AWC: The insider track to working at Amazon, Tableau, Chef and Zillow
July 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
AWC, Amazon Bound, Chef, Tableau and Zillow are excited to present a facilitated panel discussion taking an intimate look at working at Amazon, Tableau, Chef and Zillow. During this event we will explore how these local, sought-after companies differentiate themselves in how they recruit, what they look for during the interview, how best to prepare for an interview or a role at one of these firms, desired “hard” and “soft” skills, company culture and what it takes to not only be successful as a team member, but also, what will help you rise to the top of the resume pile when seeking a role with one of these companies. This is a very special event, providing an “insider” perspective of each of these companies. Although this is not a traditional “career fair”, we will have recruiters and representatives from the firms with us that evening to share their experiences and discuss open roles.
Tableau will graciously host us at their Fremont headquarters. Vouchers for parking will be provided. This event is capped to the first 50 RSVPs.
