Are you a recent Tech graduate?
With the summer internships coming to a close and School right around the corner we have gathered 15 of our top tech and software companies looking to hire candidates.
What is Speed hiring? The method, much like speed dating, allows both the interviewee and hiring company to assess the potential match of candidate to a corporation. It also exposes the applicant to a large number of hiring companies in a short timeframe, thereby maximizing the chance of finding a job. The total length of the interview will only be 3 minutes in length, and candidates can expect the interview questions to be challenging.
Speed Hire Tips
Following the tips below can help make the most of the short meeting time:
- Be Polite: shake hands with the recruiter when introduced, and make sure to thank everyone for their time and consideration. Ask the recruiter for a business card so it’s possible to follow up with a thank you letter.
- Bring Documents: a large number (10+) of copies of an up-to-date resume should be brought to the meeting. This can also include examples of work products that demonstrate the quality of work a candidate is capable of creating.
- Do Some Homework: if at all possible, obtain a list of the employers attending the session, and do some research on the company and / or the types of jobs they are trying to fill.
- Prepare an Elevator Speech: an elevator speech allows the job candidate to get their point across quickly. These speeches last for 30 seconds and contain roughly 100 to 150 words.
