How to land a job in tech locally or abroad - Fireside Chat

About this event

Are you a university student, fresh graduate or professional software developer and interested in pursuing and levelling up your career in tech locally or abroad? If yes, join us next Thursday for a fireside chat with Jay Sabra.

Jay graduated from LIU and moved to London for a Masters degree in 2013, and has been working in tech for over 8 years delivering software solutions for enterprises including HSBC and Microsoft. He is founder of Jsabra.com with a focus on helping Lebanese developers get jobs in the UK & Europe through a predictable job search process.


First, Jay will share his story with us on how he got his first industry job in UK after graduating. He will address the importance of coffee chats & networking in the job search and the rise in demand for developers after Covid πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»πŸš€

If you are planning to land a job abroad, Jay will share with us the reasons on how aiming to get a job with relocation is a much better option than studying abroad especially after Covid and Brexit, and the new immigration system and changes in the UK and what those mean for fresh grads.

Then we will have a panel addressing how to get an entry level or graduate job after finishing studies. Fill in this form with the questions you would like us to feature in the panel discussion https://forms.gle/DF7CgRomwDnD8o3J9
