Our mission at Social Hackers Academy is to make education accessible to everyone and to provide our students with the real-life experiences and skills they need to succeed in the tech industry. Our program is designed to give you support in every stage of your learning and development. To accomplish this, we organised a Career Day where our students had the opportunity to meet with HR experts from different companies. The event was a great success, with 30 students attending and interacting with HR teams in a real-world setting.
We feel that activities like this are critical in preparing our students for their future jobs. Allowing them to connect with HR specialists allows them to obtain crucial insights into what companies seek in new employees. They also practice their interview skills and learn how to present themselves professionally.
The best productive 3 hours!
The Career Day event organised by Social Hackers Academy was an exciting and dynamic experience that brought together students and HR professionals from some of the top tech companies in the industry. The event began with an introduction by SHA, where we shared our mission of empowering our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the tech industry.
We had the pleasure of introducing the three companies that participated in the event – NN Group, Vodafone Greece, and Arhs Development. These industry leaders each brought a unique perspective to the event, with a team of HR professionals on hand to answer questions and provide invaluable insights into the hiring process. The students were eager to engage with these professionals and learn more about the exciting opportunities that these companies offer in the tech industry. It was inspiring to see the level of enthusiasm and passion that the students displayed as they engaged with the companies and gained valuable insights into what it takes to succeed in the industry.
One of the highlights of the event was a real-time survey that we conducted, asking all attendees various questions related to the diverse background that they come from.
In addition to the presentations of the organisations, we also created a series of breakout rooms for speed interviews between our students and the HR professionals from the companies. These sessions were designed to provide our students with a unique opportunity to showcase their skills and gain real-world experience in a dynamic and engaging setting. The students had the chance to hone their interview skills and receive feedback from experienced professionals, all in a supportive and low-pressure environment. The energy and enthusiasm in these sessions were palpable, with the students rising to the challenge and impressing the HR professionals with their knowledge, creativity, and passion. It was inspiring to see the potential of our students being realised right before our eyes, and we are confident that these sessions will prove to be invaluable for their future success in the tech industry.
Throughout the event, we were committed to empowering our students with the knowledge and tools they need to succeed in the tech industry. In addition to the presentations and speed interviews, we also dedicated time to sharing insights and strategies for landing a job in this competitive field. We offered guidance on how to present oneself in a professional manner and what companies are really looking for in potential employees. The tips and tricks we shared were designed to help our students stand out in a crowded field and to give them the confidence they need to succeed in the tech industry. We were inspired by the passion and determination that our students displayed throughout the event, and we are excited to see where their journeys in tech will take them.
The Career Day event was a tremendous success, with 30 students and three international companies coming together to share knowledge, insights, and experiences. The event lasted for almost three hours, with one break, and provided a valuable opportunity for students to connect with HR professionals and gain real-world experience in a supportive and engaging environment. We look forward to organizing more events like this in the future and helping our students to achieve their career goals.
What are the benefits for the companies
One of the key benefits that our Career Day event brings to the participating companies is access to a diverse pool of talented individuals. Our students come from all over the world, bringing with them unique perspectives, experiences, and skills. This diversity is a valuable asset for any company looking to build a more creative and innovative team.
Furthermore, our students are not only diverse, but they are also highly skilled in coding. Our curriculum is designed to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to become successful developers in the tech industry. Additionally, many of our students speak multiple languages, and almost all of them live in a different country from where they were born. This gives them a unique perspective on the world and makes them well-suited to work in multicultural teams.
Our Career Day event provides a great opportunity for companies to meet talented and diverse individuals who are passionate about coding and ready to make an impact in the tech industry. We believe that by connecting our students with these companies, we can help to create more diverse and innovative teams that will drive success for everyone involved.
Our students were grateful
The benefits of this event for our students were numerous and significant. Firstly, they had the opportunity to engage directly with HR professionals from leading companies in the tech industry, gaining invaluable insights into what these companies are looking for in potential employees. This experience was designed to give our students a competitive edge in the job market and to help them understand how to present themselves in the best possible light.
Finally, the event was a celebration of diversity and inclusivity. Our students come from all over the world, bringing unique perspectives and experiences to the tech industry. By providing them with opportunities to engage with leading companies, we were helping to create a more diverse and innovative tech industry that benefits everyone.
