Our mission is to give students an alternative campus where they can learn from experts, interact with fellow makers, and get hired for part time gigs and full time jobs.
Here are the answers to some of the questions we frequently get asked about CoCampus.
What is CoCampus?
CoCampus is a co-learning platform for creative and productive students. Students work on a variety of projects and we offer industry mentoring to help you with your projects, part-time gigs to build work experience while you learn, and full time jobs with good product companies.
Why should I work on projects?
When you work on projects, you don't just solve problems, but you also define them too. You get the opportunity to build real world skills, which is precisely what makes you employable. In addition to that, you build a good portfolio
How do I start a project
Just post it to CoCampus and start logging regular progress.
What projects should I work on?
Any kind of project is fine, but we love to see projects that have real world applications. This gives us the opportunity to help you launch it. See this example
What are Decks and how can I learn from them?
A Deck is a collection of resources curated by an industry expert that aid students to master job-specific skills. These resources can be books, videos, online courses, text, or even research papers. You can access them for free by making an account.
How does mentoring work and how can I apply?
Industry experts on CoCampus invest their time and effort in you. They mentor you through regular discussions, code reviews, general advice, etc. This project is meant to be your capstone project, which will ultimately get you a good job.
Mentoring is available for everyone, but since mentors are investing their time in you, we have a precondition that you must be vested in your project - show us some progress by logging regular updates.
How much do you charge?
Our charges vary on a case-to-case basis, and every expert has their own terms. We recommend experts to charge 10% of a students salary, only once they get a full-time job. If you don't get a good job, you don't need to pay a single cent. We only get paid if you do.
Some of our experts also do pro bono mentoring, in which case you don't need to pay anything at all.
