When: August 30, 4-6 PM (ET)
Calling all software engineers! Join us on Tuesday, August 30th for an afternoon of virtual speed networking with top hiring tech companies Columbus, OH. We'll pair accepted participants with recruiters for a quick 15-minute virtual call.
As we hand-select participants, check out some of the things we're looking for below. You do not need to be actively job hunting to participate. This is a great chance to meet with recruiters, put some feelers out, and see what kind of opportunities are out there!
(Please note that participating companies are still be finalized and the “Bonus Experience/Skills” section may change a bit. If you meet the criteria in the top two sections, please apply.)
We’ll ask you for some of the basics and a resume. Just be sure to hold the date and time on your calendar.
Don’t worry, we won’t match you with your current employer if they’re participating — they’ll never know you attended the event 🤫
We’ll pair you with any additional employers who are looking for a similar skillset. We hope to connect you with multiple companies, but there might only be one who is a good fit.
While we’ll do our best to schedule all your meetings back-to-back, they could happen at any time in the 4 - 6 PM ET time frame.
Each meeting will take place on a separate Zoom link, so it will be important for you to follow your schedule closely. Meetings will be 15 minutes with 5 minutes for transitions. Use this time to share more about yourself, learn about the employer, and build a relationship with the recruiter. Make sure to exchange contact info or LinkedIn connections.
NO! This event is focused on networking. You do not need to be actively job hunting. This is about building community and connections for the future.
No, your participation in the event will only be shared with employers you are scheduled with, and we will not pair you with your current employer.
We will pass along relevant information including your resume and LinkedIn profile. You’ll be able to share anything else during your 15-minute call.
While most will be actively hiring for software engineers, that might not be the case for all. Be sure to do your research in advance by reviewing their hiring page and really think of this event as a time to build relationships. Again, you do not need to be actively job hunting.
