Alumni Virtual Career Chat: Technical Interviews 101 for Computer Science

May 12, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm

Please join us for a virtual conversation in our Career Chat series entitled “Technical Interviews 101 for Computer Science”. Virtual career chats are a casual, low-stakes way to learn relevant career-related information from the experiences of St. Olaf alumni, friends of the college, faculty, staff, and employers in a variety of fields.
This session is particularly relevant for computer science majors and students interested in computer coding jobs and internships, but students from all majors and academic year levels are welcome.
We will speak with two recent alumni who have been on both sides of the computer science interview process:
–Justin Pacholec ’18: St. Olaf alum and current software engineer at Microsoft
–Elijah Verdoorn ’18: St. Olaf alum and current software engineer at WeWork
This session will present an introduction to the interview process used by many technology companies. The session will also have content appropriate for students actively in the job search process, including proven tips on finding a technical position on short notice, strategies for networking with alums, how to leverage technology companies that have had experiences with Oles in the past, general interview preparation, and how to make yourself visible in your discipline.
