For those of you who aren't familiar I'm Charlyne, and I've just joined Lighthouse Labs as Director of Career Services.
I've spent the last 3 years in the Vancouver tech community, and am thrilled to be connecting our grads and alumni with the amazing opportunities available to them in Vancouver and around the country!
One of the first things I've started here, and one I'm really excited about, is the Employer Speed Dating night.
I've learned from the tech community that hiring a developer is about much more than technical capability - like any job, fit comes first.
We have the late night area inside Jones Bar reserved for the event.With her move to the Vancouver Economic Commission in 2011, Nancy brought with her 20 years of experience in the film and television industry in both production and business development for practical filmmaking, visual effects and animation.With over 25 years of experience, Shawn Williamson has risen to the forefront of the Canadian film and television industry as a leading independent film and television producer.VEC Speed Dating is only open to those who have a 3-day all-inclusive pass.Once you have a pass it is a fee to participate in the speed dating sessions.These unique sessions give fans a chance to ask questions and get answers to Hollywood’s best-kept secrets - from the celebs themselves.Prepare to be wowed and learn about how the biggest names in the industry got to the top!If you have not purchased your 3-day pass please click on this link to purchase your pass.Once you have purchased your 3-day pass please email Paula Hoffmann ( [email protected]) for the code to purchase your speed dating session pass.This allows our students, if they wish, to cater their final projects towards that outcome!So for example, if one of our students hit it off with Foodee, Foodee might say to them "we use in all our work, so we would love to see you build your final project in Ember.js" This gives the students a potentially massive leg up in securing a job once they're finished.
