About the Guest Speaker Program

Part of the Careers in Code initiative is to not only provide our students with the technical skills they need to become developers, but also to teach them the neccesary "soft" skills they will use in the professional world. This includes everything from networking to technical and behavorial interview skills. In our minds, there is no better way to expose them to such important topics than to bring in industry professionals who are passioante about sharing their wealth of knowledge about their own expereiences. Our Guest Speaker Program was develoepd with this in mind, as not only a way to enhance our student's own abilities, but to expose them to the thriving tech community in Syracuse.
