New Graduate Services Job Seeker Support for Alumni in First Job Search

Graduating from Turing is a huge accomplishment! However, your Turing journey isnโ€™t complete until you secure your first technical job, and our team is here to continue to support you!

Calendar

The New Graduate Services Events Calendar provides information for upcoming group check-ins, guest speakers, and any additional events for job seekers.

Reading the Calendar
Events that are lead by Turing Staff or a Guest Speaker will be noted with ๐ŸŽฅ. You can expect these sessions to be guided.

Events that are noted with ๐Ÿ“† are times that meant to be used for student collaboration in the New Grad Services Study Hall. The zoom information for that room is pinned to the #employment-round-one slack channel!
