General Assembly welcomes local employers, startups, developers, and community partners to meet expert-trained, job-ready candidates from General Assembly’s Web Development Immersive program in Rhode Island. Join us to check our their capstone projects, share job opportunities at your company, and connect with the Rhode Island tech community.
In 12-weeks GA graduates are trained as Full-stack Web Developers skilled in:
-Ruby, Rails, Node, Express, React;
-Git and Github;
-Problem-solving, planning, modeling, and maintaining applications with client-API architectures;
-Relational databases (PostgreSQL) and NoSQL databases (MongoDB);
-Project planning (wireframes, ERD, user stories) and Agile workflow
How it Works
Our intimate networking environment is ideal for getting to know potential hires on a deeper level, going beyond a cursory resume scan. The concentrated meet-and-greet format will allow you to:
-Review and discuss candidates’ portfolio projects.
-Chat about about their work process, competencies, and experience during the program to gain insight on how they tackle challenges, perform under pressure, and collaborate across teams.
-Find the right cultural fit for your company with informal, one-on-one conversations.
-Make meaningful connections with top talent you can hire for current and future opportunities.
GA candidates can bring diverse professional experience to your team. Many of them are looking for junior-level roles aligned with the skills they just developed at GA, while others are suited for mid-career, management-level opportunities. Our developers are interested in learning about paid opportunities on a full-time, contract, freelance, or internship basis.
