Today is Friday and it is the hiring day for the current senior class. It is one-day off for us, the junior class, but I decided to come in to check it out anyway.
The hiring day started around 2pm and ended around 6pm. It had two sessions, student presentation and “speed dating”. In the student presentation section, each group presented their group projects. In the “speed dating” section, each student occupied a work station and the employers rotated to talk to the students. Overall, a decent set up.
Oh, they ordered too much for dinner so a bunch of junior students including me got our very first free dinner at Hack Reactor. Oh yes, free food is always good.
Personally, El and I worked on the database sprint in the morning and I spent the afternoon cleaning up my blog posts. Our own hiring day is only six weeks away and we need to step up our game.
