Practicalities

  1. Your ticket is just for you - if you’re coming with a friend, they’ll need to apply for their own ticket.
  2. At the registration desk, we will want that email address, to check that you’re invited. We’ll give you blank sticker to write your name on. We’ve got lots of nice big felt tips, so go for large, clear letters.
  3. The event gets particularly busy at around 3pm so we’d advise trying to get there an hour either side of that to avoid the queues.
  4. When you arrive we will give you a helpful booklet describing the companies that are attending and the jobs they have on offer - it’s free and you are welcome to scribble notes all over it!
  5. There will be free WiFi, but there'll be a thousand other users, so be sensible about usage (avoid films, database downloads, etc)
  6. There will be free coffee all day, and a free bar
  7. There’s food for purchase in the food yard.
  8. There’ll be plenty of conversation about the event happening on social media - take part! Use #SMR on Twitter and Google Plus, and check out our Twitter (@milkroundabout) and Facebook for updates/pics from the day.
  9. Be polite, and patient, and don’t start conversations by asking about the salary. Ask about the mission, the technology, the background of the team, the challenges and the opportunities to grow and learn. Ask how the person you’re speaking to is doing right now. Enjoy, relax, smile!
  10. Make new friends. We have it on good authority that there are several companies whose founders met at Milkroundabout events.
  11. Any questions? In an emergency? Spot an independent recruiter? During the event look out for the (gorgeous) black-jumpered Silicon Milkroundabout crew, we’re all super friendly, calm, and will be able to help with anything.
