YYC Lighthouse Labs Employer Speed Dating

Calgary, Canada - Oct 17 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Price: Free


We know hiring a Jr. is MORE about fit than skill, but it's tough to make a fit decision based on a quick skim of a resume.

Our Employer Speed Dating event is a new spin on things - a chance to jumpstart your interview process by meeting a large number of our Web bootcamp students in a time efficient manner. Our top students are often identified during this event, and it's not uncommon for our students to get offers before graduation.

Process:

Employers will be stationed at tables and given a note sheet which includes the names of the students they will be meeting and a space for notes. Employers will keep their position while students rotate between the employers.

Each meeting will be ~7 minutes in length, with a 1 minute warning before a rotation is made.

Schedule:

  • 5:30 - 5:45 pm Registration
  • 6:00pm Take your places!
  • 6:00 - 7:00pm Speed Dating!
  • 7:00pm Networking with students and alumni with refreshments provided.

All of our students are available to start as full time Jr. Developers OR you can start them in an internship-style position, for a minimum of 2 months (avg. 3-4mo) and a minimum of $500/week.

Our Community Manager, Ralph Gonzales, will be able to answer any questions you might have about Lighthouse Labs, and our Career Services Advisor, Chandler Davis, will arrange follow-up interviews with our students.
