THE EXPERIENCE

Recruiting Curriculum

Participate in the Tech Club's weekly curriculum, join a case team, and prepare to interview for roles with the biggest names in tech

Our curriculum covers all the topics that you need to feel prepared when you interview for that dream job

Product design, strategy, metrics, operations - you name it, we cover it. Our structured approach to recruiting prep includes weekly classroom sessions, case teams, second-year mentors, and mock interviews.

Weekly Sessions

Dive into a range of topics, frameworks, and discussions that you can leverage in your interviews. We provide an overview of the subject and answer your questions before challenging you with real interview questions. Learn alongside your peers in this interactive setting.

Case Teams

You've learned the frameworks - now practice with peers. There's no substitute to getting in your reps and getting real-time feedback. Tech Club leaders group participants with similar levels of determination and motivation. You'll gain just as much from watching your peers answer case questions and providing them with feedback as you will when it's your turn to be interviewed.

Second-year Mentors

Each case team is led by a second-year mentor with experience in the technology industry. After reviewing the curriculum's topic of the week, they'll work with you to build your skills and confidence with the framework and answer your questions in an intimate setting.

Mock Interview Day

Let's put it all together. Tech Club's Mock Interview Day is a the closest you'll get to the real thing. The pressure is on!
