You will take part in an Onward Israel program, which will provide you with housing in Tel Aviv, a special tailor made educational and social infrastructure, and additional components, meant to make your landing in Israel softer and easier.
You will not be paid during your studies; however, it is important to note that not only will you not have to pay for taking the course, but the course is valued at $15,000 USD.
As you gear towards the end of the course, you will begin your process of seeking work. Your portfolio, which you will be working on throughout the bootcamp will assist you in your interviews. You will be referred to interviews upon graduation and assisted in between interviews, in case you don’t pass them, with interview preparation, improvement of skills and more.
During your two years of work, you will be responsible for your living arrangements and living expenses. During the last segment of your studies in Tel Aviv, you will have time to search for a place to live, open a bank account, and tend to other social and logistical requirements you might need.
If you want to stay in Israel further, you will be able to discuss the option of continuing working for your company or perhaps search for another position in another hi-tech company. Aliyah is also something to explore if you will be interested.
