Preparing for Careers in Technology with the Loeb Center
with Emily Griffen, Director of the Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning

The field of technology is growing and changing every day, meaning career opportunities are plentiful, but sometimes hard to navigate. How do you translate your academic computer science work into a resume that tech recruiters will respond to? What are the best sources for internships and jobs? How do you prepare for a coding interview? What kind of roles are there beyond software engineering? Emily Griffen, director of the Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning, will answer these questions and more, and give you concrete action items and resources to help you tackle the career development process in this field. This talk will be especially helpful for interested first year students and newly-declared CS majors.

Refreshments will be served beginning at 3:30 in Room C209
