Praxis was a game-changer for me.
It challenged my belief that college was the only path I could choose to create a great career.
It showed me how to take charge of my education, and ultimately, my life.
It helped me learn how to get any job I want. It landed me a job at a startup in Silicon Valley and provided me with the support I needed to thrive.
Praxis showed me it's possible to become the best in the world in whatever I want.
If you're ready for a career development experience unlike any other, the next steps are:
Listen, we know application processes can be intimidating. But don’t sweat this. We don’t care about your high school GPA or how many clubs you were in.
Our aim is to get to know the real you – to understand what makes you tick, what excites you, and hear about your ambitions.
The first phase of the application includes basic contact info, a few brief questions, professional references, and a one-way video interview.
Our team reviews each application within 3 business days and issues a preliminary decision. Finalists are invited to conduct a video interview with our team. Within 1-2 weeks of interviewing, you’ll receive a final decision.
If you’re accepted into the bootcamp, first off, congratulations! You’re at the starting line of what we hope is one of the most rewarding periods of personal and professional growth in your life, to date. (We kinda envy you, honestly. It’s an awesome time.)
Between acceptance and starting the bootcamp, you get to dive into the program experience. We’ll introduce you to your new peers you’ll be completing the bootcamp with. You’ll also get access to the program portal and your pre-program checklist to complete before you start – this will set you up for success.
Want to dig a little deeper? Check out our FAQs.
The bootcamp is your chance to prove yourself (almost like an ongoing audition) – you’ll create content and projects to showcase your skills alongside your peers, attend workshops and one-on-one advising sessions, and get to explore different role types.
But it’s not a walk in the park. We cannot stress this enough – the bootcamp will challenge you, regardless of your skill and experience level at the start. So don’t take it lightly.
By the time you complete the bootcamp, you’ll have a strong professional portfolio full of projects. You’ll understand what it takes to succeed as a future startup employee. And, you’ll have developed a strong support group through your peers, program advisors, Praxis alumni, and experienced professionals you meet through weekly workshops.
During the placement experience, you’ll be introduced to a number of different companies and be given the chance to pitch yourself to join their teams. Our placement team will work closely alongside you through this process to help you determine which opportunities are the best fit for you and how to pitch them. During this phase, you’ll be racking up interviews, exploring companies, and putting what you created through the bootcamp on display.
By the time you win a job offer that excites you, our aim is for you to understand exactly what it takes to navigate the job market successfully. Not only do we want to help you win your first career opportunity, but for you to walk away feeling confident and prepared to navigate your career.
By this stage, you’ll have earned and accepted a job offer. We want to set you up for long-term success. So, throughout your first 90 days in your new job, our team will be here to support you as you make this transition. Whether that means helping you negotiate an offer, guidance through relocation, one-on-one and group coaching sessions, or even preparing a plan for your first 30-60-90 days on the job – our team will be with you every step of the way to help you start strong from day one.
Your journey with Praxis does not end when you get a job. In fact, your professional journey has only just begun. As an alumni, you’ll have lifetime access to our private professional community, our resources, Praxis workshops and events, plus all special offers available to bootcamp participants.
Wherever you go in the future, you’ll have a strong support community through Praxis – whether that’s changing careers, starting a business, launching a side project, or learning a new skill.
