[Contest] Software Hackathon, the New Career Fair for Programming Jobs
Sun, 26 Mar 2017
DreamCatcher is now rolling out a series of contests that helps bring
the best out from our young talents. The upcoming event is the
SOFTWARE HACKATHON titled HACK2HIRED, targeting final year students
and fresh graduates who are looking for high-paying programming jobs.
150 fresh programmers will be gathered for a fun filled yet exciting
contest to showcase their programming skills. Industry mentors will be
there to coach and guide participants towards completing their
software solutions they will build together in teams.
So... what has this got to do with jobs? Traditional way of graduates
seeking job is they try hard to please employers with your CV and wait
to be called for interview. In many occasions, they are left
disappointed for not even having a chance to be interviewed. Even in
interviews, some may not have a good way to demonstrate their skills.
Multiple Hiring Managers are brought to one location. The participants
code to impress employers and interact with industry mentors during
the "hackathon" - a much better way to showcase their talent. Hiring
Managers are there to spot the talents they want.
