January 25, 2023 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hello Hoyas!

According to Crunchbase, more than 46,000 workers in U.S.-based tech companies have been laid off in mass job cuts so far in 2023, with tech giants Microsoft and Alphabet joining the pack. Read the article below to learn how it may impact you. My guess is there will be a slowing of internship postings and/or postings will appear in late Spring when companies know more. Yet, there are still many internships to apply to right now, in addition to full-time jobs. Spotify just posted their internships, for example. 

This seems to be a useful moment to share information on the tech for good arena. Did you know there is an entire sector of employment available to those of you interested in using  technology skills to make a social impact?  Terminology you may see used to designate this career path includes Public Interest Technology (PIT), Technologists for Good, CivicTech, GovTech, and Social Impact Technology. Here are a few resources to help you learn more about this exciting sector.

Almost all of these sites have mailing lists or newsletters – sign up to stay up-to-date on what’s happening and receive job and internship openings in this field on a weekly basis.

Speaking of tech for good, don’t forget about the Government, Nonprofit, and Education Career Fair on Friday, Feb 17, as well as the info session on the Cybersecurity Scholarship Program on Jan 31. 

All the best,

Tech has Crashed. Crypto dreams are shattered. What’s a college grad to do?

Hiring in tech, information and media are at their lowest level since July 2020. The sector is undergoing a “painful recalibration” that saw massive hiring during the pandemic. Many would-be tech workers have stated that they’re changing their plans to enter adjacent fields or looking for areas of minimal risk. But there is still some optimism, innovations in robotics and artificial intelligence have caught the eye of newly minted computer scientists. “There’s lots of doom and gloom in the industry with all the layoffs going on, but I don’t think many people need to worry about it.” Read more here.
