For one afternoon, top tech companies will takeover Lerner in order to connect with Columbia Computer Science & Computer Engineering students. Our Tech Connect event will put you at the round table with recruiters/alumni/engineers working at innovative technology focused companies. This event is designed from the ground up as an opportunity to learn about product innovations and projects from the company representatives living the work every day. You will also learn about company culture, career pathways, and of course, internship and full-time job opportunities in computer science/engineering roles. If you want to work in tech, this is the event you can't miss! Event Format: The event will take place in two sessions. The first wave of students will enter at 11:00am and end at 12:30pm. WThe second wave will enter at 1:30pm and end at 3:00pm. You will be asked which session you want to attend when you register for the event. You will only be able to select one option. You will then receive a ticket with your entry time on September 13th. You must show your ticket on the day of the event to enter. Round table discussion: Each registered company will sit at a banquet size round table. Students will be invited to join the company representatives at their table for discussion. Discussion topics might include current company innovations, projects and responsibilities of engineers within the organization, opportunities for new hires. Students are encouraged to bring lots of questions for the various company teams and are invited to share resumes where appropriate. To make sure students have the opportunity to talk with multiple organizations, students will be required to rotate tables at regular intervals.
