Starting in 2021, NTC created Tech Coach to connect our Tech Professionals to our educators, students and job seekers to create work based learning opportunities and coaching in career services. We know that tech education is key to growing our tech workforce – however, we also know that educators, students and job seekers need awareness, experience and guidance on all latest and greatest in tech innovation to form professional development pathways to land a future tech job or launch a new tech career today.
NTC is actively seeking Tech Professionals to volunteer their time and talent to Tech Coach. Below are some current ways that you can coach our educators, students and job seekers – virtually – making it so easy to volunteer!
This type of interview is conducted to collect information about a job, career field, industry, or company. It is not a job interview. Instead, it is an opportunity for a student to speak with a Tech Professional working in a field he or she would like to know more about. Through an informational interview, students can find out about a specific type of job, a person’s career path, or details on an industry or company.
This type of interview is for the Professional to review the student’s resume and create a “mock” environment by interviewing the student for a tech entry level position. This interview calls for the Tech Professional to give immediate feedback to the student for improvement.
Tech Coach Sessions
NTC will hold a “Tech Coach” session once a month – check the calendar for upcoming sessions. This is a zoom meeting that is hosted by a Tech Professional on many different topics, for example: Do’s and Don’ts of Interviewing to What are the different industry certifications and their pathways.
So listen up, Tech Professionals! We are looking for a few good coaches to volunteer their time and talent to our students – who are our greatest gift to the future!
