Ironhack Workshops

 

Job profiles change dramatically. But for employers it is not only a challenge to bring new talent into the company. The skills of the existing workforce must be trained to meet the ever-changing demands of digital transformation. This is something that Ironhack anticipates and trains.

They are a top-ranked tech school offering intensive bootcamps as well as part-time programs in web development, UX/UI design and data analytics. The coding bootcamp has trained over 3,000 graduates. Beyond Miami, Ironhacks has an international presence in Europe and Latin America through nine campuses. It currently connects its graduates to over 700 employers, including companies like Facebook and Uber.

Not only do they teach the most in-demand tech skills, but also they focus on facilitating job entries with 1on1 career services, expert talks and more to help kick-start a career in Europe's biggest tech hubs. That was exactly why Ironhack asked Cogs to do a series of workshops with their UX/UI graduates.

"About 50 percent of the roles out there will be meaningfully transformed in the next couple of years. That trend of how do you reimagine the roles your employees are currently working in and how do you help get them to that next step reinforces our core idea of connecting talent with employers."

Ariel Quiñones — Co-founder Ironhack

In a workshop series tailored to the needs of Ironhack's UX/UI-Design graduates, I share my experience in Product Design Recruitment. I try to analyze the business value of design and the current key players in the market, discuss the need for different skill-sets/roles and new trends in the design job market. 

The sessions are highly interactive and relate to the needs of the graduates, followed by individual discussions. The very positive feedback from the participants, from Ironhack and the networking after the event are indicators that the sessions serve their purpose: giving the graduates deep insights into the design industry from a recruitment perspective and to make them fit for the demands of a vibrant market.

 

Design in a Post-COVID-19 World

With the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I offer the workshops as remote video sessions. A special focus is now on the future of the design industry in the current global crisis situation. What are the possibilities for the graduates to find access to suitable jobs in a very unstable economic period? What are the necessary steps to make the best possible use of the current paradigm change to find a sustainable new challenge?

The two-hour workshops have a 30-minute lecture followed by a 90-minute Q&A session.

Key Takeaways

  • Design trends are further revolutionizing the entrepreneurial and corporate ecosystems in tech
  • Emerging technologies will demand new hybrid roles
  • There is no answer as to whether it is better to work in the innovation lab of a management consultancy, in a start-up or in an agency - they are all places of a dynamically changing industry from project to product
  • Localize opportunities from project to product
  • Differentiate between cross- and deep-discipline competences
  • Pitch to industries with relatively high demand (retail, delivery, finance industry, entertainment, healthcare)
