Last week, members of The Execu|Search Group’s Creative & Digital division attended a HackerX event at Yahoo’s New York City headquarters.
At the invite-only event, UX and UI designers as well as other front-end developers had the opportunity to meet hiring decision makers from various companies in the area. During the session, each attendee was given five minutes to meet with each employer to discuss their background and portfolio of work, their career goals, and any potential opportunities they’d be a fit for.
“The fast-paced environment generated an exciting buzz across the room,” says Ashley Santangelo, a Staffing Manager within the Creative & Digital division. “It also allowed us to connect with some phenomenal talent. Whether they are actively looking for a new job, or simply want to learn more about the current market, we’re excited to help these designers in any way we can.”
HackerX is focused on helping companies find the best technical talent. They host exclusive hiring events for developers and designers across the US and internationally. Learn more: http://www.hackerx.org/
