Testimonials

Onramp volunteers and candidates highly value their mentoring experiences

Some of the best candidates out there!
“It’s been very rewarding to see the candidates grow their technical skills and confidence levels. I’ve learned how to be a better leader, mentor and trainer in the process.”
Fletcher Hartshorn
Founder
Forerunners
Great advice on how to improve my skills
“My mentor was very encouraging. It was great working with someone who also took an unconventional path to coding. He had advice on skill building and helped me realize how to treat my previous experience as an asset.”
Lara Samuelson
Software Engineer
The rewarding part
“I’ve been in the industry 18 years and I always wanted to give back, this is a forum where I can do it with structure. If I can share my knowledge and make life easier for folks, especially people from challenging situations, why not.”
Mountu Jinwala
Engineering Manager
Mentor
Amazing experience
“I got more out of this one mock interview than I had from my last three ‘real’ interviews. My mentor threw a lot of great questions at me which allowed me to identify my knowledge gaps. She had great feedback and was kind and supportive.”
Nathan Zavala
Software Engineer
A 360 degree view of all my projects.
This tool lets us create a month’s worth of content in one week for our clients, allowing us to spend the rest of the month engaging and optimizing. It’s very secure and boosts engagement.
David Harris
Founder & CEO, Socially
Changed how we work entirely.
Before Elevate, everything was all over the place. There was no single place for our social media efforts. Now, we know exactly what each campaign or post is delivering, when it went out etc.

Tech Talks and AMAs

Have a presentation that you’ve given to colleagues, a class or at a conference?  This is also a great way to let candidates know what skills they need to work at company like yours or simply build awareness for new technologies they might want to consider learning on their journey to landing a job.
