Hacking the Tech Hiring Process: WCT's Opening Doors Career Readiness Launch Event
Thanks to the internet, there’s no shortage of information on the hiring process and what it takes to land a job. But what does a top applicant actually look like from the perspective of some of the largest tech names in Canada? How can you hack the tech hiring process—and move successfully into your first corporate role—during a global pandemic?
On Thursday, January 14th, WCT will be joined in conversation by a panel of Human Resources and talent acquisition experts from Microsoft, Rogers, IBM, AWS, and Shaw Communications to answer this question, and more.
Megan Woerlein, HR Leader at AWS; Neve Twomey, Senior Talent Acquisition Leader for Technology and Digital at Rogers; Hailey Bain, Campus Talent Acquisition Partner at IBM; Christine Calvert, Director of Talent Acquisition at Shaw Communications and Dave Dowling, Account Manager Recruiter at Microsoft will be answering questions about:
- The recruitment and hiring process
- Acing a virtual interview
- Adapting to a corporate work environment
- Upskilling to get the job you want, etc.
Register today for the complimentary Hacking the Tech Hiring Process Webinar, to be held on Thursday, January 14th at 3:00PM (EST).
