Delivering life transforming placements is what we do. It’s what we have been doing since 2007. Placements typically begin in Week 12 and take a couple of weeks. Recruiters usually have a few rounds which takes time.

The best that we can do is line up 3 interviews for you

Your own merit is key in being able to convert an interview into a job offer

You must score a minimum of 70% on assessments to qualify for placements


Most companies today examine a candidates' Github profile as part of the evaluation process. Learners get to showcase their expertise on Github, which is an online repository to store all projects and assignments which will be assessed and verified by us.

Truth be told, interview prep begins on Day 1 and happens everyday.


In a league of its own

Candidates who complete our Data Science & Machine Learning Immersive successfully, will get interview opportunities with leading recruiters. We can do what we can do, which is generate interview opportunities on a best efforts basis.

Converting an interview opportunity into a job offer depends on a candidates' own merit

We DO NOT guarantee placements

Think about this…Investment Banking is the most difficult and hyper competitive area to break into and our placement record of 90% (below) since 2007 speaks for itself. Our methods have stood the test of time. That’s why we are confident of being able to replicate our placements success for Data Science and Machine Learning as well, where recruiters are facing an acute talent crunch.

So how do we deliver placements? We do much more than spruce up your CV, soft skills training, interview prep and create a repository on Github. Surely we do all this as well, but go far beyond and tap into our network to generate interview opportunities for candidates. Then you must step up, deliver your magic and make it count!

We do not rely on head hunters. Over the years we have developed strong contacts with recruiters and our network is growing all the time. In fact we have so much confidence in our placement capabilities, that if we can’t deliver 3 interviews then you get a no questions asked money back. That’s quite epic to say the least!

Delivering life transforming placements is what we do. It’s what we have been doing since 2007….and our track record today is truly in a league of its own.

Accessible from any location

Offers job placements

Money back guarantee

Every time we send your CV to a recruiter for placements, we’re putting our brand on the line. Such principles make it critical to attract the best talent with an appreciation for the professional, cultural and operational dynamics of the industry.

Assessments are designed to equip candidates for job interviews and the corporate world. Each assessment is conducted only after plenty of practice in order to maximise student success. This is how assessments are graded:

30% weight is given to in-class Assignments

30% weight is given to Industry Projects

40% weight is allocated to Capstone Projects

Learners must score a minimum of 70% on each individual assessment and overall

After completing our Course, students will be able to pursue careers in any of the following roles:

Data Analyst

Data Scientist

Python Developer

Machine Learning Engineer

Assessments: First of all, learners must score a minimum of 70% on assessments which will be graded by our instructors, to be eligible for placements.

Interviews: Generating even 1 interview requires a great deal of fight and effort from our side. Our role is to create opportunity, but you should be crystal clear that converting an interview into a job offer depends on your own merit. We do not guarantee placements. Subject to performance on the Course, we can generate a maximum of 3 interviews on a best efforts basis. That’s a lot of interviews. Do you back yourself to convert?

Recruiters: Every candidate who signs up for our Immersive is doing so because they want to commence a career in the field of Data. So for someone looking to make a start and enter this industry, there is no room to pick and choose recruiters. All job interviews that we send you for utilise the skills that we have provided on the Course. If you’re looking for a new start that can make your career go places, you’re certainly in the right place.

Offer: When you get an offer, you will be expected to pull out from the placement process. Congratulations will be in order then and we wish you all the very best for a high growth career ahead.

It’s pretty simple. Our experience and track record in delivering transformative job placements is unmatched by any training provider in the world. If we can’t deliver 3 interviews then you get a no questions asked money back. There are a couple of basic requirements for the money back guarantee to kick in:

Students should score a minimum of 70% on assessments as graded by our instructors

Attendance must be a minimum of 95% throughout the Course

All projects should be submitted before the deadline

Candidates who complete the program successfully will be awarded a certificate. Having said that, we encourage candidates to rise above the mind set of “collecting” certificates. What matters is that top recruiters hire from us regularly. That in itself is the best certification there could be!
Placements typically begin at the end of Week 12 and can take anything between 4-12 weeks. Recruiters usually have a few rounds which takes time. Therefore, patience is key.

Hackathons: At School of Jobs, hackathons are an integrated part of the learning experience and offer a unique opportunity to test your mettle against other peers. They will typically begin after the 12 week training period has ended. It goes without saying that learners will be mentored by our Instructors every step of the way.

Doubt Clearing Sessions: Even though our training is Immersive and learners will get personalised attention from our instructors, there will additional doubt clearing sessions held on Saturdays. The same will be conducted via online live webinars and learners can email questions before hand.

Candidates will be placed in major tech hubs across the country. We encourage candidates to be geographically flexible to the best extent possible.

If you are an international student and would like to explore how School of Jobs could deliver for you, feel free to drop us an email. Our recruiter network is expanding all the time and we may well be able to assist you with placements in your home country as well.

Industry projects are given at the end of each week to re-in force concepts covered with practice. For example, during deep learning week, students will do a project on deep learning and so on. Capstone projects are undertaken at the end of the Course and bring together elements covered over the entire course. They are more comprehensive and take some time to complete. Of course, our instructors are always close by to guide.
