Tech Talk

Please note that we are planning for virtual recruiting activities only this fall 2021 semester, including programs, events, career fairs, and student interviews. Also, during MIT’s Career Exploration Week from September 20 -24 we will only approve on Handshake employer programs which support student career exploration. Organizations are encouraged to avoid scheduling information sessions during this week. If any questions, please email hiremit@mit.edu

Tech Talk’s are more detailed presentations regarding a specific problem your company or team faced, how you diagnosed the issue, and the steps you took to solve it. Tech Talks are often presented by members with first-hand experience of the problem-solving process. 

 
Post your Tech Talk in Handshake
– Add important details such as the day/time, virtual link (or registration link), speaker bios, and a comprehensive description of what students can expect
– Add “Tech Talk” in the title of the event
– Employers are responsible for using their own virtual platform, such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams among others, to host and deliver their virtual event
