We review every application to a Silicon Milkroundabout event. When you apply, we check out the online profiles you submitted, and give you a ticket to the day which best suits your skillset. Day 1 is best for product managers, project managers, designers and marketers and day 2 is best for developers and data scientists.
Remember: the more informative the online profile you send us, the easier and quicker it is for us to give you an answer. We're looking for relevant career experience, studies, courses, portfolios of relevant work, online CVs, informative LinkedIn profiles etc. Once you have your allotted day, we'll email you a ticket with a QR code to check you in super fast.
1. before the event - do your prep
Check out the companies attending, research who they are, the skills they need and make a shortlist of who you’d like to talk to.
It’s a good idea to bring something shareable to give to the companies you hit it off with. A CV, business card, cross stitch of your favourite tech icon? (or not, it’s up to you). Find out more.
Refine your pitch, make sure you’ve got some ice breakers up your sleeve and then cut straight to the chase. Find out more.
2. at the event - what to expect
You’ll receive an event pass on the day, which you can personalise with skill stickers, your name and the jobs you’re looking for.
We also give you a guide to the companies and a floorplan to make sure you get a chance to have conversations, or event first interviews, with the companies you want to work for.
Talks: We host chats with influential leaders working in some of London’s most exciting companies. Previous guests include team members from BBC Design + Engineering, JustGiving, Lush, Sofar Sounds, Gousto + more.
oh yeah and we’ll also throw in...
