Admission Process

What you can expect when you join GenSpark

Application

The first step in the process is to submit an application. There is no commitment at this point. Our recruiters will use your answers to determine the best program for you. Put your questions and which course you’re interested in the additional information section.

Follow Up Call

At this point, if your application meets the minimum criteria and we have an active cohort, you will receive a 20-minute follow-up call from one of our recruiters. The recruiter will ask you some questions, explain the GenSpark program, and understand which of our upcoming cohorts would be the best fit for you. A recruiter will usually reach out to qualified applicants within 2-3 business days, so check your emails and phone calls for our response.

Interview

Before you join GenSpark, you will have a technical interview to ensure your ability to succeed at GenSpark. The technical interview is approximately 45 min and administered online.

Assessment

As the final stage in the recruiting process, you may get an online technical assessment through AI Glider or iMocha. This assessment may not be given to every candidate, but it serves as another checkpoint on your ability to succeed at GenSpark. The assessment will be of your current knowledge, so you are not required to learn new material for the assessment, but it would help to study up on what you already know. Your recruiter will share more information on the assessment through the interview process.

Receive an Offer

Congratulations! At this stage in the process, you will get an offer to join GenSpark. Before you can join, you must sign an employment agreement, complete your onboarding paperwork, and pass a drug test. Once that is complete, you will be ready to join GenSpark and learn from our top-notch instructors!

Begin Training

Once all of your paperwork is completed, you will begin your training! You will be introduced to your cohort peers, your instructors, and all support staff that is invested in your success. Training length depends on your program.
