A wealth/torture of opportunities


So far I’ve really been enjoying my experience at Imperial. One thing that stands out is the wealth of career-related events that Imperial hosts. This week for our course alone, we’ve had Mozilla, Facebook and Google (twice) visit us to give talks about tech-related topics (browser graphics, company culture, solving the halting problem) and promote their companies for internships and job offerings, and give away the occasional gift items. On top of that I get several emails daily about major companies (Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Shell) hosting events around the campus. It’s almost too much to take in, and it’s hard not to feel like you’re missing out on something as you have to chose which company’s talk you want to attend. Admittedly, something I was hoping for from this degree is the connection to industry and so far Imperial is really delivering the goods!
