Last Friday we had the opportunity to host 40 top engineering students from across the country as part of Code2040’s Tech Trek program. We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to connect during their week-long tour of Bay Area tech companies, and were left hoping we made a good enough impression that they all apply for jobs at CircleCI once they graduate 😉.
We hosted two separate 45 minute sessions for the the students who visited us. The session I coordinated consisted of three CircleCI engineers - Ian, Edward, and myself - telling the stories of how we got to where we are professionally. I won’t speak for my colleagues, but the tale I told to those 40 students was one riddled with failure.
