Do your research and shortlist companies
Terry Josephson nailed it: "The more you prepare, the luckier you appear". This is your opportunity to talk to and impress staff; often founders, CTO's and senior developers. Make sure you're ready.
There’s an eclectic mix of companies offering jobs from freelance and remote roles to C-Level and founder positions across all departments. It goes without saying that some of these will not be relevant to you, so look for companies with roles relevant to your skillset. If they want someone with 4 years work experience delivering systems in RoR and you're a fresh grad with experience only in Pascal and Java, it's probably not going to work out.
Get to know the companies who'll be at the event by watching some #TeamVideos. We've encouraged teams who have a place at the event to film short videos showcasing their company. We're collecting them on our Pinterest and YouTube channel, with more added in the runup to events.
If you need to edit your Silicon Milkroundabout profile, please head to here.
Use our company page to filter and search for companies, job roles or skills and read about their missions, locations and team size. You can then shortlist your favourites to peruse at a later date on your profile page, and check out our recommendations for you if you are logged in to your account.
For a more in depth look at what it’s really like to work at each company, check out their ‘Team Video’. If a company has submitted one it will be visible on their profile, we’ve also made a collection of all of them on Pinterest here.
We’ve had some brilliant submissions over the years and they are totally unique to our event. Follow the #TeamVideos hashtag on twitter and follow our YouTube channel and our blog to keep up to date with the most recent ones, and tweet us @Milkroundabout to let us know which ones are your fav!
