Our Tech Connect event will put you in virtual conversations with recruiters/alumni/engineers working at innovative technology-focused companies. If you want to work in tech, this is the event you can’t miss.
SEE WHICH ORGANIZATIONS ARE ATTENDING AND RESEARCH THEM
DRESS CODE: Casual but neat. No need to wear a suit - but, remember that how you dress is a reflection of your professionalism, even virtually. Put your best foot forward!
View the list of employers attending.
Learn more about these companies by visiting their websites, following them on LinkedIn and social media, and check out how they are mentioned in the news.
Create a list of 10-15 employers you would like to speak with. You may not immediately get to chat with an employer, so make sure you have a list of alternatives to join.
You will be in a virtual room with company representatives. This is your time to ask your questions about life and work as a developer.
Be thoughtful - the quality of the questions you ask can set you apart. Just ask the Tech Pros who attended our Software Practice Interview Night.
Think about questions that will help you decide what kind of company you want to work for. For example: Big or small? Remote or on-site? Startup or corporate? Individual or group work? Who do you want as your end-user?
