This is a resume-free zone! The focus should be on meaningful conversations about the work and life at the companies represented. Seek answers that you won’t be able to find on the internet! Employers will have access to available student resumes through LionSHARE.
Tech Connect 2023 will have two parts.
Part 1: I’m an Engineer- Ask Me Anything!
This is an opportunity to hear directly from industry professionals and ask them anything about their backgrounds, careers, goals, and more! Want to know how they got to the positions they’re in? What it’s really like going through the interview process? How to make yourself stand out to recruiters? Students should submit their questions in advance through event registration.
Part 2: Roundtable discussion
Each registered company will sit at a round table. Students will be invited to join the company representatives at their table for discussion. The employers present will be eager to discuss with you their work, team projects, achievements and challenges, their career trajectory, and the culture of the company.
