Partner Power Hour: Hiring Software Engineers – An Employer’s Perspective

March 1 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm


In this session, you will hear from a couple of engineering managers what we are looking for when evaluating people graduating into the field of software engineering. We will provide an insider’s view of what we need to see to know that you will help us improve our processes and systems while delivering business value. We will guide how you can best illustrate your skills and potential, and will suggest areas to invest in yourself now and in the future.
