2. How to whiteboard through the typical coding challenges that make up 50% of most technical interviews

The number of opportunities for software engineers is booming but to get a mid level position and above requires a special kind of preparation.

In this interactive workshop we cover the five key skills that you must have in order to succeed in the job search including how to effectively whiteboard through the tough coding interviews.

The session will help you:​

• Identify your career and role priorities - for example, are you most interested in a career as a backend or frontend developer, within an established corporation or a new start-up?​

• Understand and prepare the five key skills that you must have in order to succeed in the job search for software engineering positions

• Understand how to approach the job search so you find the job that is best suited to your skills and aspirations.​

• Whiteboarding - working through coding problems on a whiteboard is a crucial part of most interviews. You'll see how to effectively whiteboard and work through problems live in pairs

See you at what promises to be an unmissable evening for anyone pursuing employment as a software engineer
