Workforce Development

CanCode Communities’ programming goes beyond teaching computer skills and coding concepts. We partner with our trainees, helping them build compelling resumes and find the right job opportunities for them.

We’re not just a technology training school. We know the tech landscape is competitive, and getting hired requires more than coding skills. That is why, after graduation, we provide workforce development services that support our trainees until they are hired.

Through our employer network, we connect recent program graduates with professionals in the field, fostering networking and mentorship opportunities. CanCode also has a LinkedIn alum community and a monthly newsletter highlighting local job opportunities, many of which come directly through our employer network. Additionally, we have a workforce development professional on staff to help our trainees refine their resumes and get hired into a position that will launch their new tech career.
