Come get a first look at our Web cohorts! This is a great opportunity to engage early and meet our grads.

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 Interviewing 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. Due to our cohort size, you may be meeting students in pairs. Each meeting will be 7-10 minutes in length, with a 1-minute warning before a rotation is made.

Schedule:

  • 6:00 - 6:30pm Registration

  • 6:30 - 7:30pm Speed Interviews

  • 7:30 - 8:00pm Mingle more with our students (optional)

Light refreshments provided during the networking portion.

All of our students are available to start as full-time Jr. Developers OR you can start them in a paid internship-style position, for a minimum of 3 months (avg. 3-4mo) and a minimum of $600/week. Our Vancouver Career Services Coordinator, Hilary Bate, will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about Lighthouse Labs, and arrange follow up interviews with our students. Spaces are limited!
