Amazon Discover: Spring Technology Insights UK Event

We’re excited to announce that Amazon’s Discover: Spring Technology Insight UK Event for students interested in Software Development Engineering opportunities, will be returning next year.

This event will take place virtually from 12th – 13th April 2023. This two-day experience is for students pursuing computer science or related degrees, and who are interested in software development internship opportunities in the UK; due to graduate in 2025. The event will also be followed by a virtual mentoring scheme.

This event is aimed primarily at women interested in a career in technology, but is open to all.

 

About the event:

The two-day event and the subsequent mentoring scheme aims to develop student employability and software engineering skills, with opportunities to meet mentors and expand students’ professional network, and gain insight into what Software Development Engineers do on a day-to-day-basis. Attendees will have the chance to take part in coding exercises and other technical workshops, gain interview and CV writing skills, and watch panel discussion on careers available at Amazon.

 

After the event:

After the event, participants will be invited to take part in a mentoring scheme, where they will be given guidance on how to best prepare for applying to software development engineering internship opportunities at Amazon, putting the skills learned during the event into practice.
