About this event

In today’s fast-paced and challenging tech industry, it is a common situation that a developer with all the required preparation and credentials for a role, does not make it to the last round of their selection process.

After this session, you will understand:

  1. The importance of researching the company and job description
  2. How to integrate your elevator pitch into the "Tell me about your self" question
  3. The importance and various aspects of body language/ nonverbal communication while in an interview
  4. How to prepare a question for the interviewer that reflects your knowledge and understanding of the position and the overall company

Why is this common?

It is common knowledge that your poise, attitude, basic social skills, and ability to communicate are evaluated along with your experience, education and technical skills.
