Help Students Nail Technical Interviews.
Help tech students launch their tech career—as a Technical Interview Coach. As a coach, you’ll work with students enrolled in CodePath’s Technical Interview Prep course, helping them practice the data structures and algorithm questions they’ll be asked in interviews with top tech companies.
About the Course
Acing Interviews, Landing Top SWE Positions
CodePath’s Technical Interview Prep course is a 10-week, virtual class taught by professional engineers. In the course, students practice solving challenging algorithmic problems so they’re prepared to ace coding interviews for internships and jobs at tech companies. Students attend lectures where they learn practical technical interviewing strategies, practice mock interviews aloud with peers, and receive direct feedback from industry professionals. Students also have access to resume reviews, behavioral mock interviews, help searching and applying to internships and jobs online, and guidance for navigating career fairs including access to our Emerging Engineers Summit. In short, we help students to receive as much practice as possible with common questions, approaches, and solutions.
How it Works
Coaching the Interview Process
As a Technical Interview Coach, you’ll be paired with a group of 3-6 students for the duration of the program. In each class session you’ll facilitate a 1-hour virtual breakout room where students will practice their technical interview skills together.
Coaches are industry professionals who have experienced technical interviews themselves, and are passionate about empowering students in tech to succeed. As a coach, you’ll facilitate discussion amongst students, help students build comfort and trust, give hints and support to allow for better understanding of concepts, and provide feedback to help students improve. CodePath will provide you with all the resources you need to succeed: facilitation strategies and icebreakers, problems and solutions to go over in breakout rooms, and a technical interview strategy that we teach students.
