HOW TO WORK WITH US

42 trains highly qualified engineers with real-world skills since 2013. Our unconventional hands-on approach to coding education is recognized worldwide. With 5000+ alumni, 42 students are trusted everywhere, from Fortune 500 companies to small startups and everything in between.

HIRE OUR STUDENTS & ALUMNI

42 Wolfsburg is found on the vocation to train and deliver the most skilled experts to the tech world. Our peer-to-peer project-based learning method prepares students to bring value to all contexts, anticipate and answer to your company's needs with:

  • Strong work ethics & self-management: time management and self-management are critical for success at 42 Wolfsburg. The flexible learning pace pushes our students to build self-discipline to complete their work, a crucial quality for the workplace.
  • Resourcefulness & agile analytical thinking: our project-based learning approach puts students in an environment where they have to solve rigorous problems creatively. Resilience & initiative are nurtured at 42 because our students know their solutions have to work to move on to the next levels.
  • Leadership and collaborative capabilities: the 42 curriculum is project-centric. Our students learn the importance of efficient communication, conflict & bottleneck resolution very early on because they know that they have to work together to succeed.
  • Confidence in judgment & competency: our approach to mastery differs significantly from traditional coding education methods. To move to the program's next levels, our students need to have complete command of the project, its associated skills, and their software has to function 100% of the time.

The 42 Wolfsburg rigorous curriculum and approach ensures students are ready to apply their expertise with the highest attention & scrutiny of processes to mission-critical areas in all industries and fields.

YEAR-ROUND RECRUITING

The no courses, no classes approach of 42 eliminates the restrictions of traditional academic calendars. Our students are ready for internships and employment throughout the year.

42 Wolfsburg's students are encouraged and required to complete two internships during critical intermediary periods of their academic career:

  • First Internship: for 4 to 6 months (approximately after 9 months of studies)
    Our students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a professional environment after mastering the first part of their training.
  • Final Internship: for 6 months at the end of their training
    A gateway to the job market and our students' final step towards growing their expertise before starting their careers.

With 42 Wolfsburg, your organization gains access to highly trained candidates. We also make sure that your organization's needs are understood and matched with the ideal candidate.
