KodeGo, an online tech boot camp and the latest spinoff of 917Ventures, is partnering with Jobstreet Philippines, one of Asia’s leading online employment marketplaces, to help address the skills mismatch between job seekers and hiring companies, particularly in the field of Information Technology (IT).
KodeGo fills the gap between open tech positions and the lack of technical skills among aspiring tech employees through an online tech boot camp. This study program allows students to learn how to become software engineers, web developers, and data scientists. Once they graduate, the students are matched with KodeGo’s partner companies.
KodeGo also offers a “Study Now, Pay Later” program as part of its advocacy. Students pay for the boot camp only when they are hired.
“JobStreet has always been a titan in the recruitment and job placement space, so they are an ideal partner for KodeGo. Through this collaboration, we can give our boot campers bright career opportunities and contribute to building a future-proof digital nation,” said Glenn Estrella, Head of Portfolio Growth for 917Ventures.
Through Jobstreet, hiring firms and companies can easily source candidates from KodeGo for Web Development and Data Science. KodeGo graduates are also given a special tag to get noticed faster.
“We, at Jobstreet Philippines, remain committed to bringing new tools to help our local job seekers achieve their career goals. This partnership with KodeGo will bring us closer to our mission to give a job to every Filipino, which has been our focus since day one,” shared Philip Gioca, Country Manager for Jobstreet Philippines.
