Lighthouse Labs Employer Speed Dating

  • Hustle Co Unit B25 - 6020 2nd Street SE Calgary, AB Canada (map)

Hosted by Lighthouse Labs

Your FIRST chance to meet our latest class of Web Developer bootcamp students!

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.


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.


  • 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.
