Careers In Technology — Landing a Software Engineering Gig, Part 4

Interested in a software engineering internship or job? Start here, and start now! The Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning is hosting a three-part workshop that will get you up to speed on how recruiting in tech works, how to strategize a successful job search and how to master the technical interview. The workshops will help students maximize the early fall internship and job recruiting timeline in tech, and also provide invaluable information and preparation for earlier stage computer science majors and prospective majors.

This event is part 4 of a four-part series and will focus on mastering the technical interview through mock interview practice and feedback. This is critical input for those seeking to apply for software engineering internships or jobs during the fall 2018 recruiting cycle, but can serve as a helpful preview for those earlier in the process. Part 1 provides an overview of the recruiting process and critical action steps for those seeking to apply for software engineering jobs during the fall 2018 recruiting cycle, part 2 is a technical resume write-in following Google's resume and interview workshop and part 3 is an introduction to to the ins and outs of the technical interview, what to expect and how to prepare.

Presented by Harith Khawaja ’19, program development intern for Careers In Technology, Loeb Center and summer 2018 intern at Lyft, along with Emily Griffen, director of the Loeb Center and advisor for Careers In Science & Technology.
