Immersive, Targeted Approach to Career Transition
BreakLine Tech is designed to help you pivot into your career in technology. The program provides a combination of in-depth discussions with industry leaders, classroom learning with distinguished faculty, and onsite visits with top tech companies. You will get an inside view into leading organizations while building your professional network.
BreakLine works closely with participants from the moment they are admitted – from resume reviews to sourcing relevant roles to interview prep. All admits are also showcased in our online BreakLine Talent Portfolio, which enables our partners to contact them about open roles. These conversations continue during and beyond the program. The BreakLine team sticks with you every step of the way.
We will run four 10-day BreakLine Tech programs in 2018. If you are transitioning before May 2018, we encourage you to apply for our January program. Interested applicants who are transitioning after May 2018 can fill out an application for the BreakLine Talent Portfolio. Our team will then help you determine the best program for your separation date.
