Connect with IT Professionals

ChaTech cares about the future generation of IT professionals and ChaTech Scholars’ success as they move from college to work. Because of this, we are offering all scholarship recipients a chance for interview training and learn how to pass the technical test portion of the interview, which will be facilitated by IT professionals experienced in technical interviews. It is free and will include an opportunity to practice interviewing skills in an environment similar to an actual interview. This is a great chance to become familiar with questions, formats, and professional etiquette.

Before I came to the event last night, I was fairly confident that I could do fairly well at an interview. However, after hearing Mr. Yamada and Mr. Campbell share their expertise, I realized I have so much to learn and practice. They shared passionately and gave their time generously to ensure that I had the tools I need to succeed. I am really thankful they spent the time and gave the effort, and I have realized I would NOT have been fully prepared for an interview without their help. - Madysen Williams, 2018 Chatech Scholar recipient.
