Beyond the lectures, the summer school is a great opportunity for networking and making new contacts!
Networking events will not be recorded. Plan to attend all networking events live.
Faculty/lecturers that presented a talk on deep learning will be available in our virtual platform Remo to interact directly with students on any outstanding questions and further delve into topics of interest.
Attending a virtual career fair provides you an unique opportunity to network with individuals at companies, as well as to give you an edge in landing that next job or internship. Organizations hosting tables at the fair are interested in providing mentorship opportunities, providing background on their company, and possibly hiring individuals.
Tips for success:
Show up on time to maximize the opportunity to talk to as many organizations as possible.
Take a look at which organizations are hosting tables at the virtual career fair, they are all listed in the sponsor tab on your virtual lobby.
Research the organizations you are most interested in talking to ahead of time. Check out their company website and search online for recent news articles and other relevant information. This will help you think of questions to ask during sessions, and make conversation during the career fair.
Prepare a few talking points. The organizations that you meet will want to learn more about you! So think of an “elevator pitch” about yourself—a short overview about your background, studies, and career goals.
Ask a few questions, but allow others at the table to chat as well. We will be providing prompts to remind you to rotate tables.
Dress professionally. Even though you won’t be meeting the different hosts in person, dressing up a bit can make a good first impression with the people you are networking with.
Find a quiet spot and a neutral background and try to limit potential distractions so you can focus.
Make sure you have a stable internet connection, use a wired connection if possible.
Be mindful that other participants will want to ask questions. Keep your questions minimal and give others a chance to ask questions.
