During the training boot camp, trainees move through different phases. With a short duration of 12 weeks, the boot camp can only be intense.
Throughout the first few weeks is where all the new content emerges. Trainees get exposed to such a high volume of information in such a short period and without breaks that they need to quickly adapt and format their way of thinking.
Consequently, many doubts arise: “Will I be able to complete all tasks on time?”; “Am I good enough?”; “Am I competent?”; “Will I be able to finish the training boot camp?”; …
During this period, there are some phases of frustration, demotivation, and stress. Therefore, our team of career coaches works with trainees to help them manage emotions, deal with frustration and anxiety while teaching techniques to improve time management. Most of the time, they simply need positive encouragement to boost their confidence.
Like Dalai Lama said: “Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.”
The continuous contact with the trainees promotes a good and trustworthy relationship, which becomes a facilitator in this process. We want them to evolve and work hard to increasingly do better, but we also want them to feel at home, to feel that they have a safe haven.
In our boot camp, we also provide soft skills sessions covering topics such as communication, customer orientation, leadership, among others. These sessions support the trainees personally and professionally by sharpening their ability to cope in any given situation. Be it a customer meeting, a project presentation, or a job interview.
When approaching the boot camp final stages, we begin preparing trainees for the job interviews. How does this work?
We schedule mock interviews to work with them on different scenarios, focusing on several aspects: how to communicate and the best way to do it, good posture, positive attitude, stress management, expectations management, and other relevant points for growth and improvement.
