FAQ

What is the purpose of this day?

We hope to connect students to industry folks to network, find jobs, find internships, and learn a bit about how the industry actually works.

Who can attend?

Anyone who has a utoronto.ca account can attend, though the day is focused on students in the Department of Computer Science.

Will the sessions be recorded?

We are still figuring out whether or not we can record some of the sessions.

Some speakers cannot allow the sessions to be recorded, however, due to their employer's policy.

How can I register for individual sessions?

We haven't released registration per event-session yet.

For now, please regsiter your interest here.

Can I report someone that is behaving unprofessionally or harassing people?

Yes. We have a Code of Conduct that people must follow.

Please message either of the organizers on Slack or email us. Your report will remain anonymous outside of the organizers.

Where can I ask questions?

Please join us on Slack, listed on the I'm Interested page.

I'm in the industry, can I present?

As we approach March 8th, it will be harder to get people signed up to a session.

That said, we are open to new talks. You can email Julian at julian.nadeau[at]utoronto.ca with details!.
