Basic information about the Eskwelabs Alumni Referral Program for Data Analytics Bootcamp Analysts

What is the Eskwelabs Alumni Referral Program?

This is an esk-clusive referral program that we provide to our Data Analytics Alumni. The Referral Program will send you a referral bonus of P1,000 when a friend is admitted and enrolled to become an Eskwelabs Data Analytics Bootcamp student.

What’s the background history?

We previously did a test to see if we want to launch a larger referral program, and the Alum Referral Program is a part of that: We already noticed that many successful Fellows and Analysts are referred to by previous alumni. So as a part of our mission to increase access to data analytics learning opportunities, the Eskwelabs Referral Program encourages and rewards people for spreading awareness of the Data Analytics Bootcamp, starting with our alums.

Technical information about the referral program

Who is eligible for the Referral Program?

Currently, we are only making this available to Data Science and Data Analytics graduates (alum!) as referrers. However, anyone can be a referee. In order to count towards the referral bonus, the referee must be accepted and enroll in a data analytics cohort and was previously not a part of any paid Eskwelabs program. The referral must be made at the time of admission, and not after enrolment.

Please note: In the small chance that your friend receives a competitive full-ride scholarship, no referral bonus is applied.

Participating in the referral program

How do I participate in the Referral Program?

Only Eskwelabs Alums can give referrals right now. In order to participate in the Referral Program simply ask the candidate to go through the regular admission process. Inform them to sign up for Cohort 4 via the “apply now” button, and you can also encourage them to start with the free prep-course that comes with their online application.

At the interview stage, we will ask a standardized question, “Are you referred by any Eskwelabs alum?” Please note, we will reach out to you for recommendations and to understand how you know them i.e., through work, school, or socially, and your assessment on their readiness.

How many friends can I refer?

We have no limit on the number of people you can refer.

How will I get the referral bonus?

Our Admissions Team will reach out to you for your bank details. Your referral bonus will be transferred to your account once your friend completes the program.

The referrer and the referee

Can I see more details about the current status of the friends I have referred to apply for the Bootcamp?

If you'd like to know more about your friend's status, we encourage you to reach out to them directly and support them in the application process. Let’s cheer them on!

Remember to ask them to mention your name during the interview stage. You may also contact us at alumni@eskwelabs.com.

What if they have questions about the Bootcamp?

As an alum, you don't need to answer all their questions. The Eskwelabs team is organizing informative events where they can attend and know more about the admissions process. We will post these public events in our social media.

You can also share the Program Primer with your friend. They can also book a 1-on-1 chat with us via Google Meet.
